Shawn Colvin

Shawn Colvin is one of the leading lights of the so-called "new folk movement" that began in the late '80s. Colvin's debut record won the Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Folk Album in 1991, but it was her 1997 single, "Sunny Came Home," that firmly catapulted her into the mainstream. Although she never revisited that commercial peak again, Colvin still commanded a broad, loyal following into the subsequent decades. [+]
