Shawn Colvin is one of the leading lights of the so-called “new folk movement” that began in the late ’80s. Although she grew out of the somewhat limited “woman with a guitar” school, she kept the form fresh with a diverse approach, avoiding the genre’s clichéd sentiments and all-too-often formulaic arrangements in favor of a more personal, pop-influenced style. 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. Colvin still commands a broad, loyal following into the subsequent decades.
