Singer/songwriter Shawn Colvin has been the standard bearer for the folk movement since her Grammy Award winning debut album was released in 1989. While her name is synonymous with the mid-1990s Lilith Fair-era folk movement, her sound transcends easy categorization. Her clear, plaintive voice and thoughtful lyrics pick up where Joni Mitchell leaves off, creating songs that take the listener out of time and place.
