Sharon Little

Sharon Little

At the start of 2008, Sharon Little was working as a waitress. Less than five months later, she was appearing in concert halls throughout the country as the opening act on the Robert Plant/Alison Krauss and T Bone Burnett “Raising Sand” tour. The release of Paper Doll, Little’s second record, succeeds Little’s triumphant Raising Sand concert tour. She was selected from dozens of acts clamoring for the slot, and Sharon…

Shaun Labelle

Shaun Labelle

Shaun LaBelle isn’t your typical jazz artist. This multi-instrumentalist is nationally active in several facets of the music industry, working in production and voice over roles for records and commercials, and spending time in front of the camera as well. His first TV gig came at age 5, in a nationally distributed toy commercial, and since then he’s done a little bit of everything. Now with the release of his…

Shawn Colvin

Shawn Colvin

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…

Shawun

Shawn Mullins & Patty Larkin

Since we last heard from Shawn Mullins on 2008’s Honeydew, the Atlanta-based singer/songwriter and bandleader has undergone a series of transformative experiences, leading to a second coming for the veteran artist. Evidence of Mullins’ newfound level of musical and lyrical ambition courses comes through with Light You Up. This captivating new song cycle will likely be viewed as a flat-out revelation even by Mullins’ most fervent fans. His experiences included…

Dubbed “the best kept secret in the music business” by the late rock musician Bill Graham, Shawn Phillips’ musical palate is as wide as his more-than-4-octave vocal range. Praised for his unusual style and full use of the English language, Phillips defies all conventions of popular music. He has composed some of the most intense and thought-provoking music in the business, and has earned a devoted following. Phillips got his…

Shelby Lynne

Shelby Lynne

She has established herself as a country singer. She has flirted with success in the pop world. She has taken on a rock persona, channeling Dusty Springfield. And still, ten albums and over 20 years into her music career, Shelby Lynne is still one of the most unique voices in popular music today. The artist whose sixth album, I Am Shelby Lynne, won her a Best New Artist Grammy in…
