If you've ever heard Shawn Colvin, you already know how her voice and her lyrics cut to the core. She sings with such precision and clarity, and yet always sounds so free and easy. She has a knack in her music for telling the truth, and even when the truth is hard to face, she makes you feel as though you can face it too. Honesty, with a sense of humor-that's what she delivers. "Sunny came home with a vengeance." She can be tender too, "If there were no music then I would not get through."
 
With Grammy awards for Best Contemporary Folk Album, Record of the Year, and Song of the Year, plus seven more nominations, she has long been recognized as one of the best singer-songwriters in the business. Born in Vermillion, South Dakota, raised in Carbondale, Illinois, she spent time in Austin and Berkeley in the 1970s, before moving on to New York City and becoming a fixture on the folk scene in the 1980s. She's worked with Suzanne Vega, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Buddy Miller, Emmylou Harris, Patty Griffin, James Taylor, and Lyle Lovett, and appeared on both Treme and The Simpsons. The New York Times called her memoir, Diamond in the Rough, "candid about her heartaches but also comically self-deprecating." Yes, she's honest and funny and insightful on the page, but wait'll you hear her with a guitar and a microphone on the Freight stage!
