Shawn Colvin won her first GRAMMY Award for Best Contemporary Folk Album with her debut album, Steady On, in 1989. She has been a mainstay of the contemporary folk music scene ever since, releasing twelve superlative albums and establishing herself as one of America’s greatest live performers. She triumphed at the 1998 GRAMMY Awards, winning both Record and Song of the Year for “Sunny Came Home.” Her inspiring and candid memoir, Diamond In The Rough, was published in 2012. With the wit, lyricism, and empathy that characterize Shawn’s performances, Diamond in the Rough looks back over a rich lifetime of highs and lows with stunning insight and candor.

Shawn’s most recent solo endeavor, Uncovered, is the long-awaited follow up to fan-favorite Cover Girl. Uncovered includes masterful interpretations of songs by Bruce Springsteen, Paul Simon, Tom Waits, Stevie Wonder, Graham Nash and more. In June 2016, Shawn Colvin and Steve Earle united to release, Colvin & Earle, their acclaimed self-titled duo album. Fueled by their longtime friendship, Colvin & Earle beautifully captures the pair’s extraordinary chemistry and is a true standout in careers already filled with pinnacles and masterpieces.

Shawn was recently recognized for her career accomplishments when she was honored with the 2016 Lifetime Achievement Trailblazer Award by the Americana Music Association. Presenting her with this prestigious award was Bonnie Raitt. Said Raitt, “She’s simply one of the best singers I’ve ever heard— and a truly gifted and deep songwriter and guitarist… She was groundbreaking when she emerged and continues to inspire me and the legions of fans and other singer/songwriters coming up in her wake”

Shawn Colvin’s latest release is The Starlighter (Amazon Music), a new album of songs adapted from the children's music book "Lullabies and Night Songs." The Starlighters’s 14 tracks are a mix of traditional numbers and children's standards, an elegant and graceful collection for listeners of all ages.

Featured on NPR's Song Of The Day and the BBC, Brooklynite Rebecca Pronsky's songs are gritty and dark, layered and dreamy, bravely disobeying the usual conventions of the Americana genre. Her music has twice been a regional finalist in the Mountain Stage New Song competition and her songs have appeared in television shows. Rebecca's latest album 'Only Daughter' was named a Top 10 Country Album Of The Year by the UK's Daily Telegraph which also gave it four stars and called her music "enjoyable and beguiling."

"Rebecca Pronsky addresses the struggles of a generation attempting to get by…Pronsky's voice conveys the wisdom of experience. Personal, anecdotal and emotional." - NPR, SONG OF THE DAY
"Talented local folk-pop songsmith. Her writing is literate, passionate, and wry." - TIME OUT NY
"…Displays the same remarkable mix of grace and grit as Neko Case … Definitely one to watch." - EXPONENT
