Shawn Colvin Biography
Shawn Colvin was born January 10, 1958 in South Dakota. Colvin's road to stardom seemed to come out of nowhere in 1997 with the sudden pop success of "Sunny Came Home," but Colvin's legacy in folk/rock music had already given her a strong fan base and critical acclaim.
As a child, Colvin was learning to play the guitar at age 10 and starring in The King And I in her teens. In college in Illinois, Colvin played hard rock with the Shawn Colvin Band. When neither studying or hard rock was making any waves, Colvin moved to Texas and joined the Dixie Diesels - and then to San Francisco - and then to New York where she joined the Buddy Miller Band.
While in New York, Colvin met up with John Leventhal who eventually became her longtime writing partner and producer.
