Shawn Colvin

November 20, 1989

A veteran of the “fast folk” movement of the early ‘80s, singer-songwriter Shawn Colvin chanced into a gig as Suzanne Vega’s backup singer before signing to Columbia as a solo artist.

Her solo acoustic appearance on SNAP coincided with the release of her 1989 debut album, “Steady On.”
