  • Polaroids <3
  • "Get Out Of This House" was my favorite song when I was around 7 years old... my dad's boss's daughter made a mix-tape for me, and it was on it. So glad I rediscovered it again almost 17 years later!
  • it's really good indeed
  • The more I listen the more I believe "All Fall Down" may be one of my favorite records ever
  • "Colvin cites Joni Mitchell as a primary influence on her music" yet Joni doesn't show up as similar artist... hmmm
  • Really really need her to record her cover of Tom Waites "Hold On", it's amazing.
  • sad she's not worldwidely acclaimed. although i dont know if she would want that or not. there's something so unique about her, and i wish i could pinpoint it exactly.
  • The voice of Shawn Colvin is simply unique and her music so gentle and, nevertheless, miraculous powerfully
  • Matches.
  • Her (old?) manager came to my college as a guest speaker. Spoke how "Sunny Came Home" was originally "Little Red Men". Interesting. :)
