Description

In an era when female singer-songwriters are ever more ubiquitous, Shawn Colvin stands out as a singular and enduring talent. Her songs are slow-release works of craft and catharsis that become treasured, lifetime companions for their listeners. As a storyteller, Colvin is both keen and warm-hearted, leavening even the toughest tales with tenderness, empathy, and a searing sense of humor. In the 19 years since the release of her debut album, Colvin has won three Grammy Awards, released eight albums, maintained a non-stop national and international touring schedule, appeared on countless television and radio programs, had her songs featured in major motion pictures, and created a remarkable canon of work.

Combined sales of her albums total more than 2.5 million copies in the United States alone, and Colvin continues to perform at least 50–60 shows a year. Over the years she has shared the stage and toured with legendary artists such as Jackson Browne, Bonnie Raitt, Bruce Hornsby, Emmylou Harris, and Lyle Lovett. She has toured internationally throughout her career, returning to places as near as the UK and Europe as far as Asia, Australia, and New Zealand. She was honored to perform with David Broza and Jackson Browne in a very special sunrise concert at the base of the 2000-year-old fortress of Masada in Southern Israel, overlooking the Dead Sea. The concert was broadcast on PBS stations throughout the U.S. in the late fall of 2007 and in early 2008.

Holly Figueroa O’Reilly is an award-winning, twice Grammy- nominated performing songwriter. Her career spans 12 years, during which she toured and performed over 900 concerts internationally, recorded and released 9 solo records, was included on 8 compilations, and was a guest performer on over 20 other artist’s records. She’s performed nearly every genre of music, from blues to jazz to country to R&B, and is currently working as a producer and engineer with young hip hop artists from LA, San Francisco, and Seattle. She is working on her 10th studio release, and teaches voice, music theory, cello, piano, guitar, and several other instruments in her Seattle studio.
