  • Strong vocals, consistently well-crafted lyrics, accomplished musicianship, and forceful melodies comprise this impressive debut by Shawn Colvin. From the highly original opening title track, which features some of Shawn's most silky, fluid vocals, the listener is taken through a collection of first-rate songs, each building on the emotion and musical power of the last.
  • Highlights include "Diamond In The Rough," "Shotgun Down The Avalanche" and "Something To Believe In." The songs show off Shawn's diverse influences; they are equal parts folk, pop, country and rock. Using a strong backbeat and a heavy lyrical side, Colvin expresses both angst and affirmation as she explores the paradoxes of love and relationships.
  • This 1989 release won the "Best Folk Album" Grammy, but it is not a folk album in the traditional sense. In fact, it was one of the year's best rock albums. Shawn's breathy vocals and shimmering timbre, sharp rock arrangements, and perceptively astute lyrics bring this outstanding album to a high level of originality and quality. STEADY ON, Shawn Colvin forges ahead, breaking new musical ground.
