About this Album
In her first-ever memoir, Diamond in the Rough, acclaimed songwriter and musician Shawn Colvin shares her candid, colorful coming-of-age story, including more than three decades of touring, writing, and living to make music. The wit, lyricism, and empathy found in the book are traits that have long characterized Colvin’s songwriting and her live performances. Diamond in the Rough is published by William Morrow / HarperCollins.
"There are humor, remorse, and gratitude in her narrative," says the Boston Globe. "Colvin illuminates the magical blend of craft and happenstance that leads to powerful music."
