    Nonesuch to Release Shawn Colvin's New "Live" Album June 23

    Nonesuch will release its second album by Grammy Award–winning singer/songwriter/guitarist Shawn Colvin, Live, on June 23, 2009. Recorded in 2008 during a special three night solo engagement at San Francisco’s famous jazz club Yoshi’s, Live includes 12 songs written or co-written by Colvin, as well as covers of songs by Robbie Robertson, Gnarls Barkley, and the Talking Heads. The record was co-produced by Colvin and longtime collaborator John Leventhal.

    Colvin has been praised by audiences and critics for her live performances since the beginning of her career. This month, Colvin continues to tour—along with label mate Emmylou Harris, Patty Griffin, and Buddy Miller—as Three Girls and Their Buddy, scheduled into early July. Following those shows, Colvin will stay on the road, alternating solo dates in the northeast with an opening slot on Jackson Browne’s American tour. For tour dates, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    A three-time Grammy winner, Shawn Colvin has released eight albums to date, including the platinum A Few Small Repairs, which featured the hit song “Sunny Came Home.” Colvin's songs have been included on many motion picture soundtracks and she has also made appearances in films, on television, and on the stage.

    Colvin’s most recent album, These Four Walls (Nonesuch, 2006), was lauded by People magazine as “the most self-assured album of her career” and called “one for the ages” by the Washington Post. The Austin-American Statesman called it “an exquisite portrait of strength and vulnerability.” She recently signed a deal with Harper Collins Publishers to write a memoir, which will be an extension of the intimate, personal, and often hilarious stories that she weaves into her live concerts.

    Mountain Man has released Mountain Man Sings Fiona Apple, featuring its version of “Hot Knife,” from Apple’s 2012 album, The Idler Wheel..., the latest release in the trio's series of cover singles. "If we followed Questlove's advice and made gratitude lists before we went to bed every night," the trio says, "Fiona Apple would be at the top every time. She tells the truth like no one else does. Thank you, Fiona Apple. We love you." Glide described a 2018 Mountain Man performance of the song as “three voices colliding and weaving like a sensual fever dream.”
