In an era when solo singer-songwriters are ever more ubiquitous, Shawn Colvin and Loudon Wainwright III stand out as enduring and outstanding talents. Both artists have created a remarkable cannon of work and for the first time ever will be touring together for the 2010/2011 season.
Combined sales of Shawn Colvin's albums total more than 2.5 million copies in the United States alone. She has won three Grammy Awards (including Record of the Year and Song of the Year for her breakthrough hit "Sunny Came Home"), maintained a non-stop national and international touring schedule, appeared on countless television and radio programs, and had her songs featured in major motion pictures. Colvin's newest release, Shawn Colvin Live (2009) captures the beauty and intimacy of Colvin's performances, showcasing her inimitable voice and guitar artistry.
Loudon Wainwright III's performances treat audiences to a roller coaster of emotions from deeply moving introspective songs to knee slapping hilarious ones. In the words of MOJO Magazine, Wainwright is "one of America's most astute lyrical commentators .. lyrically compelling and emotionally overpowering." For his latest CD, High Wide & Handsome - The Charlie Poole Project (2009), Loudon revisits the life, times, and recorded legacy of legendary singer and banjo picker, Charlie Poole. Loudon is also an accomplished actor and has recently worked with directors Martin Scorsese, Tim Burton, Cameron Crowe, and Judd Apatow, all while remaining one of the most original and impressive performers of his generation.
