30th Anniversary Solo Acoustic Edition!

New light cast on landmark, Grammy-winning album!

Shawn Colvin's debut album, Steady On, was released in October 1989, a stunning introduction to an artist who quickly established herself as a mainstay in the singer-songwriter genre. The album was lauded for its confessional songwriting and well-crafted melodies, and for Colvin's tender and provocative vocals. Colvin received the ultimate acknowledgement for Steady On when she was awarded the Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Folk Album. She swiftly amassed a dedicated and passionate fanbase, to whom this album remains very special.

On September 13, to commemorate the 30th anniversary of this landmark album, Colvin will be releasing a newly-recorded, solo acoustic version. Colvin brings a 30-year lens to her treasured songs, casting new light on the stories she first told as a young artist. Colvin has always been hailed as an exemplary solo acoustic performer and these new recordings are a brilliant showcase for her enduring artistry.

Says Colvin, "Steady On was my first record. I felt so proud because all I ever wanted in my life was to create a record of my own songs. And I did it. I always felt like if I never ever made another record, I would be totally happy with my career and with my output and with what I had done because it was my dream come true.
