Bio: Shawn Colvin

Shawn Colvin won her first GRAMMY Award for Best Contemporary Folk Album with her debut album, Steady On, in 1989. She has been a mainstay of the contemporary folk music scene ever since, releasing twelve superlative albums and establishing herself as one of America’s greatest live performers. She triumphed at the 1998 GRAMMY Awards, winning both Record and Song of the Year for “Sunny Came Home.” Her inspiring and candid memoir, Diamond In The Rough, was published in 2012. With the wit, lyricism, and empathy that characterize Shawn’s performances, Diamond in the Rough looks back over a rich lifetime of highs and lows with stunning insight and candor.

Shawn’s most recent solo endeavor, Uncovered, is the long-awaited follow up to fan-favorite Cover Girl. Uncovered includes masterful interpretations of songs by Bruce Springsteen, Paul Simon, Tom Waits, Stevie Wonder, Graham Nash and more. In June 2016, Shawn Colvin and Steve Earle united to release, Colvin & Earle, their acclaimed self-titled duo album. Fueled by their longtime friendship, Colvin & Earle beautifully captures the pair’s extraordinary chemistry and is a true standout in careers already filled with pinnacles and masterpieces.

Shawn was recently recognized for her career accomplishments when she was honored with the 2016 Lifetime Achievement Trailblazer Award by the Americana Music Association. Presenting her with this prestigious award was Bonnie Raitt. Said Raitt, “She’s simply one of the best singers I’ve ever heard—and a truly gifted and deep songwriter and guitarist… She was groundbreaking when she emerged and continues to inspire me and the legions of fans and other singer/songwriters coming up in her wake.”

Shawn Colvin’s latest release is The Starlighter (Amazon Music), a new album of songs adapted from the children's music book "Lullabies and Night Songs." The Starlighters’s 14 tracks are a mix of traditional numbers and children's standards, an elegant and graceful collection for listeners of all ages.

Bio: Marc Cohn

After winning a Grammy for his soulful ballad “Walking in Memphis,” Marc Cohn solidified his place as one of this generation’s most compelling singer-songwriters, combining the precision of a brilliant tunesmith with the passion of a great soul man. Rooted in the rich ground of American rhythm and blues, soul and gospel and possessed of a deft storyteller’s pen, he weaves vivid, detailed, often drawn-from-life tales that evoke some of our most universal human feelings: love, hope, faith, joy, heartbreak.

Cohn followed up his platinum-selling debut with two more releases in the 1990s, at which point Time magazine called him "one of the honest, emotional voices we need in this decade" and Bonnie Raitt declared, "Marc is one of the most soulful, talented artists I know. I love his songs, he's an incredible singer, and I marvel at his ability to mesmerize every audience he plays for."

Raitt, James Taylor, David Crosby, Graham Nash and Patty Griffin all made guest appearances on Cohn’s early records for Atlantic as his reputation as an artist and performer continued to grow. In 1998, Cohn took a decade-long sabbatical from recording, ending in 2007 with Join the Parade. Inspired by the horrific events following Hurricane Katrina and his own near fatal shooting just weeks before, Parade is his most moving and critically acclaimed record to date.

About his album Listening Booth: 1970, a collection of reimagined classics from that seminal year in music, Rolling Stone said, “Cohn has one of rock’s most soulful croons – a rich, immediately recognizable tenor that makes these songs his own.” In late 2014, Cohn released “The Coldest Corner in the World,” the title song to the documentary Tree Man and his first original song released in more than seven years.

On March 25, 2016, in celebration of the 25th anniversary of his platinum-selling debut album, released Careful What You Dream: Lost Songs and Rarities along with the bonus album Evolution of a Record, featuring never-before-heard songs and demos dating back to years before his debut album and the Grammy award that followed.

Marc’s momentum continued into a busy and fruitful 2017, which he spent in part on the road with the legendary Michael McDonald, garnering critical acclaim across the U.S. His writing talent was also drafted for work with a roster of American music greats including soul survivor William Bell, who won his first Grammy at age 78 with Marc’s help; Marc co-wrote a solid half of Bell’s celebrated album This is Where I Live, including the passionate opening cut “The Three Of Me.” The album revived the sound of Stax soul’s golden age, when Bell had first cut his teeth as an artist, and which had influenced Marc Cohn so powerfully - in its way, completing a circle and letting Marc give back to one of the originators of the sound that shaped him.

Marc revisited another corner of American music’s rich heritage with the Blind Boys of Alabama on the Grammy-nominated song “Let My Mother Live,” and also worked with David Crosby on the album Lighthouse. As powerfully influenced by the singer-songwriter tradition as he is by the legacy of soul and gospel, working with the ‘60s icon was a project that got right to Marc’s creative core.

Moving forward, he continues to do what he does best: infuse American music with both a fresh perspective and a reverence for its deep roots.

Bio: Sarah Jarosz

On her latest full-length World On the Ground, Sarah Jarosz shares a collection of stories of her Texas hometown, each song lit up in her captivating voice and richly detailed songwriting. Throughout the album, the three-time Grammy Award-winner explores the tension and inertia of small-town living, the desire for escape and the ease of staying put. As she inhabits characters both real and imagined—many of them sensitive souls prone to aimless wandering and back-porch daydreaming—Jarosz reveals her remarkable gift for slipping into the inner lives of others and patiently uncovering so much indelible insight.
 
The follow-up to 2016’s two-time Grammy Award-winning UndercurrentWorld On the Ground came to life in collaboration with producer/songwriter John Leventhal: a five-time Grammy Award-winner known for his work with artists like Elvis Costello, Lucinda Williams, and his wife Rosanne Cash. Along with shaping the album’s spacious yet lushly textured sound, Leventhal played a vital part in Jarosz’s decision to center the album on her intricate storytelling.
 
“The first time we met to talk about the record, John said he wanted me to try to take a step back and look out at the world in my songwriting, rather than looking inward,” says Jarosz. “It completely opened the gates for me, and I started thinking a lot about growing up in Texas and diving into those memories in a way I’d never really done before. I think it has something to do with being in my late 20s, and starting to enter the phase where I’m looking back at what got me to where I am now—as opposed to constantly looking forward, as you do when you’re younger. It felt like the right time for me to return full circle to my roots and my home.”
 
Recorded at Leventhal’s Manhattan studio, World On the Ground takes its title from “Pay It No Mind,” a bright and soulful track threaded with a bit of breezy wisdom from Jarosz (e.g., “When the world on the ground is gonna swallow you down/Sometimes you’ve got to pay it no mind”). “To me so much of this album feels like the bird in the song who’s up on the seventh floor looking down at the world, taking it all in,” she says. “I feel like that’s so much of the struggle today: trying to combat the noise around you, and get down to the real stuff that’s happening in our lives.”
 
Elsewhere on World On the Ground, Jarosz delivers a series of character sketches nearly novelistic in emotional scope. A warmhearted portrait of “someone who’s traveled the world and then ends back up where they came from,” according to Jarosz, “Johnny” unfolds with both luminous melody and hard-won truth (one of the song’s many long-lingering observations: “An open heart looks a lot like the wilderness”). On “Maggie,” meanwhile, Jarosz presents a finespun narrative sparked from an encounter at her ten-year high school reunion. “I ran into an old friend who told me, ‘All I want is get out of here, and I just can’t seem to escape,’” says Jarosz, who grew up in a town called Wimberley (population: 2,626). Slow-burning and soul-stirring, “Maggie” emerges as a message of empathy and courage, with Jarosz singing knowingly of “fields that led to nothing but a song you’re singing in your head.”
 
On “Hometown,” Jarosz turns her attention to a girl who “got out faster than the fireworks,” tempering the track’s restless mood with tender reflection—an element inspired by her own experiences in visiting Wimberley from her New York City home. “There’s this out-of-body feeling you get when you go back home and really take in the world around you,” Jarosz says. “It’s happy and it’s melancholy at the same exact time—you just sort of feel the weight of everything.”
 
One of the most hypnotic moments on World On the Ground, “Orange and Blue” offers up a more ethereal meditation on place, its piano-laced reverie conjuring an enchanted idyll. “John came to me with a clip of an idea he’d recorded, and I very quickly had this dreamlike vision of walking down to the banks of Cypress Creek,” says Jarosz, referring to a tree-canopied body of water back in Wimberley. As “Orange and Blue” captures that landscape in exquisite detail, Jarosz turns poetic in her depiction of digging into the earth and unearthing what she describes as “a heart that’s so buried it’s almost impossible to find, and you almost can’t believe it.”
 
In pushing toward the profound specificity of World On the Ground, Jarosz studied many of the great Texas songwriters, including Nanci Griffith, Guy Clark, Lyle Lovett, and James McMurtry. She also mined plenty of inspiration from Shawn Colvin, whose Grammy Award-winning debut album Steady On was produced by Leventhal himself. “Growing up, I’d hear my parents tell stories about going to see Shawn Colvin at Cactus Café in Austin before anyone knew who she was,” says Jarosz. “Her music was a very prominent part of my upbringing.”
 
Now 28-years-old, Jarosz began her own musical journey by singing as a little girl and taking up mandolin at the age of nine.  As she honed her singular songwriting voice and multi-instrumental skills, Jarosz released her debut album Song Up in Her Head in 2009 and garnered her first Grammy Award nomination at the age of 18. While studying at the New England Conservatory, she delivered Follow Me Down in 2011 and Build Me Up from Bones in 2013, which earned her two additional Grammy nominations. After graduation, she relocated to New York City and released her fourth album Undercurrent in 2016—which won the Grammy Award for Best Folk Album, with her song “House of Mercy” receiving the Best American Roots Performance prize. Jarosz then teamed up with fellow musicians Sara Watkins and Aoife O’Donovan to record the debut album from their band I’m With Her. Arriving in early 2018, See You Around led to extensive touring, followed by the release of I’m With Her’s Grammy Award-winning single “Call My Name.” “Being able to step away and create with Sara and Aoife sort of refreshed my brain a bit, so that I was able to come back and be more inspired and excited than ever to work on my own music,” Jarosz notes.
 
As Jarosz points out, the nature of her collaboration with Leventhal deeply informed the dynamic energy of World On the Ground. Crafting the album’s subtle tapestry of sound almost entirely on their own, the two musicians tracked most of the songs with a deliberate lack of pressure or preciousness. “From the beginning John said to me, ‘OK, we’re just making demos here’—but then about 90 percent of what I thought were demos wound up on the record,” says Jarosz. “Because of that, I think there’s a magic that comes through in the songs. Instead of judging myself or getting in my head too much, we were just creating true music in the moment.”
 
In the making of World On the Ground, Jarosz ultimately moved undeniably closer to one of her greatest ambitions as an artist: to create an emotionally honest body of work that continually reveals new meaning for the listener. “My favorite records are the ones I just want to play over and over again because of all the details that are there to discover,” she says. “As I was writing this record, it was the deepest I’d ever gone in terms of getting down to the very specific details in the way I told each story. The details are what make people feel something and connect the story to their own lives, and that’s really all I want for my music.”
