30th Anniversary Acoustic Edition On Vinyl LP!

Newly-recorded, solo acoustic version celebrates the 30th anniversary of Grammy award winning Steady On.

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.

To commemorate the 30th anniversary of this landmark album, Colvin releases this 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.

This new release is a testament to her ever-growing abilities as a guitarist, as she strips the lush arrangements of the originals down and finds a minimalist warmth within. And it makes no apologies for how her voice has changed in three decades, giving a weathered, broken in quality to each one. At times, that is almost startling. 'Stranded' expressed a deep ache in its original version; here, it is nearly unbearable, with no production help to ease the weight of her words.
