I’m a huge fan of Shawn Colvin, she’s an amazing singer, distinctive and exquisitely musical down to every inhale, and she’s a monster guitar player with the best right hand on the circuit, not to mention that she’s a fantastic writer. I’ve never met her, but I’ve always hoped that if I mentioned her in enough interviews, I’d one day get a phone call from a number in Austin TX and a voice would say, “Hey man, want to collaborate on an album?” SINCE THAT HASN’T HAPPENED, I’ve decided to take matters into my own hands.
Ms. Colvin has been posting quarantine content on FB lately, and she recently did this gorgeous song, which is from an amazing 2001 album called Whole New You. And so, in my part-time lockdown project of trying to figure out how to use these free apps on my computer, I pushed “Split Screen” on my iMovie and created this little collaboration. She didn’t need a piano player, but now she has one!
