Shawn Colvin

Hardcore Humanism with Dr. Mike

Today we are talking with Grammy Award winning musician, singer and songwriter Shawn Colvin. You may know Shawn from some of her hit songs such as “Sunny Came Home.” And Shawn has a new live album out called Dragon Clouds, a recording of a 1994 Los Angeles show. Shawn will also be touring in 2022 to mark the 30th anniversary of her debut album Steady On. Now on a personal note, it was wonderful to get the chance to talk with Shawn again. Shawn was actually one of the first artists I ever interviewed for Psychology Today who was open about her struggles with mental health. The first time we spoke was back in 2014 where Shawn shared her struggle with depression and alcoholism. What was so striking was Shawn’s openness about how depression interfered with her engaging in basic life functioning. Just getting up in the morning could be an all day task if it ever happened at all. And the feedback I got on the interview was so powerful. People talked about how the stigma of mental illness had held them back from sharing their mental health issues with others, in some cases so much so that people didn’t get treatment for their depression and addiction. And Shawn’s sharing her story gave people hope that they could reach out and get the help and support they needed. And that feedback was ultimately one of the reasons my wife Aylin and I decided to eventually launch The Hardcore Humanism Podcast. We saw the power of someone like Shawn to not only change people’s lives through their music, but also through sharing personal stories of how they overcame barriers such as depression and addiction to pursue their authentic lives. A core goal of humanistic approaches to therapy is to help people remove barriers in their lives so that they can self-actualize. And one of the barriers that many people face in pursuing and achieving their best, actualized selves is mental illness.  In our conversation today we talk in depth with Shawn about how depression and alcoholism interfered with a central core feature of her purpose in life, which is to be a creative artist. And Shawn talks specifically about the regimen that she uses for her ongoing recovery from both depression and alcoholism. *****Newsletter: https://lp.constantcontactpages.com/su/GBmf0iU/HardcoreHumanismSignUp Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/hardcorehumanism/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/HardcoreHumanism/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/hardcorhumanism LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/hardcore-humanism

320. Sarah Jarosz on Shawn Colvin 'A Few Small Repairs' (1996)

My Favorite Album with Jeremy Dylan

Grammy-award winning singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist wunderkind Sarah Jarosz joins me to talk about Shawn Colvin’s classic ‘A Few Small Repairs’ album, from discovering it as a prepubescent growing up in Texas to falling in love with the album on a whole new level during an I’m With Her tour a few years ago. We dig into the way the Texas singer-songwriter scene loomed over Sarah as a child, meeting and working with Shawn and other legendary musicians including Paul Simon, the many subtleties in the arrangements throughout the album and how she teamed up with the album’s producer, friend of the show John Leventhal, to make her brilliant new album ‘World on the Ground’.

What my father gave me, by Shawn Colvin

Meditative Story

Shawn Colvin grows up in a dangerous house. There’s a dad with a hair-trigger temper. But there’s also a dad who builds things, and who plays music, who teaches Shawn how to play a guitar. Years later, an out-of-the-blue phone call gives Shawn the opportunity to explain to her dad what her childhood was like – and to forgive him. In this act of compassion, Shawn is able to let go of her own burden and find compassion for herself — who she is now and the lost little kid she used to be.Read a transcript of this story at: https://meditativestory.com/shawn-colvin/Sign up for the Meditative Story newsletter, to get a timely episode reminder and a mini meditation in your inbox: http://eepurl.com/gyDGgDSee Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.
