Diamond in the Rough

review × E-book, or Kindle E-pub Õ Shawn Colvin Diamond in the Rough Free read ✓ 9 Shawn Colvin Õ 9 Free download After learning to play guitar at the age of ten Shawn Colvin was determined to make a life in music a decision that would send a small town girl out on the open road for good In 1997 two decades after she started she got her big break Like the troubled would be arsonist and survivor of her smash hit Sunny Came Home Colvin knows a thing or two about heartache and setting fires Diamond in the Rough recounts this passionate musician's coming of age from the prairies of South Dakot. I have been a Shawn Colvin fan for over 10 years so I went into this with high hopes As a memoir I think it is pretty well written lots of personal stories and information That being said however this is the first autobiographybiography that I think I like the subject less after reading their book I still love her music but personally she comes across being uite self centered which she admits to and blaming a lot of others for her problems I would recommend this book just on it s inside look at her music career

review × E-book, or Kindle E-pub Õ Shawn Colvin Diamond in the Rough Free read ✓ 9 Shawn Colvin Õ 9 Free download A to the dark smoky bars in Austin Texas to the world stage at the GrammysHumorous and deeply honest Colvin relates the experiences behind her best loved songs in vivid color in this memoir Diamond in the Rough captures her years of touring cross country in bands and vans full of guys; falling in and out of love; meeting heroes like Joni Mitchell; searching for her musical identity; and making friendships that would last a lifetime It is also an unflinching account of Colvin's. This book is pretty uneven though that s also how I find Colvin s music some of it I love some of it I have to skip She breezes uickly through her childhood detailing a few formative experiences which I thought was good no reason to dwell too much there But she sort of skimmed over the alcohol addiction part and at one point she mentions drugs but doesn t come back to it she is candid about it but doesn t seem to be telling the whole story While I respect her privacy writing a book like this was her choice and I do think that being upfront might be helpful to the readerI felt the same way about some of her relationships While she describes both her husbands and explains her reasons for the marriages failing I d rather that she had shown us She tells us about her commitment issues but doesn t give examples of how they were overwhelming or caused problems Again some of this is probably out of respect for her privacy as well as theirs but I don t think that telling us how you felt in love and falling out is too much to ask of a singer songwriter writing a biography She dwells on a failed romance after her 2nd marriage almost as long as she does both marriages it s a little tough to read because the person isn t named I understand why but I wish she could have brought the same candor to the parts where she discusses the people that she thought she d be with foreverShe does a great job with her depression I think this is a must read for anyone who s grappled with depression or mental health issues Colvin is upfront though not too detailed it s a good balanceabout her own battles with depression and does a good job describing her feelings how she is able to maintain her job and lifestyle while dealing with these issues And I don t think she tells too much here she maintains a level of distanceAs someone who s followed her career since the beginning it was also nice to read about the making of her albums and what ideas were behind the songs her writing process etc If you re not familiar with her work that may not be interesting to you but she is a good songwriterIf you re a fan a writer or interested in depression and related issues this is a good book for you Otherwise it s pacing is kind of uneven and you may not care enough to pick it up Whispers of Feathers pretty uneven though that s also how I find Colvin s music some of it I love some of it I have to skip She breezes uickly through her childhood detailing a few formative experiences which I thought was good no reason to dwell too much there But she sort of skimmed over the alcohol addiction Entrepreneurial Vernacular Developers' Subdivisions in the 1920s Creating the North American Landscape point she mentions drugs but doesn t come back to it she is candid about it but doesn t seem to be telling the whole story While I respect her Advanced C Programming by Example privacy writing a book like this was her choice and I do think that being upfront might be helpful to the readerI felt the same way about some of her relationships While she describes both her husbands and explains her reasons for the marriages failing I d rather that she had shown us She tells us about her commitment issues but doesn t give examples of how they were overwhelming or caused After We Collided problems Again some of this is Die Herrenschneiderei probably out of respect for her Cities of God The Real Story of How Christianity Became an Urban Movement and Conuered Rome person isn t named I understand why but I wish she could have brought the same candor to the Daisy Malone and the Blue Glowing Stone people that she thought she d be with foreverShe does a great job with her depression I think this is a must read for anyone who s grappled with depression or mental health issues Colvin is upfront though not too detailed it s a good balanceabout her own battles with depression and does a good job describing her feelings how she is able to maintain her job and lifestyle while dealing with these issues And I don t think she tells too much here she maintains a level of distanceAs someone who s followed her career since the beginning it was also nice to read about the making of her albums and what ideas were behind the songs her writing Pretend God Is Deaf process etc If you re not familiar with her work that may not be interesting to you but she is a good songwriterIf you re a fan a writer or interested in depression and related issues this is a good book for you Otherwise it s Cased Images Tintypes KwikGuide pacing is kind of uneven and you may not care enough to Las Puertas Del Amor pick it up

Shawn Colvin Õ 9 Free download

review × E-book, or Kindle E-pub Õ Shawn Colvin Diamond in the Rough Free read ✓ 9 Shawn Colvin Õ 9 Free download Struggles weathering addiction and depression learning to care for not only herself but also a child and always channeling those experiences into songWith the wit lyricism and empathy that have characterized Colvin's performances and inspired audiences worldwide Diamond in the Rough looks back over a rich lifetime of highs and lows with stunning insight and candor In its pages we witness the inspiring story of a woman honing her artistry finding her voice and making herself who. I love books about artists discovering themselves and Colvin s memoir is no exception What s even fascinating is that she seemed to stumble into her career because she really wasn t good at anything else She had a huge substance abuse problem which will limit how much and what you can do but she always found the energy for her guitar She loved playing guitar and came from a musical family She had some natural talent for melody She could listen to a song on the radio and then play it But writing her own material was an uphill climb and she spent so many years playing in bars covering other singers She has a beautiful voice but she doesn t seem to know that She says something like I can carry a tune I can stay in tune I have a sturdy alto with decent octave range And I am thinking Don t you know how pretty your voice is That didn t seem to matter to her She just loved the music Playing it and singing it and gigging with friends And also drinking A lot And falling in and out of love A lot Sounds fun right She put a rag tag sort of life together singing and trying to write songs for a long time before she got a record contract I was surprised at how difficult songwriting was for her She mostly did lyrics and found a collaborator for the music Somehow from this she forged a brilliant career I won t spoil it by saying how It sure was fun to read about Why 4 not 5 Her writing skills are not great Not terrible and it s a terrific story but at one point she says something like I have never attempted to write something of this length You probably guessed that She s funny and honest and gives uite a bit of insight into one artist s meandering path to success beyong her wildest dreams And I love those happy endings
