Her first official paid gig came just after she started college at Southern Illinois University. With a strip of bars down the main street it wasn’t difficult to find a gig. “For $30 I played four 45-minute sets.” For the next year she was either playing somewhere or sitting in with someone else and started attracting a local following. Broadening her horizons, Colvin put a band together that featured Dennis Conroy (formerly with the popular Chicago band The Cryan’ Shames), Jack O’Boyle on guitar and Brian Sandstrom on bass. For six months they expanded their base throughout Illinois. But Colvin’s personal demons coupled with drug and alcohol use curtailed the success they were having. Her next shot came with the Dixie Diesels, a Carbondale country-swing outfit. They were short a girl singer and she jumped at the opportunity. The band had decided if they were going to make it, Carbondale was not the place and planned to relocate to Austin. This was Colvin’s ticket out of that charmless city. She then entered “the folk circuit in and Berkeley”, California before straining her vocal cords and taking a sabbatical at the age of 24.
On October 25, 2019, Colvin was inducted into the Austin City Limits Hall of Fame.

In 2006, Colvin left Columbia Records and released a 15-song album called These Four Walls on her new label, Nonesuch Records, which featured contributions by Patti Griffin and Teddy Thompson. In 2009 she released Live, which was recorded at the jazz club Yoshi’s in San Francisco, California.

In 1996, Colvin released her album A Few Small Repairs and in 1997 the success of her single “Sunny Came Home” catapulted her into the mainstream after spending four weeks at the number one spot on the Adult Contemporary chart. The song won the 1998 Grammy Awards for both Song and Record of the Year. Colvin released the album Holiday Songs and Lullabies in 1998 and in 2001 released another album called Whole New You. In 2004, she released a compilation of past songs called, Polaroids: A Greatest Hits Collection.
