Phoebe Snow has died at the age of 60. She passed away yesterday from complications of a brain hemorrhage she received in January 2010.
Snow’s manager, Sue Cameron, said Snow had been experiencing health complications resulting from her stroke, which included blood clots, pneumonia and congestive heart failure.
"The loss of this unique and untouchable voice is incalculable," said Cameron. "Phoebe was one of the brightest, funniest and most talented singer-songwriters of all time and, more importantly, a magnificent mother to her late brain-damaged daughter, Valerie, for 31 years. Phoebe felt that was her greatest accomplishment,” according to Extra TV.
Snow's big break in the music world came after she was spotted a record producer at New York's Bitter End nightclub. Her first single, "Poetry Man," became a hit in 1975, and the LP, Phoebe Snow, went gold, according to People Magazine.
Snow was even nominated for the Best New Artist Grammy in 1975.
