Phoebe Snow, known for her song “Poetry Man,” died on Tuesday of complications from a stroke that she suffered last year. She was 60.
Snow suffered a stroke in January last year, when she had finished recording a collection of songs and was rehearsing with her band to perform weekly shows at a winery in New York.
Her manager Sue Cameron said in a statement, “Our treasured icon heroically fought for almost a year-and-a-half to come back, enduring bouts of blood clots, pneumonia and congestive heart failure … until her body finally could take it no more.”
Snow released 16 albums and was nominated for a best new artist Grammy Award in 1975.
Snow leave her sister, Julie Laub, her uncle Bob Laub and several cousins.
