Phoebe Snow, singer of the 1970s hit "Poetry Man," died Tuesday in Edison, NJ. She was 60 years old.

After being discovered at New York City's The Bitter End in 1972, the singer rose to fame with her Grammy-nominated 1974 self-titled album. She had suffered a brain hemorrhage in January 2010.

Though she continued to release albums, her early commercial success was never replicated. In the '90s, however, she made multiple appearances on the Howard Stern radio show, and in 2008, sang at Stern's wedding.

Her final album was 2008's Live.

In 1979, Snow appeared on Saturday Night Live, and sang with Linda Ronstadt:
