Phoebe Snow suffers brain hemorrhage

Singer-songwriter was in intensive care Thursday

Singer Phoebe Snow suffered a brain hemorrhage at her home Tuesday and has undergone emergency surgery, her manager said.

Doctors for the Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter said that the surgery went well, and Snow was hospitalized Thursday in intensive care at an undisclosed location, manager Sue Cameron added.

"It is too early to assess any residual motor damage, and we are taking it day-by-day, but doctors are hopeful for a complete recovery," Cameron said.

Snow's "Poetry Man," released in 1975, was her first huge hit. The two-time Grammy Award nominee has released 16 albums; her most recent was "Phoebe Snow Live" in 2008.

Snow, 58, does about 50 concerts a year in the U.S., Cameron said.
