“Not since Neko Case first came on the scene has there been a more plainly stunning, shockingly natural singing voice than Van Etten’s.”—Pop Matters

"Hauntingly beautiful and highly recommended."—Radio Free Chicago

"In a crowded field, she stands out as one of the most beguiling artists I've ever heard. Her songs are heartfelt without being overly earnest; her poetry is plainspoken but not overt, and her elegant voice is wrapped in enough rasp and sorrow to keep from sounding too pure or confident. It all soars but remains wonderfully rough around the edges. I don't want to overstate how much I love this record, but I do plan on being buried with it." npr.com

Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter Sharon Van Etten has won widespread acclaim for her achingly intimate voice and emotionally candid lyrics. With epic, her breakout second release, she’s also displayed a growing confidence backed by a full band. That release has been frequently named as one of the top albums -of-the-year and landed spots performing with the likes of Kyp Malone (TV on the Radio), The Antlers, Akron/Family and many others. She will be opening for The National, touring Europe this March.
