Sharon Van Etten Essentials

Sharon Van Etten Essentials

Over the course of a critically acclaimed career, beginning with 2009's bare-bones debut, Because I Was in Love, Sharon Van Etten has evolved from a folk-tinged acoustic singer/songwriter into a grittier, more brooding artist. But two things have stayed the same: her moving, plangent vocals and her ability to combine acerbic wit with direct, heart-wrenching melancholy. The New Jersey-born musician, who cut her teeth touring with The National and Nick Cave, writes melodies that wrap themselves languidly around your brain, conjuring moods that linger long after the song is over.
