More Emotionally Direct Music On Sharon Van Etten’s Are We There?

Sharon Van Etten is something of an indie darling, given her raspy, elegant vocals and penchant for deeply confessional folk rock.

It seems that whoever crosses the path of Sharon Van Etten eventually falls under the spell of her songwriting and subtle magnetism. In addition to a growing fan base and critical appeal, fellow musicians have taken notice of the once independent singer-songwriter. Perhaps there’s no better example of such admiration than on Sharon’s new album Tramp. In addition to producer Aaron Dessner, a legion of notable indie-rockers helped make Tramp, one of the more confident and surprisingly engaging early releases of the year.

Three years ago a singer-songwriter from Brooklyn named Sharon Van Etten recorded the first Shaking Through session. The session would be the first step toward writing her second album.
