Editorial Reviews

Certain musicians are magic. Their voices prick up the ears of those far afield, melt the hearts of those within earshot and magnetize the attention of those souls fortunate enough to have a clear sightline. Sharon Van Etten is a singer and songwriter who trades in that caliber of mysticism. What her heart bleeds her songs soak in and offer up to those throats in need of slaking. This is what we expect from musicians who trade in the autobiographical. We hold forth empty vessels and expect them to be filled with the reflective elements of a songwriter's soul, mirrors within which we search for some small recognizable part of the self. Sharon's bane may be to feel too deeply, but her raw nerves, open heart and generous soul offer the rest of us a means to ease our own points of suffering. 11 tracks.

Biography

For all the attention that was paid to her 2012 break-through Tramp, Sharon Van Etten is an artist with a hunger to turn another corner and to delve deeper, writing from a place of honesty and vulnerability to create a bond with the listener that few contemporary musicians can match. Compelled by a restless spirit, Van Etten is continuously challenging herself. Now, the result is Are We There, ... Read more in Amazon's Sharon Van Etten Store

This is the first album I have ever reviewed.
Timothy Day
And then I began to figure out Sharon Van Etten -in interviews, video clips... So first I purchased album as mp3.
Fatih
Sad, frail, quavering music from a place so close to heartache that it threatened to tear me open as I listened.

We saw her at a nice small venue and it was amazing. It's very emotional. I was afraid the recording wouldn't have the same drive; it does. For singer/songwriter folks, this is gold.

Sharon used to work at a cafe I frequented. She was always very kind and sweet. So I think her music represents her niceness very well. Good luck Sharon and stay lovely!

This is the first album I have ever reviewed. First off, all of SVEs albums are really, really, good. But for me this one sticks out head and shoulders above the others. The songs touch some deep subconscious chord it me. Its almost inexplicable. Same Dreams and Keep are my two favorites, but all the songs are absolutely great. For the past 40 years, Joni Mitchell's Blue has been my all time favorite album, but this one is really close, and in some ways even better. A must have for anyone who wants their sole touched.

First I met that album in a blog with 'For you' track. And then I began to figure out Sharon Van Etten -in interviews, video clips... So first I purchased album as mp3. After that, I lay down my bed and listened to all album from the beginning. It reminded me a girl who lives in town where I live as a foreign student. So I decided to buy it to keep it, or if I saw that girl again and I met, may be simply I'd share it with her before going to my country for holiday.

Ms. Van Etten is a gifted and soulful folk singer and songwriter. I especially like the haunting "Much More than That." She has a bright and unlimited future.

It is impossible for me to write something here that would capture her art. For lovers of beautiful music, tragic love, and/or glorious failure, it cuts right through to where your soul would be if such things existed. You have the Internet. Use it wisely.

On a trip to NY a while ago, a friend brought me to the back room of a small Brooklyn venue and showed me this amazingly beautiful artist. Her melodies and lyrics stick with me, especially on tracks like "It's Not Like" and "Keep." It's great to have a more well-mastered recording than the home versions I've been listening to (and still quite enjoying.)
