Wistful beauty

BostonBabe

This album is wonderful. Yes, it is about heartbreak but her delivery is pitch perfect. This is the voice that should duet with Caleb Followill of Kings of Leon.

Like warm Nutella

Won't be surprised at all when she conquers the world with that voice in the upcoming years.

If you've never been in love

BelovedMusic

Let Sharon be the first time you fall in love. Her unrequited themes breath taking voice and well constructed imagery are the reason this album has the buzz its got. Her song first came on Lastfm thanks to her connection with the antlers a year ago but that song for you compelled me to order the vinyl and it was impressive fantastic and one of the rare times I listen throughout. Sad music isn't so sad when its so good.

Sharon Van Etten Reclaims Herself

By Devon Maloney, Contributor

Sharon Van Etten is stuck in bed. "I went ice-skating yesterday for the first time in 20 years," the 33-year-old says with a little groan, supine in her petite West Village apartment. "We went to the rink at the Chelsea Pier, and I totally fell on my ass." Van Etten's got a list, you see. It's a bucket list, kind of — though maybe it's more like a between-tours, live-your-life sort of list. Earlier in the week,… more »

2012 Breakthrough: Sharon Van Etten

By Christina Lee, Contributor

[Rock history is full of albums that document breakups, but few of them are as ruthlessly recounted as the one that inspired Sharon Van Etten's devastating third album, Tramp. Beating her fretboard into a spear, Van Etten attacks the loutish ex-boyfriend who ridiculed her and undermined her self-confidence, fully exploring the rage and hurt and uncertainty that accompanies an abusive relationship. eMusic's Christina Lee talked with Van Etten in February about the album's origins.] "Basically my… more »

They Say All Music Guide

Intimacy reigns supreme on Sharon Van Etten’s debut, which finds the folksinger crooning her melodies over beds of acoustic guitar, keyboard, and overdubbed harmonies. Her lyrics are the stuff of heartbreak and uncertainty — “I wish I knew what to do with you” she laments during the first track, and later refers to herself as a lover’s “consolation prize” — but her performances are confident, both simple in their delivery and subtle in their emotional punch. Because I Was in Love isn’t a bare-boned folk album; rather, it’s the sort of record that unfolds its layers with repeated listens, and the arrangements are often gorgeously lush without threatening to overpower Van Etten’s alto. – Andrew Leahey
