Van Etten's dynamic vocal range is impressive as she mesmerizing audiences with her warm, angelic voice, and her lush harmonies have become a focal point of her live shows. Back on the road for a series of highly anticipated dates, Van Etten will treat fans to classics like "For You" alongside newer material like "Every Time the Sun Comes Up," the closing track from 2014's Are We There.
Sharon Van Etten got her start at a young age, singing in her New Jersey hometown's church choir and taking up violin, clarinet, and piano. Throughout high school she performed in a number of school groups, and in 2005 she moved to New York to pursue music full time. After years of penning songs and playing local gigs around Brooklyn's bar scene, Van Etten landed an opening spot on Meg Baird's 2008 tour, releasing her debut album Because I Was In Love a year later. Having established her harmonious new sound, Van Etten quickly followed up with epic (2010) and Tramp (2012), landing on tour with The National and The War On Drugs. NPR describes her music as " heartfelt without being overly earnest...and her elegant voice is wrapped in enough rasp and sorrow to keep from sounding too pure or confident," and it's this delicate balance that gives her unique music its edge. Back on the road in support of her 2014 release Are We There, Van Etten is set to give fans an experience they won't soon forget.
