Praise for Sharon Van Etten

“Focusing mostly on new material, SVE’s syrupy pipes filled the room just like you’d expect them to. Her impeccable, folk-spun melodies were executed with precision and passion. The thing that’s so incredible about Van Etten, is how she’s able to meld harsh and gentle together so seamlessly. At its core, her music is angry, but a gentle approach to that anger yields undeniably gorgeous results. Her lyrics are bitterly heartbreaking, her strums occasionally crass, her energy genuinely raw and powerful. But there’s a sort of delicate beauty to it all.” Consequence of Sound

As I watched her burn through a driving version of ‘Don’t Do It,’ a highlight from her 2010 album, epic, I was struck by how much more self-assured and professional she sounded than when I’d seen her at Bottom of the Hill just a year prior. In fact, the whole show seemed like a snapshot of a songwriter who is just beginning to feel comfortable in her own skin – which made me even more excited to see where she goes from here.” SF Bay Guardian

“Sharon Van Etten is not a diva. Walking on stage at the Bluebird last night, as unassumingly as if she were in the grocery store produce aisle, Van Etten appeared confident and casual. There was no pretense about her or her band, a four-piece that featured two multi-instrumentalists and a drummer. The singer’s presence was totally unremarkable. This all changed soon after, though. Strumming a Fender Jazzmaster and accompanied by a harmonium, Van Etten let out a husky wail that soon silenced an otherwise chatty crowd.” Westword
