With a chalky, semi-soulful croon, and stories that rummage through a range of stashed away emotions, Sharon Van Etten
began fanning the critical fires in her favor a little more than a year ago with the release of Because I Was In Love
...a bare and minimal batch of heartbreak that offered the Southern raised Brooklynite nowhere to hide. Out in front, exposed, bare, and unapologetic; these always seem the most admirable of qualities in musicians, making it oh-so-easy to fall for her acoustic grace.
