New York-based singer/songwriter Sharon Van Etten is a musician who's unafraid of creating music that some people might perceive as being overtly personal. Her mellow folk and soft rock songs are comprised of slightly listless instrumentation, but her pensive lyrics are extremely astute and worth paying attention to. Van Etten released her debut LP, Because I Was In Love, in 2009, and in the short time since its release, she's received a significant amount of praise both from critics and the general listening public for her doleful yet extremely contemplative tunes.
