Born in New Jersey, cultivated in Nashville and based in Brooklyn, Sharon Van Etten has garnered fans of both folk and country music. Hailed by NPR and the Nashville Scene for having one of the most original voices of late, Van Etten added her vocals to the Antlers' "Thirteen" off the acclaimed album Hospice, which was released a few months after her debut. With two notable albums under her belt, Van Etten spent 2011 recording her new album Tramp with the National’s Aaron Dessner.
