It seems as if Sharon Van Etten keeps getting better and better with each new release. Having struggled with gaining confidence as a songwriter at the beginning of her career, Sharon now seems to have the assurance and skill of a musician twice her age. Watching her artistic growth from Epic through Tramp and to her latest album Are We There has been nothing short of remarkable. Her songs have even more power in a live setting, where the really awe-inspiring qualities of her voice can be heard. Chicago fans will get a chance to hear what we’re talking about when she comes to Thalia Hall with special guests Tiny Ruins.
