COUNTDOWN: 19 Days to Outside Lands — Sharon Van Etten

July 22. 2012 | By Collin Welbon

Sharon Van Etten @ Bumbershoot, Day 3

Golden Gate Park seems like the perfect setting for Sharon Van Etten’s celestial yet gritty voice, poetic lyrics, and folk-driven sound. With her summer tour kicking off soon and the release of her album, Tramp, in February 2012, Van Etten is exuding confidence while remaining true to her introspective lyrics and more melancholy songs. Although her brand of music may not have fans dancing ecstatically, she can captivate an audience, as her lyrical mastery and guitar playing make her an inescapable presence on stage.
