"I have a lot of songs that I want to record, and I want to keep as busy as possible," says Brooklyn singer/songwriter Sharon Van Etten, whose sophomore LP epic is earning universal praise from critics. With two albums released since 2009, and a third planned for 2011, Van Etten might be making up for lost time. The New Jersey native, who began writing songs in high school, took a career detour when she attended college in Tennessee to study music and recording. She dropped out of school after only a year and became involved in a destructive long-term relationship that undermined her confidence in songwriting and prevented her from performing. "There were some days where it was so bad that I never thought I'd be able to get out of that situation at all," she says. More

Sharon Van Etten's last album, Epic, was a way forward for her, both musically and psychologically. That album featured her first stab at warm, bristling full-band arrangements and a heavy dose of emotional bloodletting following a rather traumatic break-up (one of the ex's most egregious and repeated crimes was telling Van Etten she was a lousy songwriter/musician).
