Jagjaguwar’s breathtaking Brooklyn songstress Sharon Van Etten’s comes to Brighton for her intimate debut show!
Van Etten’s much lauded latest record, Tramp, is sure to go down as one of 2012’s most beautiful, profound and fantastically crafted releases, and her live performances are every as bit as enigmatic. Produced by Aaron Dessner of The National, Tramp is a new creative high-point in an already remarkable career, and sees her collaborating with the likes of Jenn Wassner (Wye Oak), Zach Condon (Beirut) and Matt Barwick (Walkmen).
Also known for appearances on other artists’ releases, perhaps most notably The Antlers’ Hospice, Van Etten’s music is both her passion and an invaluable emotional outlet. With three full-lengths to draw upon she’s sure to produce something unforgettable in Brighton.
Don’t pass up this opportunity to witness one of modern music’s most singular and affecting talents in her element.
“If Epic was a hidden treasure, Tramp feels like Sharon Van Etten’s career-defining album. It’s a wonderful record, a colossal achievement, and features some of the most breathtaking, moving and downright beautiful music you’ll hear all year.” Drowned In Sound
“On her third outing, Van Etten has been Americana’s best-kept secret for some time. But the producerly hand of the National’s Aaron Dessner and cameos by the likes of Beirut’s Zach Condon only add to the conclusion that Tramp is one of the must-hears of early 2012.” The Guardian
