Sharon Van Etten Announces U.S. Tour

If your New Year’s Resolution is to finally see one of 2010’s most-loved singer/songwriters perform live, then you might be in luck! After touring Japan next month, Sharon Van Etten will embark on a six-city tour in January, followed by a string of highly-coveted international dates opening for The National.  She’ll bring along songs from her recently-released sophomore album epic (Ba Da Bing), as well as a few new gems that will steal your heart (though just to warn you, her songs might break your heart as well).  Don’t miss her this time around!

Just before Sharon launched her current tour opening for Junip, she visited the NPR offices to film a Tiny Desk Concert, which is now available online.  In this video, one witnesses a charming woman who grins humbly after each song before plunging into the next set of emotionally-charged lyrics.  And if she wasn’t busy enough, this week marks the release of I’m Giving Up On You (Polyvinyl), a 7” featuring two exclusive songs (which is sold out, but available on iTunes), plus you can find Sharon’s distinctive vocals on the forthcoming album from Brooklyn-based band Airwaves.
