Sharon Van Etten came to Brooklyn via Tennessee via Jersey. Along the way, she sang in choirs, rejected her school's music program, worked at an all-ages venue, trained as a sommelier and got a full time job at a record label. She also had a few bad experiences in relationships. More than a few. Her new album, Tramp, celebrates the unsteadiness of a life spent in flux. Lush and triumphant, the songwriting is assured and strident, incorporating vivid arrangements and instrumentation and showcasing an artist in full control of her powers.
