Sharon Van Etten

Spotlight show » Please go to this show. The Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter was so broke during the 14-month recording process of her most recent album "Tramp" that she was essentially homeless, crashing on friends’ couches and spending one night sleeping in her car. "You can’t afford New York rent when you have a band," Etten said in a phone interview. "You don’t make money in music. You just get by. It’s pretty in-your-face that you’re not going to make money." That kind of attitude has elevated her folk-influenced indie-rock to cult status, with fans that include Justin Vernon of Bon Iver and The National’s Aaron Dressner, who produced "Tramp." Her music lays bare her insecurities and anxiety. "I think people like my music because it’s vulnerable and then they can relate to that," the 31-year-old said. "I feel like I am not scared to show my music to other people."
