We have posted about Sharon Van Etten quite a bit in the last couple of months. This is no coincidence. At nyctaper, we believe that Sharon is one of the most gifted performers we have encountered in quite some time. The exciting aspect is that her career is just beginning — she has lived in Brooklyn for about a year, her first CD has not been released (its expected soon), and she is currently on her first extensive tour.

We took the opportunity last week to experience Sharon in the venue where she began to make her name in NYC — the charming and intimate Zebulon in Williamsburg. As expected, when Sharon began her set the venue was packed, to the point that there were three rows of people sitting in front of the stage. On hand in support were three members of the Antlers, and we saw Kyp Malone from TV on the Radio when we were leaving.

For the recording, we were among the seated throng, and attached the right channel microphone to the front of the stage and the left channel in front of the PA left speaker. Only Sharon’s voice was amplified through the system as the guitar was amped on stage. As a result, our high clarity recording is vocal-heavy in the left channel and guitar-heavy in the right channel, and offers a unique perspective of this superb artist. Some guitar tech issues were edited in between songs. Enjoy!
