B.W.'s PLAYLIST/ KHSU, 90.5/ SAT., 25 DEC. 2010

Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter Sharon Van Etten has emerged as a "cut above" the vast sea of singer/songwriters. With her sophomore release, epic, Van Etten delivers an excellent folk/pop record, filled with poignant lyrics, beautifully executed and arranged. epic definitely would have made my "Top 10" had I had discovered this late 2010 release earlier. My apologies, Sharon...a terrific album.
