Sharon Van Etten confirms first headlining tour

Sharon Van Etten wrapped up 2010 with a bow by appearing on more best-of and year-end lists than we could count, including those from SPIN, NPR’s All Song’s Considered, LA Times, Filter, Stereogum, Chicago Tribune, Washington Post, and so many more. And while the world was singing her praises, Sharon was just starting to record more intimately heart-wrenching songs in the Brooklyn garage-turned-studio of The National’s Aaron Dessner.

After touring relentlessly in the 2nd half of 2010, and ending the year on such a strong note, you’d think Sharon would give herself a little break, but nope, not our Sharon. She’s just keeping at it! She’s just confirmed her first headlining tour, playing select dates across the country in March and April, including SXSW, and she’s beginning the year straight off the bat with a sold-out hometown show at the Bowery Ballroom. After a few shows in the U.S. this month, she’ll travel to Europe and tour with The National, come home and give herself a nice week off, and then hit the road again! This week also finds Sharon as the iTunes Discovery Download. Do yourself a favor in 2011 and make plans now to check out a singer-songwriter who The Wall Street Journal has called “a major talent in bloom”…
