After witnessing Brooklyn’s Sharon Van Etten live last year, it was easy to be immediately entranced by the simplicity of her breathtaking vocals along with an acoustic guitar. In the same vein of DIY acts such as Jana Hunter, Sharon lays out her vulnerabilities, proving that fragility can only make the saddest of hearts grow stronger. Recently, she shared a stunning cover of Morrissey’s The More You Ignore Me, The Closer I Get, and on May 26 her beautiful debut, Because I Was in Love, will be released through Language of Stone Records.

About The Author

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter
