damien jurado and sharon van etten have been touring together for the last few weeks. tonight i’ll get to witness them together in boston at one of my favorite places to really see a show, the paradise. i think my mind may emotionally explode.

i’ve seen the two of them separately live on their own.  damien at maxwell’s in hoboken nj, and sharon at piano’s in new york city. both of them possess this unique beauty where they can spellbind the room and make everything go completely quiet and still, as everyone stands in complete awe at how beautiful a lyric or chord is heard.

damien jurado: nothing is the news

sharon van etten: serpents

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
