“Her songs emphasize the moment, both in the quality of her performance and in the rawness of her lyrics….Van Etten continues to write incisively about the volatility of love, with no loss of urgency or investment.”—Pitchfork

Rocked by rocky romance, singer Sharon Van Etten has continued to grow as a songwriter and performer since she made her local debut at the Wexner Center in 2011. Now touring in support of her latest release, Are We There, in this concert she will reveal new songs that plumb the messy depths of love with daring openness. As a Guardian (UK) reviewer said of her live performance, “Van Etten’s songs are stealthy creatures. They skulk through the dark, cry to the moon, lick their own wounds with fragile pride. When they attack, their emotion is pulverizing.” Managing the tricky territory of being confessional without being cloying, Van Etten employs atmospheric yet direct musical backing to tap into truths that resonate deeply with her listeners. Captivating singer/songwriter Hollie Fullbrook from New Zealand, who makes music under the moniker Tiny Ruins, will open the show with her intimate, evocative tunes.

Maggie Brennan has been with WCBE since she began as an intern in 1993. She’s passionate about sharing music from all over the world with our listeners and takes pride in showcasing a wide range of artists from here in central Ohio on her weekday music program.
