The Warhol welcomes Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter, Sharon Van Etten, along with her band, to the Carnegie Lecture Hall. Garnering much critical praise in her quick trajectory since releasing her solo debut album, “Because I Was in Love” on Drag City, her rather frank, confessional ballads, have been likened to artists such as Cat Power (Chan Marshall) and Edith Frost. Van Etten shifted to a full band approach, for her second release, “Epic” on Jagjaguwar Records, and her latest release, “Tramp”, produced by Aaron Dessner of the National. She has shared the stage recently with artists such as Neko Case, Bon Iver and José González.
