Sharon Van Etten
In our age of internet terribleness of trying to stay cool and ahead of the trends, it's easy for us to cast quick judgement on singer-songwriters for being "harpy" or #emo, but Sharon Van Etten breaks the mold. Her latest album Are We There is one of honesty and frustration—a beautifully tragic portrait of the heartbreaking challenges we face every day within our relationships. She understands the essence of being human—what that means, and how we can deal with that. Being a human being is really hard sometimes. She gets it. And it's okay.
