Sharon Van Etten

Sharon Van Etten - FUV Live at Rockwood Music Hall - 2014

by Carmel Holt

“This is a song about Google Maps.” That is how New Yorker Sharon Van Etten introduced her new song, “I Love You But I’m Lost,” in her FUV Live performance at Rockwood Music Hall. Of course, the song is not at all about getting (or not getting) directions from Google, but like much of her fourth album, Are We There, it is about navigation: navigating a painful relationship, the struggle to balance career and love, and ultimately, trusting your own voice.

Rita Houston and the SXSW crew bumped into Sharon Van Etten at the Hotel San Jose on Thursday, unwinding after her big NPR Showcase at Stubb's on Wednesday  night.

They talk about the show ("It was really raw, really straightforward"), and what it's like to perform such emotionally intense songs in front of an audience ("everyone there was happy to be there, and we all felt it onstage").
