Q

Hey! Weird question, but what was the font of the header "SVE" you used in your letter to your fans that was delivered with your Tramp vinyl?


Sharon Van Etten responded on 02/08/2014
A

I actually don't know! I'm sorry! Daniel Murphy at Jagjaguwar helped me with layout and chose it and I thought it was perfect. He mirrored it to the John Cale record 'Fear' if that helps at all...

Q

Which are the major influences in the new album?

Glass Candy, Sade, William Baines...

Hi Sharon:

No question; just wanted to say hello and thanks for inviting me to your fan list. Stephanie and Allison are both out of the house, with Stephanie finishing up college at Grinnell College in May, while Allison is in Asheville, North Carolina.

I look forward to the new album and the next time you visit D.C. Until then, take care.

Heart,

Kevin (aka Rock 'n' Roll Dad)

Q

Hey Sharon, stop by the Green Frog Music Tavern in Bellingham, WA when you're touring on a dead night between Seattle and Vancouver. It's a great spot, you'd kill there. Plus, it's a great bar that cares about music.
Anyway, can't wait for the new stuff. Finally, what's your favorite place to drink in Brooklyn?
Bye thanks
KJ

Good to know! Thank you! We usually have to bust our butts to get from one city to the next. The west coast is rough for drives... you know? My favorite spot to drink in Brooklyn ... hmmm... Hotel Delmano in Williamsburg for cocktails, Syndicato for tequila or micheladas, Sycamore in Ditmas Park for crazy whiskey selection...

Q

I am not awesome. I don't know. Who are you and where are you? Thank you for listening!
