AON Sessions: Sharon Van Etten – One Day
Produced by Raul Zahir De Leon; Audio recorded and engineered by Miguel Lacsamana; 2nd Camera Jonathan Luna.  Watch more, here.


On tour in support of her second full length, ‘epic’, Sharon Van Etten has been traveling with an excellent backing band that has helped her translate the fuller sound of the new album to the stage. Last they were in town, we had the pleasure of sitting down with Sharon and vocalist Cat Martino to record stripped down versions of a couple of tunes from the album.  (via all our noise)
