Sharon Van Etten has become a force to be reckoned with within the world of Indie music over the last eight years, and it all began in 2009 with the release of her debut album Because I Was In Love. Sharon stopped by the show recently to discuss the album and the impact it’s had on her career since its release.

She opened up quite a bit about what her life was like around the making of the record and the different twists and turns of recording it, and talked about its new reissue as (it was) because i was in love. We also got into what her life has been like both personally and as an artist since then, what it’s like creating albums that are so honest and personal, and what her hopes are for her future projects as she sets out to create her next record.

We’re releasing a limited edition, remastered vinyl reissue of Sharon’s debut, now titled (it was) because i was in love, which you can buy at the Vinyl Me, Please store now.
