News: Sharon Van Etten Earns The Flys ‘Album of the Year’

Sharon Van Etten has taken out The Fly’s ‘Album of the Year’ with her highly praised record ‘Tramp’ – released earlier this year on Jagjaguwar/Inertia.

Beating out the likes of Grimes, Frank Ocean and Cat Power it was Sharons layered harmonies , honest song writing and growing confidence that helped her track to the number one spot.

In an intimate interview with The Fly she shared some insight as to the title of the album revealing her constant ‘couch surfing’ at friends between live dates (although only once had to sleep in her car).

She will be playing over New Years at this years Falls Festival alongside Beach House in Marion and Lorne along with a string of other dates;
