"Songwriter Sharon van Etan. You've been taking classes to get your undergrad degree in psychology as I understand it the plan is to be a mental health. Counselor is that right. Yes I still have some time to go. I'm hoping to go once. I become a an official California resident at a local community college. Just to finish my Undergrad. But I my long term goal is to have some certification by the time I'm fifty. I think I'm almost a junior in standing so you're in music music. And the arts now. Your plan is to become a mental health counselor. There's a mean joke. I could tell about how those two directly connected to your imagination. How's it been going so far in terms of advancing your education while working in the arts and entertainment? I am reading a lot while I'm on the road. Because is your you know. There's so much in transit and and sedentary time I don't get to read that much or do research when I'm home so much because I'm very hands on with my son He will be starting school soon. So that will open up some quote unquote downtime for me. But I Yeah I'm constantly reading eating con constantly trying to find the right program for me and in the meantime I just I. I'm probably going to have to take biology again and I. I'm going to have take us to districts class and I'm taking a lot of one on ones which I think good to remind myself that I ha- how to be a student again because I'm still learning got to be a student but I'm I'm looking forward to getting into a program soon. Why Mental Health Counseling? Well I I I feel like over the course of ten years that I've found writing music my form of therapy and learning how to communicate my. My emotions has been very hard for me and meeting people along the way to make that possible has made me a better person and while performing my songs in meeting fans I've met young men and women not just young even met men and women along the way that have had a hard time communicating their your feelings and somehow connect to my music and that helps them being able to communicate their motions and I've heard her personal stories that make me wish I could. It'd be in touch with them on a regular basis because there's some people that I've met that I care about very deeply and I know the fan and musician relationship can there's a gray area there with how close you can get two people sometimes but it made me realize that I was interested in having more one on one relationships with people that I wish I could help and now I felt like I wasn't certified and I. I will openly admit that I don't know I don't really know how to help people but I want to help people and this is something in my control that if I educate myself I will be able to help people on a more personal level you interact with a lot with your listeners especially when they tell you that your songs things you know prompted Tharcisse made them cry health and through something difficult about a month ago you posted a fans story on twitter and you wrote quote thank thank you for reaching out to me. It's stories like this that helped me feel. My work isn't selfish and that there is mutating beyond my own healing sending love and strength to you unquote. What do you really feel that your work is selfish? Why have my moments you know? I'm a human being and I there. There are moments on stage where I'm standing there wondering why people are listening and you know everybody look at me. This is what I I mean I know no. It sounds silly. I write songs for me. I'm performing because people WANNA see me play but I I have those moments to of wondering is it is what I do. Is that important because everybody does something important. And I feel like I could be doing pulling something much more important a much more hands on and see that kind of help that I could be giving people I don't I don't know you shout to the ether. These days with music. You know you don't know who it reaches is and y speaking of the changes that your life has been going through this this mini documentary departure. Which is about your last days in New York? What what brought that project on? Well it was definitely developed over time as we were collaborating with Amazon but we I knew that I wanted to do a duet and a new. How much seventeen meant to me? And when when Nora said that she wanted to be part of our show are are goodbye. Show at Webster Hall in New York I knew that I wanted to document it and so to have someone that had been has been going through something very similar. The that knows what the next five to ten years years of my life are GonNa look like basically for someone that I admired growing up and someone I feel like a lot of ways has been with me through this whole journey any event a lot that she wanted to be a part of it so I wanted to document this big part of my life because yes. It's not just the goodbye to New York. It's it's the Hello to a new chapter. It's opening a new door and it's opening a new door with a a new circle of friends and this part of my life with my family and I I think I'll look back on this ten years and still cry watching it while I get the sense that you really really want to lean into family motherhood taking care of your son you had an interview with. NPR this year where you said that you were in in your words aching for your son already and at the time he wasn't even two years old yet what you mean by that well. I know all the mistakes that I've made and even though my family's amazing my parents are the most beautiful people in the world. They're angels you still have your own struggles struggles you know. I think about him going starting school I think about his first fight with a friend that first bad grade the first time. He doesn't make a team. You know things like that that I I project him to the future about his his pain and and hoping that I'm the kind of parent that he'll WanNa talk to do. Because I knew I had moments when I was a kid where I felt like I couldn't talk to anybody and that I really let everybody down if I didn't do something perfect and I hope that we're the kind of parents that he knows. That's not what it is and that everything's GonNa be okay no matter what and that he can talk to spend anything and now you've got music that helps other teenagers and other young adults feel seen and helps them process their feelings. That's gotta be the a good feeling by itself absolutely you know and I just want to do more and more and I and I hope that my son doesn't rebel against the things and doing doing now. He's GonNa have course do is that's what Sir job absolutely. It's a right of passage exactly no matter. How Oh cool you are he? He's just GONNA rebel by being milquetoasts. That's just the way to go. What's next for you? What's on the horizon? You've moved to allay any other the big projects that we should keep an eye out for. Well I am getting my studio already So I can start doing more work at home and doing more score work and hopefully writing more music and collaborating with other people and you know working on figuring out what the next tour is going to be like for me and I'll I'll be playing as much as I can until I go to school next fall and just out of curiosity theoretically hypothetically if you could only do one or another if you could only do the mental health counselor track or arts and entertainment and performing. Which would you pick? That's a tough call. If I if I had to decide as of tomorrow then I would keep doing music. Because that's what I'm able to do right now is that what makes you the happiest right now. Yeah we'll music is what Sharon van Etten does very very well. Her latest album is called. Remind me tomorrow. And a short.

"Five year break between albums. What was your creative process? This when did it change that five years. I guess the creative creative process was the same except that I had to fit it in little pockets of time because I I went to school and I had a child and it's harder order to find long periods of time where you can sit alone and relax and unwind so I had moments where I wrote when when I was pregnant and then I had moments that I wrote after I had my child with headphones on and it was still very internal introspective but with very different state of mind because I was in a much more positive place I had time to reflect on what I had been through but also at the same time I was pregnant in November when trump got elected president and I was trying to think of ways to be positive so that I didn't I was trying not to cry so I would not let my child absorb those negative feelings during that time. How have you managed to work that balance balance? How do you get it all done or do you even try to get it all done certain things you just have to kind of accept might have to fall by the wayside from time to time? I think we're constantly constantly figuring out and I'm totally at peace with it being a constant struggle and constant goal so I am in prioritizing my time. The Google calendar is very helpful. Mapping out the things that we need to do because my partner works as well so we're constantly blocking in time off to do specific things whether it be for work or family or whatever. It made sure. Calendars are a godsend for exactly. So that's just a that's just the beginning of it and you know we just relocated to Los Angeles and we're about to start a whole new life so maybe we need to start a whole new calendar well and also your music is very personal. Very emotional I imagine that other than just doing all the things on your calendar just the energy of performing can get draining. I know sometime. I'm I'm not a musician by any stretch but just sometimes if I have a long day of talking into a microphone by the time I get home I am brain dead absolutely. I mean you know we both do things that we care about very deeply and even when things things are going well and you had a great day and everything's positive it's still emotionally draining and I thank goodness that I'm very grateful that my band is so amazing and understanding and that my family is so supportive and I feel like I have a great support system whenever I need to fall back on somebody. I think that's so important in life in general but I I definitely what I'm about to finish tour right now and we've been torn for about a year and it's been great and fairly successful in in my world but I am so ready to just be home and nest and be home and settle settle for a minute. We're speaking to Sharon van etten about her music career next. We'll speak with her about going back to school to get her.

"It's your love is killing me off for two thousand fourteen album are we there. Tell us about writing that song which is songwriting process. Well usually when I'm going through a hard time I need to process things internally before I'm able to talk to other people about it so I'll usually shut the door and play guitar and try to to get it out in a creative where it's part of my just emotional process and I'll sing stream of consciously and let myself save things. I have no idea what I'm saying but it's more melodic and it's more about Chord progressions and more about the mood and I'll hit record for about ten. Sometimes twenty minutes nets hit stop and then put it in a folder. And I won't listen to it for awhile. Maybe like weeks months and then when I'm ready you to listen back to it with a little bit of perspective I'll listen to what it was. I was saying and try to edit lyrics that way and try to understand. Stand what I was going through to be able to find the lyrics that are more true in outside of the emotion and more from outsider perspective. There's also the quality of your voice. Jason Green. Who's a writer for? PITCHFORK describes it as a howl and he writes quote it is frankly knee buckling the ability of human voice to induce. This weakness is one of the most profound and mysterious things. Music can do unquote. How did you build your vocal sound? And I don't know if you describe it as a howl but how did you develop that sound. Well you know over the years it's changed you know from My teenage years where I was in musicals and I was in choir but I started writing my own songs and a lot of times as I just have a icefield. Tear tearful One whether it's a happy song or a darker song I actually feel it very deeply and I'm on the verge of tears most at the time I'm singing and I still learning how to understand what that is. What do you think that is well? It's a combination of what I'm singing about whether or not I. Yeah no at the time because when I'm writing when I start writing something I don't know what it is. I'm writing about most of the time. And then when I'm performing the songs live it's either because I'm connecting with someone in the audience or I go back to that moment or sometimes. I have moments of connecting the dots that I didn't before and what it means to me now because the song I wrote in two thousand fourteen means something much different to be now than a did then listless into another one of your songs. This is from your latest album. Remind me tomorrow I understand. The OBAMAS picked it for their summer. playlist way to go. This track called Serpentine shoe soon. It be artist at seventeen gene from your latest album. Remind me tomorrow. You took a five year break between albums. What was your creative process? This when did it change that five years. I guess the creative creative process was the same except that I had to fit it in.

"This is one A. Hey I'm Joshua Johnson. Sharon van Etten has been very very busy. She released her own homemade albums until until two thousand nine then burst onto the indie scene with the album or are we there in twenty fourteen that gained her critical acclaim and an Avid Fan base ace but then she became a mother started acting what back to college with the goal of becoming a mental health counselor ooh five years passed between there and her latest album remind me tomorrow which came out this year a short documentary about her was released released last week called departure and she joins us to discuss the many things going on in her work and in her life Sharon van etten welcome to one A. Thanks so much for having the let's dive right into your music and start with a track from your twenty fourteen album. This is called. Your love is killing me uh-huh it. It's your love is killing me. Offer twenty fourteen thirteen album are we there. Tell us about writing that song. What's your song writing process like well. Usually when I'm going through a hard time I need to process assess things internally before I'm able to talk to other people about it so I'll usually shut the door and play guitar. Learn try to to get it out in a creative way. It's part of my just emotional process and I'll sing extreme of consciously and let myself say things I have no idea what I'm saying but it's more melodic and it's more about Chord progressions and more about the mood and I'll hit record for about ten sometimes twenty minutes hit stop and then put it in a folder and I won't listen to it for a while. Maybe like weeks months and then when I'm ready to listen back to. It was a little bit of perspective. I'll listen to what it was. I was saying being and try to edit lyrics that way and try to understand what I was going through to be able to find the lyrics that are more true and outside of the emotion and more far from outsider perspective. There's also the quality of your voice Jason Green. WHO's a writer for pitchfork describes it as a Howl howl and he writes quote? It is frankly knee. Buckling the ability of human voice to induce this weakness is one of the most profound and mysterious things. Things music can do unquote. How did you build your vocal sound and I don't know if you describe it as a howl. But how did you develop that sound well. Well you know over the years. It's changed you know from my teenage years where I was and musicals and I was in choir but I started writing writing my own songs and a lot of times I just have a I feel tear tearful one whether it's a happy song or darker song. I actually feel it very deeply and I'm on the verge of tears most of the time I'm singing and I a stilling learning how to understand what that is. What do you think that is well. It's a combination nation of what I'm singing about. Whether or not I know at the time because when I'm writing when I first started writing something I don't know what it is. I'm writing about most of the time and then when I'm performing the songs live it's either because I'm connecting with someone in the audience or go back to that moment or sometimes sometimes I have moments of connecting the dots that I didn't before and what it means to me now because the song I wrote in two thousand fourteen means something much different to be now than it did then. Let's listen to another one of your songs. This is from your latest album. Remind me tomorrow I understand. The OBAMAS picked it for. There's some are playlist way to go. This track called seventeen shoe. See constantly at seventeen from your latest album. Remind me tomorrow. You took a five year break between albums. What was your creative. If process with this one did it change in that five years I guess the creative process was the same except that I had to fit it in little pockets of time because I I went to school will and I had a child and it's harder to find long periods of time where you can sit alone and relax and unwind so oh I had moments where I wrote when I was pregnant and then I had moments that I wrote after I had my child with headphones on and it was still very internal and introspective but with very different state of mind because I was in a much more positive place I had time to reflect on what had been through but also at the same time I was pregnant in November when trump got elected president and I was trying to think of ways as to be positive so that I didn't I was trying not to cry so I would not let my child absorb those negative feelings during during that time. How have you managed to work that balance. How do you get it all done or do you even try to get it all done. Certain things you just have to kind of accept might have to fall by the wayside from time to time I think we're constantly figuring out and I'm totally at peace with it being a constant struggle goal and a constant goal so I am prioritizing my time.

Why Sad People Listen to Sad Music

"Does sad people listen to said music research suggests the answer may depend on whether you're clinically depressed or you're just garden variety sad. Here's how to decide what to put on your playlist. The next time you're feeling down for people who are sad about something like a break-up, but who are not suffering from chronic depression. A sad song, Ken. Provide some catharsis according to researcher at Sandra Garrido, some people enjoy the emotional journey that comes about from us, add song while others may use a sad song in order to work through their feelings and make sense. If there's and maybe find an emotional release that will help them have a good cry and move on with their lives. But there's another concept that could help explain some people's love for sad music, and it's called benign masochism. That's the tendency for people to enjoy the experience of something that would otherwise be unpleasant. But because they know it safe. They can enjoy the thrill. It's a principle that could explain why people love scary movies rollercoasters, and according to research sad music, while it may temporarily be upsetting. They know it's a safe journey to take that being said it may not always be safe to listen to sad music is specially if you've been diagnosed with clinical depression, that's because instead of causing catharsis. Some research suggests it could actually help sad people ruminate on their own sadness, which makes them sadder that could create a vicious cycle of sadness, which is no good. Other researchers disagree with this idea, though. And it's twenty nineteen studies suggested that depressed people found the sad music calming, soothing or relaxing, and actually reported feeling happier after listening to it. So the reason why people are drawn to sad music does tend to vary. It could be benign masochism or a way to work through your emotions in the end the best advice may be to pay attention to your own feelings. If said music, makes you sadder you may wanna listen to less of it. If it helps you work through your sadness crank up the volume and have a good cry. We won't judge what's it go to sad song, whenever I'm kinda down? I love just listening to Sharon van Etten. It's very soothing. It's kinda sad. I love it. And I there's a track from the game of thrones season, six soundtrack. Jack called light of the seven so cathartic. It's almost ten minutes long. It sounds Spotify. I listen to that one, I'm happy, but also wanna miss add, you've had a fascinating tasted music.

"She plays bass, and we're about to have like a writing session together, but they can be very awkward. It's a blind date and everybody hopes that something happens. So the day before I wrote her, and I just said, hey, I had this rough idea for a song I recorded it, kind of more Lucinda Williams style actually was more of a country urge when it started, and I had very vague versus but the chorus is were pretty much there. And I said as an assignment, why don't you try to think of how you connect with the song and will finish it together. So she came I had all the instrumentation recorded. We finish the lyrics together. Then I made her performance. And so the the demos song that the producer John Congleton heard as my friend Kate Davis singing at and that demo version is called seventeen case. And so she's younger than me. She's experiencing New York in this way that I just remember, and like I would get teary eyed like watching her talk about music, I feel like that was a big part of the narrative beyond my own personal experience with gentrification. It was also kind of looking at what I was while also building this friendship with the songwriter that I admired and I- continuing to seek row as artists on right? And did you feel like the song was special? That's definitely a song didn't want it to Sapir, and I'm used to having songs that are right for myself, and I'll never share within. But even when it didn't fit with the the sense Centric demos that I had. There was something about that song. I couldn't let go of even though it kind of lived in the country universe for a while. As soon as we decided with the overall sonic pilot was going to be for the record. It made me realize that the Bruce Springsteen loose new Williams meets suicide there is. Common ground there.

"Then he asked me to sing unison on then he took out his vocal and used it. Got played. To glow. Does he? I guess my serious question about the synthesizers. It would have been so easy to be reductionist. This is Sharon van Etten electron IQ album. Right. But it's not it seems really organic and that you just decided to explore some different texture, and I literally just plug Jupiter into my pedal board that I would normally plug my guitar into. And with nobody watching me to judge me because it's some people would cringe on that. That are purists, but it was really fun to explore it and figure out what it did. I didn't know was he decided it's really fun. Check it out and and without having a preconceived notion. I I found the sound that I really loved as not capture other than record it, and I just came up with the riff for Jupiter for and sang over it immediately. I wouldn't forget it. I haven't been able to recreate that same sound from that demo, but John Congleton came pretty darn close. And. And when I played that demo for people that got really excited about where I was going my sound. Here's Sharon van in performing Jupiter for live at tally hall on sound opinions. Skips. That's Jupiter for from Sharon van Etten, Charlie Danske on guitar keys, Devin Hoff on bass whore. Hey, Baldy on drums, and Heather woods Broderick on keys vocals at talion hole. In Chicago, you you wrote a song seventeen that I think a lot of people talking about. It's kinda like the song. You know? It's like the one. Wow. This is another level for you. Shoot. Did you feel like that? When you wrote that song first of all, and and Secondly, you know, that conversation between Sharon van today, and with Sharon Bennett, and when she was a teenager the question that always comes up when I mentioned that song people is like who do you think got the better of that argument? I don't think it's an argument. But anyway, I wish you would explain a little bit more about how that's came to be argument. But you know. There are times. Look back at yourself. You wanna hug yourself? There's times that you think you know, better. I mean, then or now, but at the end of the day. You are who you are all the things that you've been through in your life. And so you have to be at peace, but that at some level. Talking to you at seventeen there's levels. Right. Okay. So when I first when I first had the idea I caught myself walking through a neighborhood where one of the places I used to hang out at was something else. Suddenly, and I caught myself being that old townie that was bitching about. Ginger. But I remember when I first moved to New York, and a friend of mine was showing me what Williamsburg was about fifteen years ago. And that was like the first year, I moved there. And I remember he was trying to say something like, you know, throughout time civilizations rise in fall. And he likes set it in this meditative way where he was telling himself as much as he was telling me, and so every time something like that happens. I I do the same thing. And you know, even though I'm walking into neighborhood where younger kids are moving into a neighborhood. I can't afford anymore. That's just the way it is. And so I started writing down my. My meditations on life and change. And this has also around the time when I was trying to be home and learn how to be creative without touring, and I was introduced to this young songwriter. Kate Davis who was finding her voice. She's a great songwriter..

"But I think that when you find the right group of people around to support you you find the strength to leave eventually is that what propelled you into psychology and therapy. And when you're fifty. I mean, I guess what? I'm wondering is. If you don't see how sitting with somebody and providing therapy is the same thing you've done on your records. Because I think it is. Thank you. Thank you. I think over the years I've learned that just the writing processes therapy for me. But then sometimes the my darker days. I I get mad at myself that what I do is really selfish. And that I stand on the stage and demands everyone attention and my happiness revolves around how the show wind, and and how I well performed when I know that's not really what it is. Because on a good day. I look out in the audience. I see people there with me as people crying as people sing along as people making out. Go for it all about that in the workplace here wherever but I've seen therapists that have changed my life. That have helped me learn how to communicate when I didn't know how to talk about my feelings that encouraged me to keep writing and performing because they saw something in me before I did in that it made me feel better. And that I had a drive. I didn't I didn't know why. But I just had a drive to play. It wasn't for success. It was for connection. And I think as I met fans along the way also that I got worried about some of the fans that would tell me stories about what they had been through. And why they connected with my music, and I wanted to follow up with them. And I would worry about them that we didn't exchange information for me to check in. And then just you know, that's dangerous. But I, but I realized that there is a drive in meet to have more of a connection in a different way. I just need to be certified to do that. You open the record with you know. Statement. You know, I told you everything sitting at the bar told you everything. Toes? And and you have a lot of ways. I mean people I think connect with your music so much because they don't feel like you're holding anything back, obviously, that's real attribute. But at the same time, it leaves you incredibly vulnerable and the new one still has those same qualities. What do you make of it do feel like, you know, at the end of the day that this was this is a good thing or you feel like in some ways, you know, as we were talking about earlier getting up on stage and doing that every night and going through that hell. Was that worth it? I think I always say whenever I'm singing, I always have tears in the back of my throat, and I think. I thrive on that. But I'm also still learning how to write in a way where I can draw from my own experience and right in general enough way where I know that everyone can relate to it in their own way. And it's a constant balance of sharing myself with people that want to know what I'm doing. But then also, no, they're not alone. And. Just learning. How to connect with people. I nervous that its Volna Rable. I'm I know like what just what I do is vulnerable, regardless of how much I personally, and I I realize I signed up for that a long time ago. So I just.

Sharon, van Etten is a singer and songwriter who's put out five albums. She's also an actress she's in the oh, a and twin peaks her most recent album, remind me tomorrow came out in January twenty nineteen in this episode. Sharon breaks down a single from that album called seventeen. She shears the original demo she made with the songs co-writer Kate Davis in we'll hear from producer John Congleton who helped craft Sharon's new more electron expound. We've also got a new segment we're introducing for the first time called this is instrumental cystic around after the full song to hear the conversation. I had was Sharon about her current favorite instrument. But first, here's Sharon Veneta on how she made the song seventeen. My name is Sharon van Etten. When I started writing seventeen hours spending more time in New York and exploring other sides of being a creative person meeting with other writers and trying to collaborate on songs together, which I've never done before. Because I'm a solo writer, usually I like to be by myself and make mistakes when no one's looking. But as a writer, you get stuck sometimes, and I felt like to challenge myself as an artist and needed to work with other people to hear what they have to offer me because I wanted to learn I was just introduced to this song writer Kate Davis. And I liked her energy a lot, and we were about to be set up on a blind date, which those writing sessions can sometimes feel like I get nervous going into those sessions. So I usually have a tool to help get things started. If you don't really know somebody, and I had this idea for a song it came from walking around New York and walking by a place that I used to know as one thing and it turned into something else. And then he starts thinking about your time in where you're from. And how things have changed, and I just kind of spiraled into this idea center, a very meandering version of a demo of this idea and originally it was more of. A country kind of dirge. I tracked all the instruments on the demo very elementary style, drums and guitar and bass, and I had the choruses kinda set. But I didn't really know what I wanted to stay quite yet. So when she came we kind of walked through the song and talked about what it meant to her. And what it meant to me and finished writing the lyrics together. And then instead of me singing the song I had her perform the song for me. So she's saying the whole dental because I know how I perform I know my range, I know where I play it safe. And I wanted to see if there was something in there. I didn't hear before. When I was first started writing, it was more being bitter about the changes that I've seen because I've been in New York for fifteen years and seeing one of your favorite venues close or an old apartment being rundown. Zevulon was a music venue in Williamsburg, and the first place when I moved there that I hung out at regularly, and you knew that you're gonna run into one of your friends there. It was like a community center for the neighborhood. You know, I was really special spot, and it's restaurant now, and that is just the New York story, but Kate was arriving to the song with fresh eyes. And being the younger version of me in a weird way. She is bright eyed bushy tailed and excited about life. And she's newer to New York, the Niamh and hasn't seen the kinds of changes that I've seen and she sang. This one part with such intensity that changed what the song meant to me at that point. I

"Really. Yeah. Yeah. But at the same time, I think she's also, you know, a young millennial musician songwriter who kind of sees the only way to have lung Javadi as a career in this industry, and that that many people see sort of crumbling around them is to maybe get into that production world to really learn these skills and think of them as a job rather than this. You know? This calling from on high this romanticized thing I saw her as Amon thinking very deliberately about that. Even if it wasn't as romantic as just her and the banjo, so Linda in your piece, one of your secondary interviews talking about sharing men, which is a we're gonna talk about a little bit today. One of the things I was struck by is some of the backstory of your agenda chairman, and is like not that different. Sharon is older. She's in her mid thirties. She also worked music business jobs like she used to work at a bought a bang and. Oh, you know. It's funny as we're talking about Sharon van Etten. Just happened to walk in. Hey, it's show. Kaas Crawley pop music. Hey, it's me what a nice surprise. We were talking about Iran, and how weird that you just happen to appear. Bloody Mary, Bloody Mary. Yeah. Weird weird skill. But okay. It's going to be exhausting for the next couple of weeks. So what a what a nicer prize? Joe is here Joe even talking about Maggie Rogers. And we were just a matter. You know? We were just pivoting van that. And and now I have two people who interview chair of in its sure bounty about the of interviewers we were just talking about how Maggie Rajin chairman and kind of have some things in common. They're both sort of like, not quite insiders. But like music B's adjacent Maggie through school, and Sharon by working labels and things like that in. I guess it was the late two thousand the most successful music publicist of all time. There is something of the quasi professional about them. Yeah. I think they obviously maggie's occurs. Very young. But I think they take their careers and their emission seriously. They think about things like legacy and like are. And I think Sharon is particularly interesting because she both has a really successful music career. You know, as far as independent singer songwriters go, but she also sort of has her eyes and hands on a bunch of other things, which we get to she, you know, is studying to become a therapist. She has started acting. You know, she getting into comedy is. You know, she I think she knows. To be fair. I think. She knows that coming soon. Logic. Logic has a novel coming back. Yeah. Doing dramatic. We're have a special episode of podcast just doing a dramatic reading. The book is done. Seriously, Gaddis, Sharon, you know, she takes music very seriously, and it sort of grown in this really natural slow way. Like, I think she actually has the opposite problem of or she doesn't have the problem that Maggie Rogers had which is that like when it exploded right away really fast off of one song like Sharon has had like a much more gradual taking steps up like you get you get a song and shonda rhimes show. And that's like one thing. And then, you know, you end up in this commercial, and that's another thing and your doors, get bigger and you're opening sauce, get bigger, and I think like she's had a pretty a pretty gradual rise over. What is now like a decade-long career? Is that seem right to you Lindsey? Yeah. For sure. So let's listen to a Sharon veterans on from the new album out here on the same day. I think is Sharon called remind me tomorrow. Let's listen to seventeen. Shoot. Constantly. Dan. The. Flee?
