Looking for a strong female singer in the midst of auto-tune and pop music traps can be a difficult task. There are very few female singers that do not rely on computerization to enhance their voices and those who don’t are few and far between. If you look in the right place, you can find genuine female singers and one of those is rising stars is Sarah Jaffe.
Raised in Texas, Sarah Jaffe self-released her EP Even Born Again in 2008 to rave reviews and a growing fan base. Quickly after, she was signed to Kirtland Records and released her debut full-length album Suburban Nature in May of 2010 to even more acclaim. Her brutal honesty about life and everything we have to deal with it makes her album almost impossible to turn off. You find yourself relating to her words and the way her voice delivers them to you will break your heart and lift you up at the same time.
With another album, The Way Sound Leaves a Room EP, to be released this year, Sarah Jaffe will be playing the Bluebird Theater on May 26 and May 27, 2011 with fellow Texas band the Old 97’s. The May 26 show starts at 9:00 pm and the May 27 show starts at 10:00 pm. Both shows are 16+ and cost $24.
If Sarah Jaffe can sound breathtaking on her albums, you should probably go see what she can do live.
