Say, Jaffe

As you might have read previously, I was privileged be in company for Sarah Jaffe‘s newest album-listening session last month. Jaffe is a 26-year-old singer-songwriter who hails over the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex in Texas. She has gotten a lot of hype over the years from all over the place, and now most recently including NPR, Vogue, and Marie Claire (What?! Awesome!).

In celebration of her album releasing today, The Body Wins, here is a short video of Jaffe singing “Sucker for Your Marketing.” The video is filmed on my iPhone 4s, so I apologize beforehand for any poor sound quality you might encounter.

Please support the album here or here. I prefer vinyl myself and can’t wait to get my hands on a copy. Jaffe also headlines at the Granada Theater in Dallas, TX on May 5th.

Private Session

Last night, I had the great opportunity to sit in on a small, private listening session with musician Sarah Jaffe. Jaffe played some of her past hits, recent favorites, and some new tracks off of her album The Body Wins (releasing April 24th). I have to say that this up & coming album is a step in a new and exciting direction. While listening, I found myself wanting to dance to one song and then being familiarly haunted by Jaffe’s voice and acoustics in another. The new music Jaffe is bringing to the table is evolved in a good way. I can’t wait for the album drop (and I will share more at that time)!

Look for The Body Wins this April and check out more on Jaffe, here as well as in the previous Random Hero post!
