Sarah Jaffe announces fall tour dates
Tour will end up at Granada in Dallas on September 11.
Sarah Jaffe — Clementine
Sarah Jaffe is thrilled to announce new U.S. dates in support of her debut long player Suburban Nature after three successful tours as main support for Midlake, Norah Jones, and Lou Barlow. This 24-year-old Texan and her guitar will continue to wow audiences every night on her upcoming tour. She's had an amazing response from the press and fans on the release of her debut album Suburban Nature -- out now on Kirtland Records.
"Suburban Nature, her full-length debut, announces the Denton musician's arrival as a force on the folk-pop scene in a big way, offering up 13 gems that could make even a hardened critic start throwing around terms like 'the next big thing.'" - American Songwriter
"It's worth noting that the Texas singer-guitarist reveals more intelligence and thoughtfulness than most mellow songwriters. 'Before You Go' starts out as an acoustic campfire tune, until the drums kick in and her soaring vocals take on an eerie aspect." - LA Weekly
Produced by John Congleton (Shearwater, Polyphonic Spree, Explosions In the Sky) who also produced her debut EP -- Even Born Again, the new album showcases Sarah's incredible talent as a songwriter and musician. The music is dark and haunting and the songs and lyrics belie her age. In addition, Kirtland Records will be taking the first single of the album, "Clementine," to commercial radio in August.
Jaffe's live performances are filled with hints of country, indie-pop, blues, and folk intertwined with a delivery that has been described as slightly mesmerizing. She can silence a room with the heaviness of her music and then joke with the audience following the last note, warming her way into people's hearts and psyches after slaying them with her songs and lyrics.
