I wish I was a little more delicate…

Sarah Jaffe (rhymes with taffy) came into my world in December 2010, like an early Christmas gift from 91.9 WFPK.  Oh, WFPK, how could I ever repay you? What’s that? You say a yearly membership would be more than enough repayment? Done!! (Suppot your local station–contribute here.) 😉

Back to that wintery day when I was introduced to Sarah Jaffe as WFPK played “Clementine” from her newest release, Suburban Nature.  I was hooked immediately-her smooth, strong voice with striking lyrics and the right mix of instruments to back her up–it was too much to resist!

“Clementine”, official video

Sarah was slotted to play the first Waterfront Wednesday of the year on April 27, 2011, but foul weather and flooding moved the event to Headliners.  (Walk The Moon also played that show.)  Headliners was packed and I think Sarah was overwhelmed at the response of the crowd.  She even gushed about her love for Louisville on her facebook page that night after the show!

Sarah has been named as an up and coming artist by numerous music reviewers and she is on many lists as one not to miss at the infamous SXSW 2011 fest.  She was also featured on the NPR Daytrotter Session.  She is getting recognized for a good reason! “Clementine” isn’t the only good song on the CD-it’s all good, baby!!

“Vulnerable”, aka Sleeping Beauty, is a favorite at our house.  If you have a daughter or have spent any time around young girls, then you understand this.  Usually, I just grin and bear it whenever princesses are involved.  Seriously–why can’t my daughter be enthralled with a character that can stand on her own and doesn’t need to be rescued?! This infatuation shall pass…right?!?!

Anyway, I can’t complain about A loving “Vulnerable”…I love it, too!

Since this Denton, TX singer/songwriter doesn’t make it to Louisville often (although we have gotten her twice in 4 months!), make plans to attend Waterfront Wednesday tomorrow (Aug 31, 2011).  NOW!!  And if you can’t make it, look for her new release on Sept.27th.
