ABOUT: SARAH JAFFE
Since her debut EP Even Born Again 2008, Sarah Jaffe’s endearingly stark narratives have gone from homespun folk-pop songs to decidedly cathartic pop ballads without losing any of their thoughtfulness or intimacy.
Her full length Suburban Nature introduced the artist to an international audience. The pace of her music shifted with the release of The Body Wins, Don’t Disconnect and her release, Bad Baby, but the delicacy has not: instrumentations now veer more towards electro-pop, but her storytelling and heartfelt lyricism is still every bit as cerebral. Jaffe’s newest release, SMUT, follows the July release of her companion EPs ‘This is Better Pt. 1’ & ‘This is Better Pt. ‘2, which ultimately saw Jaffe embrace the grieving process of an intense heartbreak. SMUT, on the other hand, was born from the newfound freedom, confidence, and self-exploration Jaffe found at the hands of being single. With stand-out tracks like “Small Talk” and “Important”, SMUT leans into more upbeat territories – the spatial and ambient electronics are ever-present, but the melodies, lyrics and instrumentation across the EP are uplifting and energized.
Jaffe’s voice has been featured in the Disney Pixar short The Blue Umbrella scored by Jon Brion. She can also be heard in the Occulus virtual reality short Dear Angelica and has composed music for Never Goin’ Back , which premiered January 2018 at Sundance. She’s toured the US and Europe multiple times, performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and shared the stage with Norah Jones, Patty Griffin, Erykah Badu, Metric, Chelsea Wolfe, Midlake, Blitzen Trapper and Cyndi Lauper.
Jaffe also has a writing partnership with hip-hop producer S1 (Beyoncé, Kanye West, Jay Z). The duo’s first collaboration, “Bad Guy” (on whose chorus Jaffe both wrote and sings), appears on Eminem’s Grammy Award winning MMLP2.
