Friday Night: Sarah Jaffe At House Of Blues

Sarah Jaffe House of Blues Bronze Peacock Room April 15, 2011

According to singer/songwriter Sarah Jaffe's Twitter bio, she is the "first female in the world to ever play the acoustic guitar and sing her own songs."

Refreshingly, the Denton-based musician is clearly able to poke fun at her own profession, and for unfortunate but often due reason: acoustic songwriters are generally cast into an explicit and often limiting categorical pigeonhole.

Jaffe, a Dallas native, first made waves with her 2008 EP Even Born Again and released her debut full-length, Suburban Nature, last year, after signing with Kirtland Records. The album is a mostly acoustic collective exploring universal themes - love, loss, maturation, peril.
