Sarah Jaffe is thrilled to announce a June tour with Lou Barlow before he returns to the road with Dinosaur Jr.! The 24-year-old Texas native will be main support for Barlow on nearly a month of dates starting on June 10th at San Diego’s esteemed venue The Casbah. This will be the third tour in 2010 for Sarah Jaffe who just wrapped tour dates as main support for Norah Jones and toured as main support for Midlake earlier this year. The Lou Barlow tour is her first US tour since the release of her debut full-length album – Suburban Nature – which came out May 18th on Kirtland Records.
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.
“…Suburban Nature, her full-length debut, announces the Denton, Texas-based 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
Jaffe has been turning heads with her memorable live performances over the past several years. Her performance at 2009’s Austin City Limits Festival earned her a nod from Rolling Stone and a live show at Stubb’s had the Austin Chronicle calling her “…a major new talent.” Now with a debut album set to come out later this month, a couple of noteworthy tours under her belt and a main support slot with the incredible Lou Barlow in June, Sarah Jaffe is poised to break on a national level – so catch her while you have the chance!
