Sarah Jaffe Adds Electricity to Eclectic Folk

Texan singer-songwriter Sarah Jaffe’s musical roots are definitely folk. But with one album and one EP to her name — 2010’s “Suburban Nature” and “Even Born Again” (2008), respectively — 25-year-old Jaffe is already feeling a little restless. Although she feels most comfortable strumming her acoustic guitar, Jaffe has begun to test the electric waters, as the Dylan cliche goes. She’s learning bass guitar and she recently covered a song by Swedish electro-pop artist Robyn.

At a recent show in Washington, Jaffe easily traded instruments with her band-mates as they played songs ranging in style from folk to rock to pop.

Video was filmed by Kelly Chen and Lauren Knapp.
