Singer, songwriter Sarah Jaffe released her long-awaited fourth full-length album, Bad Baby, earlier this summer. The record is a big change of pace from her last album, Don’t Disconnect, in 2014. The Dallas singer isn’t going in a different direction, though; she’s just moving forward.
“I think it’s just growing up, this is what I do full time now. If I’m lucky and I’m working at it then I’m getting better,” says Jaffe.
Since releasing her debut EP in 2008, the 31-year-old has consistently surprised and impressed listeners with each new record. In less than a decade, Jaffe has toured with artists such as Norah Jones, appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live, and contributed vocals to an Eminem song.
Bad Baby has been largely regarded as Jaffe’s strongest work yet. The Red Oak, Texas native took a new approach to making the album. Stuck in a creative rut, Jaffe listened to a friend who told her to treat music like any other job.
