is the follow up to her critically acclaimed debut full-length Suburban Nature which earned raves from New York Times, USA Today Pop Candy, Paste, and NPR among others.

As Jaffe gears up for the release of The Body Wins, she will be performing select dates across the US in February and March. She kicks things off on February 5th with Lucinda Williams, John Hiatt, Rhett Miller of the Old ‘97s, The Civil Wars and more on the Camayo Cruise. Shortly after, Jaffe will head up to NYC for a special show at the Mercury Lounge on February 22nd where she’ll be playing songs from The Body Wins. Then out to the West Coast where she joins up with Guthrie (Jay Farrar, Will Johnson, Jim James, and Anders Parker) for a handful of dates before heading back to Texas for this year’s SXSW.

It’s been nearly two years since Jaffe released her debut album Suburban Nature and these dates will give her a chance to play songs from The Body Wins live. A few songs on the new album were included in an earlier incarnation on the September 2011 CD/DVD release – The Way Sound Leaves a Room. However, expect the unexpected as Sarah has left her acoustic guitar behind (for the most part) and really developed the demos into riveting new songs which can all be found on the forthcoming album The Body Wins – out April 24th on Kirtland Records. Confirmed dates are below and visit for the most up to date information.
