Kirtland Records Set to Release 2010’s Breakout Artist Sarah Jaffe’s First Ever EP

Even Born Again was originally released in 2008 and only available through independent local record stores in her home state of Texas. Now the rest of the US will have their chance to listen to the earliest official recorded music from Jaffe.

Even Born Again, like Suburban Nature, was produced by John Congleton (Shearwater, Polyphonic Spree, Explosions In the Sky) and even with its initial limited distribution, the EP earned Sarah numerous accolades including a feature on NPR’s “Song of the Day” for the title track and awards at the 2008 Dallas Observer Music Awards: “Best Folk/Acoustic Act,” “Best Female Vocalist,” and “Best Solo Act.”

Independent Artist Zach Williams Offers Free Album Download

Folk rock artist, Zach Williams is giving fans and friends alike his album Story Time for free.

For fans of Mumford & Sons, Matthew Perryman and Brooke Fraser, Story Time continues to impress music listeners with Zach’s soulful and penetrating sound.

Zach Williams’ fan base has been growing rapidly, having to turn away over 200 people a few months ago when they opened the Rockwood Music Hall’s Stage 2 room. Along with selling out venues all over NYC, Zach was also recently involved in a recording project for RESTORE, an NYC based non-profit organization that provides long-term aftercare for international survivors of sex trafficking in the city.
