Jamila Woods & Sarah Jaffe

5th Birthday

Jamila Woods & Sarah Jaffe

Posted by on Jun 1, 2018

The KUTX 5th Birthday Concert Series presents Jamila Woods and Sarah Jaffe, Saturday, July 14th at UT’s Hogg Memorial Auditorium.

Special Guest: TBA

Doors: 6pm / Show: 7pm

Reserved Seating: $45.00 and $35.00 in the Hogg Auditorium. Tickets are on sale now.

Jamila Woods: Jamila Woods’ cultural lineage – from her love of Lucille Clifton’s poetry to cherished letters from her grandmother to the infectious late 80s post-punk of The Cure – structure the progressive, delicate and minimalist soul of HEAVN, her debut solo album released in the summer of 2016 on Closed Sessions. “It’s like a collage process,” she says. “It’s very enjoyable to me to take something I love and mold it into something new.” A frequent guest vocalist in the hip-hop, jazz and soul world, Jamila has emerged as a once-in-a-generation voice on her soul-stirring debut.

Born and raised on the Southside of Chicago, Woods grew up in a family of music lovers. It took a surprise poetry class with a high school arts program for Jamila to finally find her metaphorical and literal voice. “Through poetry, I realized you are the expert of your own experience,” she says. Her poetry studies continued in college and in her professional career with Young Chicago Authors.

Sarah Jaffe: Sarah Jaffe was only twenty-two years old when her seasoned debut recording, Even Born Again, was released in 2008. Already a fixture in the fertile Denton, Texas musical landscape, her profile began to soar. Soon she was touring with artists as varied as Lou Barlow and Norah Jones, and was pushing her acoustic music into the electronic pop ether. Since then she’s had raves in Rolling Stone, made the rounds on the talk shows, collaborated with Eminem, placed her songs in a couple of films, and released a handful of absorbing albums and EPs. Her fourth and latest full-length, Bad Babylike each release that has preceded it, finds Jaffe again moving in creative new directions. There’s a dance-floor propulsion, and Jaffe is quick to credit the newly spacious feel to her layered pop to her many collaborators, including photographers and illustrators.
