Del Water Gap – In The Yard
Evocative vocals and driving instruments carry me along to a back porch or a public park bandstand with blue collar workers, families and the under and unemployed. We’re all looking for some joy and fellowship. Maybe finding some meaning to the mundane after a weary work week on a Saturday afternoon. You can just hear the audience singing along on these heartfelt songs.
Hailing from upstate New York, S. Holden Jaffe is a song and dance man. His solo project, Del Water Gap, launched in October of 2011 as a means by which to put music to words written over the last two years. His self-produced EP was released in May of 2012 as a compilation of songs inspired by romantic encounters and dimly lit rooms.
