One listen to Del Water Gap, and you get the feeling that this is a seasoned musician that has been at it for years. His tremendous “In The Yard” is something that sounds light-years ahead of his 19 years of experience.
That’s because S. Holden Jaffe isn’t most 19-year-olds. He spent most of his senior year in high school recording and producing his debut EP in a closet at his school on upstate NY. His EP is a compilation of “songs inspired by romantic encounters and dimly lit rooms”.
“In The Yard” is a perfect example of just what he is capable of. This is stuff that rivals the likes of The Tallest Man On Earth, which is saying something.
