Best Solo Act • Best Album • Best Song
Best Folk Act • Best Female Vocalist
Apologies to the many musicians forced to square off against Sarah Jaffe in this year’s Dallas Observer Music Awards ballot. Guess we shoulda seen this coming, but you never really stood a chance.
With this year’s sweep of the five categories in which she earned a nomination, Jaffe’s dominance over these awards stands as the big story of not just this year, but of the past three. Indeed: The five trophies she’s earned in this year’s awards, added to her three wins apiece in 2009 and 2008 (both years, she earned honors in the Best Folk Act, Best Solo Act and Best Female Vocalist categories) not only give Jaffe a whopping 11 awards over that time span, but they also show her as an unfathomable wrecking crew. For three years running now, Jaffe’s walked away with a trophy in every single category for which she’s been nominated.
Uh-huh: North Texas sure loves it some Jaffe.
