DEL WATER GAP – ” Alright “

A couple weeks ago, we got out of the city to shoot a live video of a new ditty called “Alright” for NPR’s Tiny Desk Contest. DEL WATER GAP was born in the fall of 2011 as the creative manifestation of upstate New York’s S. HOLDEN JAFFE, a self-proclaimed “song and dance man.”

After Self-producing DEL WATER GAP EP in a gentrified storage closet during the spring of 2012, Jaffe relocated to New York City’s East Village where, thanks to a week in Hurricane Sandy’s blacked out Lower Manhattan, he joined forces with bassist William Evans and drummer Charles Schlinkert to form the project’s live incarnation.

Evans, a true corn-fed Kansas boy, has a background in bass guitar and vocal performance with a concentration in opera. Schlinkert, hailing from just north of New York City, studied jazz drums and vibraphone before throwing away the brushes to concentrate on the more even-tempered musings of an alt folk trio.

The group currently lives and works out of Alphabet City, making a regular pilgrimage upstate to write and record in their man-cave studio.
