With an arresting vibrato and silky tone, Nicole Kiki Jaffe shares her intimate new single, ‘Holdout.’ Catch the LA songbird live at the Standard’s weekly series, Desert Nights, on December 11th.
Nicol Kiki Jaffe transmits pain into beauty and strength. She makes the terrible beautiful and the weak feel powerful. Through her emotive, transparent songwriting, her music carries hope and solace for anyone who listens. Jaffe’s latest release ‘Holdout’ chronicles her desire to escape “longing and getting lost in the rose-colored idea of someone.” Nicole continues, sharing that the song is “about realizing that unrequited love doesn’t serve you and you have to let go of that feeling, however intoxicating it may be.”
The L.A.-based artist has frequented local venues including the Virgil, Echo Park Rising, Chinatown Summernights, the Satellite, and SoFar. You can experience the magic live at Desert Nights on December 11th at the Standard in West Hollywood. Follow Nicole Kiki Jaffe via Instagram.
