Interview with Ben Jaffe

We caught up with Ben Jaffe to see what he has been up to since we caught his show at the City Winery in Chicago last February.

Ben Jaffe  was one of the last performers we saw live last year prior to the Covid lockdown. He was opening for Jack Broadbent at the City Winery in Chicago and performed some of the new music he had been working on. We chatted with Ben after the show and discussed the fact that his new songs are connected by a narrative arc and that he was planning a multi-media show at the Hotel Cafe in LA during which he would perform them. Unfortunately, as time went on it became clear that was not going to be possible. As many musicians have, however, Ben adapted to the current climate and decided to bring the story of Bill. E to the masses by way of the Soothing Stream, his regular Sunday live-stream, multi-media production. 

As the year progressed, Jaffe’s creative urge was not going to allow him to sit around until it was time to come out of hibernation. Instead, he has been working on new music, scoring a movie, and collaborating with Suzanne Santo once again, resulting in honeyhoney’s podcast, Unmanageable, which is available if you support them on Patreon.

We caught up with Ben to discuss what he’s been up to since we last chatted with him, how he has adapted to the Covid world, and many other varied topics.
