Eilen Jewell

Although her country-flavored and blues-infused version of contemporary folk (which also can include healthy doses of rockabilly and surf) has drawn comparisons to musicians like Lucinda Williams, Gillian Welch, Jolie Holland, and the Be Good Tanyas, Eilen Jewell's strongest influences have been the classic sides recorded by Bessie Smith and Billie Holiday (the latter artist is no doubt the source for Jewell's characteristic and surprisingly effective stretched, slowed, and even slurred vocal mannerisms). Born and raised in Boise, Idaho, Jewell began piano lessons at the age of seven and picked up the guitar when she was 14. She also fell under the powerful spell of Smith and Holiday (along with discovering other artists like Bob Dylan and Howlin' Wolf). While attending St. John's College in Santa Fe, she began playing the local farmers' markets and bars. She moved to Los Angeles, then relocated all the way across the country in early 2003 to western Massachusetts, and later in the year she moved to Boston, where she threw herself into the vigorous local music scene. She recorded a live demo album in 2005 called Nowhere in No Time and put out the self-released studio project Boundary Country a year later. The critical response to Boundary Country led to her signing with Signature Sounds, and Jewell's first national release, Letters from Sinners & Strangers, appeared from the imprint in 2007. A second album from Signature Sounds, Queen of the Minor Key, was released in 2011. The next few years were spent touring the U.S. and around the world, culminating in the 2014 live double-album Live at the Narrows. After relocating back to her hometown of Boise, Idaho, Jewell released her fifth album, 2015's Sundown Over Ghost Town. ~ Steve Leggett, Rovi

What, she went to St. John's College in Santa Fe?!? This world is too small, and I was just thinking about school while I was exiting the artist bio page and then my alma mater caught my eye! And they mention it for almost no reason. Degrees of separation: one.

To do a cover of Eric Andersens Dusty Box Car Wall won me over with this artist. Eric wrote some great music in the sixties and deserves some credit introducing the World to some really good folk music.

Caught her and band in Ann Arbor, MI this weekend. Two lines into her first song, could only think a female Dan Hicks with a twist. Loved it!

Hey R.T, Gillian Welsh can't rock and is easy to categorize, not so Eilen, she can do it all, she's in a league all her, have a good day.

What can i say, she's freakin' amazing, she became my favorite artist the first time i heard her, i own every album and have seen her live many times, she's one of those artists that come along once in a lifetime.
Report as inappropriate
If you've ever seen her live, you'll hear her music entirely differently. She's amazing...
Note to the bio writer (or the typesetter): the album is Boundary COUNTY, not country - it's also the title song.

she's ok

I just discovered this artist via my "Joe Strummer Radio" station and I love her voice as well as the use of the banjo (in "No Place to Go"). Reminds me of HoneyHoney. If you like Eilen Jewell, definitely check out HoneyHoney, similar soulful voice, great lyrics, and occasional banjo.
