Jewel

As a story, Jewel's origin is impossible to beat: on her way up, the singer/songwriter lived in a van on the West Coast, struggling to find an entrance to a career as a professional musician. This hardscrabble tale, only enhanced by her Alaskan upbringing, stood in direct contrast to the sweet, gentle hits "Who Will Save Your Soul," "You Were Meant for Me," and "Foolish Games" from her 1995 debut Pieces of You, songs that never suggested a tough background. Nevertheless, Jewel's sensitive side and blue-collar beginnings served her well over the years: once her books of poetry started to fade and her pop makeover fizzled, she was able to capitalize on her back-story and refashion herself as a modern country singer.

Jewel Kilcher is a native of Homer, Alaska, her family relocating after her 1974 birth in Payson, Utah. Jewel began singing at an early age, performing at tourist attractions in Homer, and after her parents’ divorce she stayed with her father, performing with him as he toured the country. As a teenager, she attended Interlochen Fine Arts Academy in Michigan, which is where she made her first stabs at songwriting. Once she graduated Interlochen, she moved to San Diego to be with her mother, and after working for a while, she decided to pursue music as a career. She ditched creature comforts and moved into her van, attempting to get gigs wherever she could, eventually landing a regular spot at the Innerchange in Pacific Beach. Soon she built up a loyal following, which translated to a contract with Atlantic Records, which released the live-sounding Pieces of You in early 1995.

Pieces of You was not an immediate hit, but Jewel and Atlantic worked it steadily, with the singer/songwriter touring the country and the label releasing single versions that eventually caught hold over a year after the album’s release, beginning with “Who Will Save Your Soul.” “You Were Meant for Me” and “Foolish Games” followed over the course of 1996, helping send Pieces of You to an astonishing 12-times-platinum level, making it one of the best-selling debuts of all time. Its success allowed Jewel to pursue whatever she wanted, beginning with Night Without Armor, a collection of her poetry. This was a rest stop on the way to her sophomore set, Spirit, a string-heavy sentimental record. Although it did not sell as well as Pieces of You, that was perhaps an unfair comparison, given the phenomenon of the debut; it still performed well, largely thanks to the single “Hands.”

Jewel followed Spirit with the seasonal Joy: A Holiday Collection for Christmas 1999, while Chasing Down the Dawn -- a spoken word album featuring unabridged selections from the book of the same name -- appeared in the fall of 2000. This Way appeared one year later and featured such standout singles as "Standing Still"; it also hinted at Jewel's growing fondness for dance music, as a remixed version of "Serve the Ego" wound up topping the American dance/club charts in 2002. Even so, fans and critics were shocked when the singer's next release, 0304, turned out to be a slick dance-pop album. Just as unexpected was Jewel's decision to allow the Schick company to use her album's hit single, "Intuition," for an advertising campaign introducing a new razor.

Her new image didn't last long, however, and Goodbye Alice in Wonderland -- released in May 2006 -- marked a return to the warm sound of the singer's earlier work. Although it debuted in the Billboard Top Ten, the album failed to go platinum, and marked the end of Jewel's association with Atlantic Records. Working with producer John Rich of Big & Rich, Jewel subsequently refashioned herself as a country singer for 2008's Perfectly Clear, which debuted atop the country albums charts. It was followed in 2010 by the similarly successful (and dutifully countrified) Sweet and Wild. Jewel released a children's album, The Merry Goes 'Round, the following year through the Fisher-Price label. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

longliveliz
Hands and Foolish Games are such good songs. Her voice very recognizable as well, which is refreshing. =D
Always loved her song 'Foolish Games,' and her duet with Kelly Clarkson, featuring beautiful harmonies, is equally moving.
Beautiful woman.. beautiful voice.

Her voice reminds me of shakira... =/
mancinimj
Such a sad song...
Everyone's life is a journey and we are all multifaceted . If she chose to explore herself through different genres, so be it. We have to choose to be authentic. I think she did this and I applaud and respect her and all her music. I love listening to all of if it at different times. Each album has something that I can connect with that helps me get lost for awhile. In other words, her music, her voice, her words, touch my soul. Thank you Jewel. -longtimefan

In the end, only kindness matters. I heard this at a time when I had ceased talking to a close friend when I had plenty of reasons why. This song helped me realize that no matter how right I was, I would still have lost a friend. Teary-eyed, I just let my grievances go, picked up the phone to talk to her. Thank you, Jewel! We're still good friends to this day.
Her voice is Amazing and she is very beautiful
stay 4ever...beau t i f u l
i love jewel...!!!!
I like your songs and singing
Hands was the song.
I heard this at an assembly at my school. It's called Rachels' Challenge. It's very heartfelt. This song fit it perfectly.
