I am so thrilled to be opening this show, what a great night this is going to be. Working with Eilen and her band on this album was a treat and to add my own music to the mix is exciting!! Grab your tickets here.
Known for what allmusic.com describes as a country-flavored and blues-infused version of contemporary folk (which also can include healthy doses of rockabilly and surf), Jewells discography includes several albums of original material and one of Loretta Lynn covers. Jewell has also recorded two albums with her eight-piece gospel-group side project the Sacred Shakers. But this latest effort, which she and Beek co-produced, with engineering by pianist/banjo player Steve Fulton and Pat Storey, is her first collection of blues despite the fact that she credits the genre for igniting her musical curiosity in the first place.
Thats because, even though shes dreamed of recording a blues album since discovering Howlin Wolf as a Boise, Idaho, teen, Jewell had to convince herself she could and should.
