Sporting a lyrically and physically captivating voice and backed by a band producing rockabilly, Americana and folk-influenced sounds, Eilen Jewell is a treasure of song, patiently waiting to be discovered by you. Criss-crossing the stages of the world, she puts out album after album (seven at this point) of well-crafted, good sounding songs based in biography, touched by poetry and melded into a truth of sorts that compels the heart, congeals the mind and converts the soul of the listener into a believer of the world she creates. Her latest recording, Sundown in a Ghost Town, coincides with returning to her hometown of Boise, Idaho, spending time listening to what goes round. A deceptively simple recorded sound masks a complexity rarely found in contemporary song work. From music beginnings busking in Santa Fe to a music career in Boston, the Signature Sound label member consistently brings confidence, charisma and caring to all that she does in her space of music. Jewell spent most of April in Australia and New Zealand opening for Jason Isbell.
