Eilen has been on our radar for a while now. Here's a few reviews from recent albums to explain why we like her:
Paste: "The big tent of the blues encompasses a host of styles, and Down Hearted Blues runs the gamut, from the scorching electric fury of Otis Rush’s “You Know My Love” to the jaunty swing of Little Walter’s “Crazy Mixed Up World” – both penned by the great Willie Dixon – to the unplugged elegance of Memphis Minnie’s “Nothing in Rambling.” Unlike clumsier white interpreters who have tried over the years to signify credibility by resorting to histrionics or tackling obvious standards (“Stormy Monday,” “Crossroads,” et al.), or both, Jewell doesn’t claim undue authenticity, happily remaining her resolutely unflappable self."
NPR Music: The result is a rootsy, rocking record-collectors’ love affair of old songs that Jewell and her husband and bandmate, drummer Jason Beek, have a fondness for. “We really love to uncover the past. It’s almost like digging for buried treasure,” Jewell says about the new album, out on September 22 on Signature Sounds.
“Packed with vivid lyrics, steel guitars, and hot licks, Jewell’s Americana-driven brand of country music sounds tailor-made for sweltering, stagnant summer nights.” – Eric Renner Brown, Entertainment Weekly
“It’s not an overstatement to say that Eilen Jewell is Johnny Cash reincarnate… Jewell packs a punch that doesn’t bruise until after the meaning of her work sets into listeners’ bones.” – Kate Everson, Country Standard Time
“She’s got a sweet and clear voice with a killer instinct lurking beneath the shiny surface.” - NPR Song of the Day
