Eilen Jewell laughs when told her label’s president called her a musicologist. But she confirms she and her husband and bandmate, drummer Jason Beek, have a passion for studying American music.“We really love to uncover the past. It’s almost like digging for buried treasure,” she says. “For me, that’s where music is at.”
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),” Jewell’s 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.
Eilen’s eight album releases and constant touring in North America, Europe, and Australia have established her as an acclaimed voice and writer in the Americana world. Her new album “Gypsy” will be released on Signature Sounds Records on August 16, 2019.
