Queen of the Minor Key / Eilen Jewell

Just heard this chick on local country radio.

Never heard of her before but sounds great.

Eilen Jewell continues to explore these sounds from the past, like she did on “Sea of Tears,” with the same kind of authenticity that Gillian Welch and David Rawlings evoke on their recordings. Jewell is the kind of artist that will be able to mine these and other musical landscapes for as long as she wishes, constantly discovering new facets to old diamonds. From beginning to end, Queen of the Minor Key is a dusky, brilliant, polished gem.

My question: How did you ever hear anybody that good on the radio?

No worries teleflyer,

I think we will be hearing lots more from her!

She is doing some gigs with Lucinda Williams I believe ?

Cheers.

She's pretty well known in Americana circles. If she ever gets Down Under check her out. She has an awesome band.

This is one of her best tunes, IMO, and some great work on the Gretsch here:

Been listening to her for a couple years, great stuff!

Jerry Miller's solo record is really good too.

Yup - ordered her record based on this thread in its original incarnation + a bunch of U-tubes.

The whole album is great. I bought it when it first came out and would have worn out the mp3s, if such a thing were possible. It's her best album yet. Great guitar work and performances all around.
