ABOUT THE ARTISTS:
Hailed by American Songwriter as “one of America’s most intriguing, creative, and idiosyncratic voices,”Eilen Jewell rises from the ashes on her captivating new album, Get Behind The Wheel, picking up the pieces of her shattered world and finding purpose and meaning after watching her marriage, her band,and what felt like her entire career fall apart in a series of spectacular, heartbreaking implosions.Co-produced by multi-instrumental wizard WillKimbrough(Todd Snider, Hayes Carll), the collection pushes the acclaimed singer and songwriter’strademark blend of vintage roots-noir into more psychedelic territory, with spacious, cinematic arrangements complementing her revelatory explorations of grief,loss, resilience,and redemption. An Idaho native, Jewell built her career the old fashioned way, touring relentlessly with the kind of undeniable live show that converts the uninitiated into instant acolytes. Over the course of nine albums, she’s criss crossed the globe countless times and shared bills with the likes of LucindaWilliams, Loretta Lynn, Mavis Staples, Wanda Jackson, George Jones, and Emmylou Harris.Rolling Stonelauded Jewell’s “clever writing,” while NPR declared that she has a “sweet and clearvoice with a killer instinct lurking beneath the shiny surface,” andThe Washington Post mused that “if Neko Case, Madeleine Peyroux andBillie Holiday had a baby girl who grew up to front a rockabilly band, she’d probably sound a lot likeEilen Jewell.”
