American Songwriterdescribes EilenJewell as“one of America’s most intriguing, creative and idiosyncratic voices.” That singular voice springs forth from a woman of more than one mind, and she taps into many of them on2019’s Gypsy on Signature Sounds.

By turns personal and political, pissed off and blissed out, Jewell’s first album of original material since 2015 expands brief moments of joy into lifetimes, and distills epic sentiments and persistent doubts into succinct songs. Yet rather than pulling artist and listener this way and that, the tensions within and between these12tracks propel her eighth studio album forward as a remarkably cohesive full-length.

Eilen Jewell (born April 6, 1979) is an American singer-songwriter from Boise, Idaho. She has released seven albums of music. Jewell grew up in Boise, Idaho and attended college in Santa Fe, New Mexico. In 2015 she returned to Boise after having lived in the Boston area for several years. Her 2015 album, Sundown Over Ghost Town, was largely inspired by her return to Boise.
