Te beginnen met Eilen Jewell.Hoewel ik haar muziek al een poosje kende zag ik ze vorig jaar voor het eerst optreden.De eerste keer voor een aandachtig luisterend publiek in 013 Tilburg ,de tweede keer in een rumoerige De Piek in Vlissingen(ach ja ,die Vlissingers,he?)Niet dat het haar wat uitmaakte hoor,tweemaal een prachtoptreden!
Bovendien bleek Eilen een bijzonder aardige dame ,zonder capsonis voor alle fans veel aandacht had.Enkele dagen later trad ze op in het altijd gezellige Toogenblik in Belgie en Roen,tZwoen maakte onderstaande beelden.Speciale aandacht voor stergitarist Jerry Miller!

Eilen Jewell is a singer, band-leader and songwriter based in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Born in Boise, Idaho on April 6, 1979, Eilen has been performing her brand of roots, blues, jazz and country influenced music in the greater Boston area since the Fall of 2003.

Sea of Tears

At age 19, Eilen began performing at farmer’s markets and local bars in Santa Fe, New Mexico (as a college student at St. John’s), before moving to Los Angeles, California, where she became a fixture in the Venice Beach street circuit.“Busking helped me learn to establish your boundaries as a performer,” she says. “Growing up in Idaho, everyone’s so friendly. It took me a while to not get too disturbed about what strangers might say or do.”

Fading Memory

She then journeyed cross country to New England in January, 2003 and settled briefly in the Berkshire Mountains of Western Massachusetts, where she got her start at the Club Helsinki.

Eilen would often travel to old-time music jams near Boston. There she was introduced to like-minded traditional musicians and music lovers including her current drummer Jason Beek. Eilen moved to Boston in late fall of 2003 and joined the folk and roots music community. Over the next two years she performed solo and with alternating personnel, playing at venues like Club Passim, Plough & Stars and Johnny D’s.

In early, 2005 Eilen began a Saturday evening residency at Tír na nÓg pub in Somerville, Massachusetts, which lasted until 2007.

In December, 2005, with a band including Beek on percussion, Daniel Kellar on violin, Jerry Miller on guitars and upright bass player Johnny Sciascia, Eilen entered Chris Rival’s renovated 19th-century barn/studio to record Boundary County. That album received positive attention from clubs, radio programmers and the press. [

Summer 2007 brought Jewell’s first national release, Letters From Sinners & Strangers, recorded at the Signature Sounds studio in Pomfret, Connecticut. The album reached the Top 10 on the Americana weekly radio chart in addition to being listed on some critics' "best of" lists for 2007.[citation needed] LFS&S continues to receive critical acclaim from around the world.

Gonna Dress In Black

Eilen and her band continue to tour nationally behind the album making stops at NPR's World Cafe [5], XM Radio, Mountain Stage, Woodsong's Old-Time Radio Hour, Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, Grassroots and many more radio stations, clubs and festivals.

2007 also found Eilen sharing the stage with a who's who list of Americana, Folk and Roots musicians. Among the highlights were Loretta Lynn, Chuck Prophet, Chris Smither, Fred Eaglemsith, Jimmy LaFave, Steve Forbert, Holly Golightly, Junior Brown, The Hacienda Brothers, Kris Delmhorst, The Holmes Brothers, Tom Russell and Jack Williams.

Shaking Al over

2008 saw the release of a gospel album from her side project, The Sacred Shakers. Fellow members include Jason Beek, Johnny Sciascia, Daniel Kellar and Daniel Fram. Early 2009 saw Eilen's second solo national release, "Sea of Tears". The Sydney Morning Herald (May 9-10, 2009) called "Sea of Tears" a "startling departure" blended by Eilen's "deft, warm voice".

dank u zeer Arthur :-)
heerlijk onvergetelijk concert was dat... en zo fragiel als Eilen overkomt naast het podium; éénmaal op het podium bloeit ze helemaal open; alsof het haar natuurlijke biotoop is...
