Eilen Jewell – Down Hearted Blues

  • December 20, 2017

Six years after her critically adored album Queen of the Minor Key debuted and following the successful double live Sundown Over Ghost Town, Boise songstress Eilen Jewel is out with her stellar set of blues, country, and R&B covers, Down Hearted Blues. Jewell’s well-crafted interpretations are evocative and seductive, backed by the deft stylings of her dedicated band comprised of Jason Beek (drums), Jerry Miller (guitar), and Shawn Supra (bass). Each song is short yet dynamite aural package that keeps listeners coming back for more. Standouts among the 12 tracks include: opener by Charles Sheffield, It’s Your Voodoo Working; the title track from Bessie Smith; and Albert Washington and His Kings’ You Gonna Miss Me. – Written by SMarx
