Description

Boston-based artist Eilen Jewell puts her own beautiful stamp on old country, folk and blues.

Her first two albums, Boundary County (self-released, 2006) and Letters from Sinners and Strangers (Signature Sounds, 2007) were astonishingly assured efforts, which matched Jewell's understated yet insightful songs with a rugged blend of Americana styles. "On those albums," she reflects, "people told me they heard folk, country, western swing, rockabilly, and even jazz?but a part of my roots has been left out up until now."

With Sea of Tears, Jewell and her longtime band of Jason Beek (drums, harmony vocals), Jerry Miller (electric, acoustic, and steel guitars), and Johnny Sciascia (upright bass) wed her elegantly unflinching songwriting with a rustic, pre-Beatles swagger that encapsulates vintage R&B, Midwestern garage rock, Chicago blues, and early rock and rockabilly, while maintaining the haunting, folkinspired purity that first made her an artist to watch.
