A Fugitive Loose in Yellowstone

Greetings from Yellowstone!

While it’s 107 degrees back home in Texas, it's a brisk 53 degrees up here in Montana today, and I am really enjoying the cool weather.

Tricks of the Trade

I have been thrilled with the great response from fans to Sweet And Wild. I especially loved that I was able to do the deluxe version with Sweet And Mild - the acoustic version of the album. Music and writing are my life blood. I breathe it and it comes out of my pores. I am always writing, always thinking of melodies. It’s like a river flows in my head and if I open a channel for it to come out, it just pours out. It doesn’t even feel like it comes from me. It feels like there are operas and novels an

Funny Or Die Q&A

For those of you who haven't seen it yet - I did a skit with the Funny Or Die people and also sat down to answer some questions about the experience.

Creativity

People sometimes ask how I channel creativity - be it writing songs, short stories or poems, painting or drawing. I don’t have to choose what I will do on any given day because it chooses me. It’s hard to describe - kind of like describing the difference between thirst and hunger. They are both strong impulses, but impossible to describe the subtle difference that causes you to reach for a glass instead of a spoon. That’s how it is with my art. One day I feel hungry to write poems. It’s just quiet. There

Funny Or Die

After the Star Light Cafe Tour ended, I went to LA to do some skits with the Funny Or Die folks. It was so much fun! You can now see the first skit by clicking here . I got to dress up as a businesswoman and go into a karaoke bar and sang my own songs to see if anyone realized it was me. Hope you like it.

CMT Posted

I’m excited to be the featured artist on CMT Posted! I love a multimedia platform because I have so many sides of myself that can’t all be packed into a 2 dimensional CD. That’s why I love Twitter, vlogs and blogs because it lets people get to know me. There is so much in my life that’s fun, like being on the ranch and going to brandings, and riding our motorcycles and target practicing. When I’m on the road I’m really silly and am always doing skits so I can't wait to share all this with the CMT audien

Sweet And Wild appearances

Hi everyone! Jewel’s new album has just been released. Here are some exclusive links to performances of her new songs and features never before seen.

Almost Famous With Natalie - Highland, CA

Ahhhhhhhhh...I'm gonna be famous...well almost!!! Ahhhhhhhh! I had a whole week to mull over what I was gonna ask Jewel. I sought advice from everyone I knew, and still I went with nothing planned. I didn't want to type or write my questions for fear of forgetting how to read. While waiting I did manage to write a few notes on an ATM receipt but that didn't work out so well because I forgot to take it out of my pocket until mid-interview. Line.....set list....thanks Laura.

Almost Famous with Brenda - Wichita

I was SOOOO excited to win the Almost Famous contest for the Wichita show!!! I’ve enjoyed Jewel’s music for a long time but REALLY became a fan after my husband Ron (who has been a fan since “Pieces of You” came out) took me to one of her concerts a couple of years ago. Unlike some artists who sound better after studio magic has been applied to their performance Jewel sounds AWESOME live with just her pure voice. And her guitar playing made me frequently think that there had to be a second guitari

Jewel Info Roundup!

Hi All,

With Jewel’s birthday this weekend (on Sunday!) and so much else going on simultaneously, I thought I’d blog a sort of “Jewel info roundup,” containing the numerous updates of late in one handy place. I’ll try to do this more often as the album and tour launches. In the meantime, this should get you all caught up.

Pollstar

Pollstar recently wrote an interesting article regarding the worldwide album launch party that is happening on June 7. You can read the article HERE.

You can also participate in the party! Check the listing HERE to see if a city or venue near you will be participating.

Almost Famous With Abby - Vicksburg

So I was sitting down to write my Almost Famous blog, and found the best songs of the nineties on VH1... What a perfect ending to my Almost Famous experience! I can't say enough about the concert, the backstage experience, and meeting Jewel. I should start at the beginning. I saw that Jewel would be performing in Vicksburg and immediately called my husband to have him order tickets. My husband saw that there was a VIP experience, but with a 14 month old, $200 concert tickets weren't really on

Thanks!

I'd like to thank every single person who came out to the Bluebird show last night and donated their time and funds toward Project Clean Water! The shows raised $20,000 and was a huge success thanks to all of you. I really appreciate all the support throughout the years in making the charity possible. Also, as promised, the next lyric to the next song- "What You Are." You can also click HERE for the vl

Almost Famous With Ashley - Atlantic City

I got the most exciting email of my life five days before the Atlantic City show. "Congratulations, Ashley! You are the Almost Famous winner!!" I just sat there staring at my computer shaking with tears streaming down my face. Words can't describe how happy I was at that moment!! The only person I would ever think to bring with me to meet Jewel was Sandy (Leapbaby). I got a hold of her as soon as I could, and when I told her, she was just as excited as me! She was screaming into the phone - we wer
