From the remote ranch of her Alaskan youth to the triumph of international stardom, four-time Grammy nominee Jewel, hailed by the New York Times as a “songwriter bursting with talents,” has enjoyed career longevity rare among her generation of artists. Whether alone with her guitar or fronting a band of ace musicians, Jewel has always been a charismatic live performer, earning the respect of other singer-songwriters such as Merle Haggard, Bob Dylan and Neil Young, who, not only invited her to open their shows, but mentored her in the early phases of her career.
After a tremendous amount of success as a singer-songwriter and over 27 million albums sold, Jewel released a Greatest Hits album in 2013. The album features a collection of her most known songs as well as two new duets with Kelly Clarkson and The Pistol Annies, in addition to a new track called “Two Hearts Breaking.” She also starred as June Carter Cash in the Lifetime biopic “Ring of Fire,” which earned four Emmy nominations. In December of 2013 Jewel joined NBC’s “The Sing Off” as a new judge as well as released her much anticipated follow-up holiday album, “Let It Snow.”
In 2015, Jewel released her 13th studio album, “Picking Up the Pieces” a follow up to her first album "Pieces of You" as well as her first memoir, “Never Broken,” which made the New York Times best seller list. In 2016 the memoir will be released on paperback along with an interactive website which compliments the book and offers a three-step formula to living emotionally free and to help guide fans to live the lives they deserve.
