Eilen Jewell with Miss Tess

JCC Hart Theatre, 1200 Edgewood Avenue, Brighton, NY 14618

Doors 7pm, Music 8pm

“Abilene on the Road” proudly presents

Honesty, confidence, and respect permeate Eilen Jewell’s music, dating back to her self-released Boundary County album in 2006. Since then, the Boise native has recorded five studio albums for Signature Sounds with her road-tested touring band, and two more as a member of the Boston-based gospel-charged Sacred Shakers (also on Signature Sounds), which includes that well-oiled band at its core. Her latest, Sundown Over Ghost Town, is a masterful culmination of Jewell’s work to date.

As hard as it is to categorize Jewell’s music-terms like alt-country, roots-rock, country-noir, and Americana get used a lot-it’s even harder not to become thoroughly enraptured by the singer/songwriter’s powerful versatility, musical stories, and images. And that gorgeous voice makes you feel like she’s singing just for you, out on the breezy back porch or by a crackling campfire. She does so much, so well.
