Eilen Jewell (pronounced EE-lin) has explored everything from country gospel, blues, R&B — even '60s-inspired garage rock — throughout her career. Her story began at age 7, when the future singer-songwriter became increasingly fascinated by classical music.

In her teenage years, Jewell grew interested in folk. Picking up her first guitar at 14, she went straight to writing songs and performing at local farmers' markets and bars. After the release of her official debut, Boundary County, in 2006, Jewell was compared to the likes of Lucinda Williams and Gillian Welch.

In the making of her new album, Queen of the Minor Key, her third full-length, she sought the help of different guests for her backup band. The album is set for release this coming June.

Hear the singer-songwriter perform today from the Kimmel Center stage in Philadelphia.
