Eilen Jewell at Club Helsinki Huson on April 17th
Idaho native Eilen Jewell, described as “one of America’s most intriguing, creative and idiosyncratic voices” and the self-styled “queen of the minor key,” is coming to Club Helsinki Hudson on Friday, April 17th at 9 p.m. Jewell will be performing old favorites and songs from last year’s album Gypsy.
Known for her unique blend of noirish rockabilly, surf-tinged country, retro-rock and jazzy folk she is a favorite of Helsinki audiences. Jewell emerged from Boston’s thriving indie-roots music scene in the mid-oughts, and has established herself as a solidly rootsy vocalist and Americana songwriter since that time.
Influenced by Billie Holiday, Bob Dylan, Gillian Welch, Bessie Smith, Patsy Cline, and Howlin’ Wolf, Jewell’s style is a unique blend of these disparate approaches, creating a distinct musical niche for herself as singer, songwriter, guitarist, and harmonica player.
Jewell leads a quartet group that takes on influences for surf noir, early blues, rockabilly, and the 1960’s era rock ‘n’ roll. Jewell and her band have toured and performed from Boston to Boise and Madrid to Melbourne at festivals, theaters, rock clubs, and coffeehouses. Her fiery stage presence alongside her warmth and unique wit is not one to miss out on.
Jewell’s album Down Hearted Blues was named one of the top albums of 2017 by readers of No Depression Magazine. The album featured 12 vintage gems written or made famous by an array of artists both renowned and obscure, from Willie Dixon and Memphis Minnie to Charles Sheffield and Betty James.
