Eilen Jewell laughs when told her labels president called her a musicologist. But she confirms she and her husband and bandmate, Jason Beek, have a passion for studying American music.

We really love to uncover the past. Its almost like digging for buried treasure, she says. For me, thats where music is at. I like all kinds of music as long as theres the word early in front of it.

Although her country-flavored and blues-infused version of contemporary folk has drawn comparisons to musicians like Lucinda Williams, Gillian Welch, Jolie Holland, and the Be Good Tanyas, Eilen Jewell's strongest influences have been the classic sides recorded by Bessie Smith and Billie Holiday.

For her latest album, Down Hearted Blues, they unearthed 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. Then, like expert stonecutters, they chiseled them into exciting new shapes and forms, honoring history while breathing new life into each discovery.

"Tantalizing and wonderful. This slightly restrained, beautifully crafted and enticing Eilen Jewell disc proves she remains one of Americans most intriguing, creative and idiosyncratic voices."  American Songwriter
