There’s more to Eilen Jewell than meets the eye. National Public Radio, on its listing for Song of the Day, says, “She’s got a sweet and clear voice with a killer instinct lurking beneath the shiny surface.” USA Today describes her as “Dark and haunting, but alluring just the same...Give me more of that voice.” Her voice certainly stays with you, a captivating blend of wild and under control. Her music encompasses a wide range of traditions, from the folk and jug band leanings of her first few albums, to the vintage country stylings of her Loretta Lynn tribute, to gospel, garage rock, and Chicago blues. Her last studio album, Queen of the Minor Key, features 14 originals, ranging from torch songs to roadhouse rockers. AllMusic calls the album “a reminder that this music at its best speaks to the wayward impulses of the human heart, and Eilen Jewell embodies that quiet, insistent voice as well as anyone making music in the 21st century.” Now, after a brief hiatus to welcome her first child into the world—a daughter, Mavis, named after Mavis Staples—she’s back on the road with a new live album, Live at the Narrows, which includes original songs and some of her favorite covers.
Milton is a New York City singer-songwriter who “has the pitch and rhythm to carry the day, and his sophisticated lyrics keep listeners coming back for more,” according to the New York Times. “The one-name singer knows what he’s doing,” says NPR. "Serving up a soulful blend of literate, street-smart NYC folk and free-wheeling Texas troubadour-syled alt-country, Milton hits all the right notes,” adds Blurt Magazine. Milton has released four albums, including his latest, Lady at the Bottom of the Hill. “My songwriting heroes,” he says, “have always been the really smart ones who write great poetry over great tunes: Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, Hank Williams, Bob Marley. My favorite singers were always the real churchy ones.” He zeroes in on the little moments of life and reminds us of the wonder.
