Folk-influenced LP out Sept. 11 on Sugar Hill Records, offers fans 14 new tracks; Available for pre-order here now. NASHVILLE, Tenn. ­ (July 28, 2015) ­– She first appeared on the scene like a supernova and now, just five years since her last singer-songwriter album, Jewel is returning to the deep, personal territory and folk sound that made her one of music’s most exciting young voices when she released the transcendent Pieces of You. As revealed by this morning, Jewel will release her new album Picking Up the Pieces on Sept. 11 through Sugar Hill Records, now available for pre-order here. She self-produced the 14-track LP – with her first producer, the late Ben Keith, always in mind – and hired a band comprised mostly of Neil Young collaborators to help her strip away the veneer she’d built up over two decades in the music business. “This is just me. These are my thoughts. These are my feelings. This is my poetry,” Jewel said. “It really felt like returning to a part of me that I didn’t mean to lose, but with time and relationships and life and surviving and dealing, you take on new things and not all of them are great.” Find out more straight from the source!

Jewel Signs with New Nashville Label Valory

Scott Borchetta, the president and CEO for Big Machine Records, is launching a second imprint, the Valory Music Company, and has signed Jewel to a multi-album deal, reports.“She’s just one of the best singer/songwriters in any genre,” Scott says, adding that a move to country is “a natural progression for her.” The label’s name is a variation on June Carter Cash‘s birth name, Valerie June Carter. According to Scott, the name means “fierce; the brave one; of valor.” Along with Jewel, whose album was produced by Big & Rich‘s John Rich and is expected in the spring, Valory will be home to Justin Moore and Jimmy Wayne. Justin has been in development, and Jimmy moves over from the Big Machine roster, which includes Taylor Swift, Trisha Yearwood and Jack Ingram, among others. It also handles promotion for Garth Brooks. Jewel, who has cut five of her six albums in Nashville, says country has always been in her plans. “I’ve been wanting to do this record my whole career,” she says, “but my label was always scared of country music. I’ve always had country songs on my records. If I had been discovered now, living in my car in San Diego, I think I would have been signed as a country act.” Earlier this year Jewel hosted the country reality show Nashville Star and she has made a number of appearances at Muzik Mafia events. She co-wrote and dueted with new artist Jason Michael Carroll on “No Good In Goodbye,” which appears on his debut album, Waitin’ in the Country. She will be a presenter on the Country Music Association Awards show on Wednesday. ~Courtesy of GACTV.comCountry Music Photo Gallery
