Eilen Jewell – Sundown Over Ghost Town

SIG2076 SUNDOWN OVER GHOST TOWN

 

Beat Surrender favourite Eilen Jewel returns with her sixth solo studio release Sundown Over Ghost Town, the album follows the 2011 release Queen of the Minor Key, a couple of live releases including one with Eilen’s musical collaboration with The Sacred Shakers, and the small matter of the birth of her first child and a relocation back to her hometown of Boise, Idaho.

Eilen Jewell – Worried Mind

Once again Eilen hits all of the right notes, Sundown Over Ghost Town features twelve original songs that trek effortlessly through the Americana genre with Eilen’s expressive vocal phrasing creating the perfect vista for the lyrics as the stories and imagery unfold, many of the songs are autobiographical drawing on personal experiences, perhaps influenced unconsciously or otherwise by the changing perspective of motherhood and the return home, collectively the album is the strongest set of songs Eilen has released to date and is out today May the 26th, highly recommended and an early contender for Americana album of the year.
