Boise, Idaho’s The Queen of the Minor Key Eilen Jewell is a rarity in this new heyday of indie musicians. With a fair mix of roots, blues, and rock, Jewell is a stands out among her peers. Her recent single, “It’s Your Voodoo Working”, from the  ‘Down Hearted Blues’ album, is a top example of Jewell’s powers. A shadowy vocal delivery that lurks between a crisp R&B beat and near rockabilly blues guitar. Taking that New Orleans sound and spreading it into broader landscapes. Which is brilliantly respectful of the 1961 Charles Sheffield version.

Check out the Jason Sievers directed video below. ‘Down Hearted Blues’ is available now via Signature Sounds Recordings.
