Eilen Jewell
shares video for “Crawl”
from new album, Gypsy 
out August 16
on Signature Sounds

Idaho-native singer-songwriter Eilen Jewell explores her rambling fever on “Crawl,” the latest release from her forthcoming album Gypsy (out on August 16 via Signature Sounds).

“I want to crawl right out of my skin/ Go back in time, cake walk in red fringe,” Jewell sings. “I want solitude, don’t want to be alone/ Want to put down roots, want to be a rolling stone.”

The video, which Wide Open Country premiered, is set in Jewell’s hometown of Boise, Idaho, and captures a spirit of wanderlust as well as a love for home.

“I love the video’s imagery,” Jewell says. “The motion of the train tracks juxtaposed with the stillness of the Boise, Idaho downtown scenes catches that tug-of-war sentiment laid out in the words, that uneasy feeling of wanting to go and wanting to stay at the same.”

Eilen Jewell leads a tight quartet that blends influences of surf-noir, early blues, classic country, folk, and 1960s era rock ’n’ roll.  For well over a decade, they’ve toured relentlessly for legions of fans from Boston to Boise and Madrid to Melbourne, playing large festivals, theaters, rock clubs, and coffeehouses. The group has shared stages with the likes of Lucinda Williams, Loretta Lynn, Mavis Staples, Wanda Jackson, George Jones, Emmylou Harris, and Blind Boys of Alabama.

Eilen’s fans have marveled at her warmth and onstage humor alongside her beautiful songs and fiery performances. In addition to six of her own full-length albums, Jewell has released two albums with her country-gospel side-project, the Sacred Shakers; a tribute album to Loretta Lynn titled Butcher Holler; and a recent album of rare blues covers, Down Hearted Blues.
