Three words: Jewel is cool.
She just is. Even though I can't STAND the song "You Were Meant For Me," I appreciate Jewel. She's got a great voice and her 1995 debut album "Pieces of You" is a classic. I mean geez louise, she recorded it at Neil Young's ranch and was backed by HIS band. If that isn't a stamp of approval, I don't know what is.
She's on a "Greatest Hits" tour that will bring her to Merrill Auditorium on March 10. FMI: porttix.com
I've seen her a couple of times through the year and truth be told, she puts on a fantastic show.
Here's another reason why Jewel is cool. Because she agreed to participate in what I consider to be one of the funniest and most clever things I've seen on the interwebs.
Aimsel Ponti has been obsessed with - and inspired by- music since she listened to Monkees records borrowed from the town library when she was six years old. She's a huge fan of the local music scene and interviews an act every week for "Making Noise" which runs in the Press Herald GO section. You'll also find her out and about absorbing live music like a sponge and roaming around local record shops and flea markets.
