RIDGEFIELD, Conn. – Just more than a month after releasing her first greatest hits album, singer-songwriter Jewel will take the stage at the Ridgefield Playhouse on Monday, March 18.
Over her career, her songs have crossed the pop, folk, rock, country and singer/songwriter genres, but she is best known for songs such as “Who Will Save Your Soul,” “You Were Meant For Me” and “Foolish Games.”
Jewel was signed to Atlantic Records before she was 19. Since then, she has sold more than 27 million albums and earned several awards, including four Grammy nominations. Jewel received the 1996 American Music Awards Favorite New Artist, the 1998 Blockbuster Music Awards Favorite Female Artist, the 1999 Radio Music Awards Favorite Female Artist Modern Rock and many other honors.
“I have been blessed to experience some amazing things in my life. I sang at the Vatican for Pope John Paul II. I toured and got to sing with Bob Dylan. I sang with BB King in England, and again in the White House for President Clinton. I got to be on Merle Haggard's album of #1 Hits. I have sold more records than a songwriter ought to,” Jewel said on her website bio.
Jewel will be joined on stage by Holly Williams, a fellow singer/songwriter and daughter of country singer Hank Williams Jr. Williams’ second album, “Here With Me” was named by People magazine one of the top 10 albums of 2009 in any genre. Billboard magazine proclaimed it, “One of the best singer/songwriter albums to come out of Nashville in the last year.”
