Her vast and wide-ranging catalogue of songs, many of which have been performed in concert but never recorded, is rapidly approaching 1,000 songs. As one of the premier singer-songwriters of our time, Jewel's inimitable voice explores a wide range of sonic textures in a manner that few have ever been so successful. With emotionally potent lyrics and intense vocals, Jewel has taken her place among the most successful musicians of her generation.
