On her seventh studio album, Down Hearted Blues, Eilen Jewell steps back in time to unearth 12 vintage blues gems written or made famous by an array of artists, from Willie Dixon and Memphis Minnie to Charles Sheffield and Betty James.

Like expert stonecutters, she and her band chiseled the songs into exciting new shapes and forms, honoring history while breathing new life into each discovery. Recorded live and in just two days, Down Hearted Blues finds Jewell making each song her own, while paying homage to her beloved inspirations. We really love to uncover the past. Its almost like digging for buried treasure, Jewell says. For me, thats where music is at. I like all kinds of music as long as theres the word early in front of it.
