iTunes Review

Eilen Jewell sets the scene for her sixth release with the opener “Radio City,” a stylish instrumental fired by yakety sax and tremolo guitar. It’s a perfect beginning to a dynamite album that finds her and her band creating a vivid musical landscape. Queen of the Minor Key features spot-on rockabilly (title track), classic country (“Only One,” “Long Road”), and blues (“I Remember You”), but the best tunes mash-up all three styles brilliantly (“Warning Signs,” “Bang Bang Bang,” “Hooked,” “Home to Me,” “Reckless”). Depending on the situation, Jewell’s voice can be sultry or strong, wicked or wounded, and her phrasing is particularly impressive on the torch songs “Over Again” and “Only One.” Aided by her swinging band of Johnny Sciasa (bass), Jason Beek (drums), and Jerry Miller (guitars, steel guitar), along with guests on saxophone, organ, and fiddle, she gets her songs across in a confident and clever way. Queen of the Minor Key ends as it began, with another revved-up, surf rock instrumental, neatly wrapping up a sparkling jewel of a record.

Customer Reviews

'Home to Me' is a perfect song

Seriously, I can't stop listening to it - soon to be in therapy. Lots of wonderful and interesting music here. Stylistically all over the map - in a very good way. Slow country blues, to up tempo pop/rock w/ a bit of twang, and everything in-between and on the edges. All of these styles/genres are nailed spot-on, with beautiful vocals and great, understated guitar work throughout. Give it a listen, and if you like it be sure to check-out 'Sea of Tears' from a couple of years ago. But if you're here, you probably know about that one already, right?

So good!!

We love Eilen and her Band!!

She does it again!!!!

Another great album. It is an extension of Sea of Tears and then some. I love the sax additions. Of course the guitar playing is great and the vocals are awesome!

Although her country-flavored and blues-infused version of contemporary folk (which also can include healthy doses of rockabilly and surf) has drawn comparisons to musicians like Lucinda Williams, Gillian Welch, Jolie Holland, and the Be Good Tanyas, Eilen Jewell's strongest influences have been the classic sides recorded by Bessie Smith and Billie Holiday (the latter artist is no doubt the source for Jewell's characteristic and surprisingly effective stretched, slowed, and even slurred vocal mannerisms)....
