An Intimate Portrait from Family and Friends
She has been called "one of the most richly idiomatic female pop singers of her generation" by Rolling Stone magazine. Translation: Jewel speaks to millions of fans of all ages through her award-winning music and bestselling poetry books.
Now, get to know this supertalented performer for the down-to-earth, savvy, and unpretentious person she is -- a dynamic young woman who, her friends all agree, is "too normal to be a rock star." Revealing Jewel pieces together a remarkable portrait, through the words of those who know her best: her family and close friends, her band, and her colleagues on the road, in the studio, and on the movie set -- including Moby, producer Arif Mardin, actor/director Billy Bob Thornton, Jewel's father, singer/ songwriter Atz Kilcher, and her mother and manager, Lenedra J. Carroll. This one-of-a-kind compilation gets up close and personal on:
Jewel's childhood...the hard times...her rise to fame...paying her dues...the recording experience...the touring life...superstardom...artistic pursuits...her passions...her causes...her friendships...her love life...her personal style...her sharp wit and hard-won wisdom.
Also included are trivia questions, candid photos, and sidebars in Jewel's own words. Delve into Revealing Jewel and celebrate the heart and soul of an artist who constantly challenges our assumptions and defies our expectations.
