NPR’s Morning Edition sat down with Eilen Jewell to talk about wanderlust, the ways in which she resembles the “Half-Broke Horse” on her record, the landscape of Idaho, and what it means to come home:

New record ‘Sundown Over Ghost Town’ is at #10 on the Americana radio chart as she continues an extensive, national tour.

"Packed with vivid lyrics, steel guitars, and hot licks, Jewell’s Americana-driven brand of country music sounds tailor-made for sweltering, stagnant summer nights."
- Eric Renner Brown, Entertainment Weekly, May 20, 2015

“Though her fifth album consists entirely of original songs, ‘Sundown Over Ghost Town’ feels like a welcome return to a set of classics you've known forever, gently touching on desire, loneliness, and the longing for home… Perfect for fans of Madeleine Peyroux.” – Jon Young, Mother Jones, June 1, 2015

- Craig Shelburne, CMT Edge, March 24, 2015

“Eilen Jewell is an artist to keep your eyes on… Fans may also hear a bit of Kacey Musgraves in her laid-back and effortless sound.”
- Christina Vinson, The Boot, April 18, 2015

“Tantalizing... Wonderful voice... this slightly restrained, beautifully crafted and enticing Eilen Jewell disc proves she remains one of America’s most intriguing, creative and idiosyncratic voices.”
- Hal Horowitz, American Songwriter, May 26, 2015

“A revelatory journey rich with cinematic visions, elegant, sweet, and smoky vocals, and hauntingly autobiographical songs inspired by her return to the West.”
- Jeremy D. Bonfiglio, No Depression, May 28, 2015

“The most succinct and poignant album of her career... Excellent.”
- Timothy Monger, All Music Guide

"8 stars… expressive grace and imagery... barbed details... Her melodies create sonic landscapes, mostly of the mythic American West where human beings have the perspective of big open spaces to compare themselves with a wide-screen setting... The music sets the words off, like the Milky Way on a dark black night."
- Steve Horowitz, Pop Matters, May 28, 2015

"Masterful... Eilen! Eilen! Eilen!"
- Mike Jurkovic, Elmore Magazine, May 28, 2015

"It's not an overstatement to say that Eilen Jewell is Johnny Cash reincarnate... Jewell packs a punch that doesn't bruise until after the meaning of her work sets into listeners' bones."
- Kate Everson, Country Standard Time
