Jewel talks about her new album called Lullaby and a live performance of Over the Rainbow
You couldn't fine a cozier place for a focusing other than the style series. The Diet Coke pop-up kitchen with an ideal setting for our audience to get up close and personal with a true artist and story teller. A sweet voice singer and song writer, Jewel, she took us on a memorable musical journey.
Now you have a new album, this is very exciting called Lullaby--
Tell me about that?
It's my first independent release, I got to make it at the ranch, I built a studio and got to produce it myself. And it's basically songs that I've written over the course of my career to help myself relax.
I don't sleep very good and I've always had a hard time and just being stressed and nervous specially I moved out when I was 15.
And I wrote a song called Raven, which is on there. And I wrote Angels Standing By, while I was homeless. And I thought if I'm an adult and I like lullaby basically there must be other adults who would like that. When all the world is a hopeless jumble and the raindrops tumble all around. Heaven opens a magic lane. When all the cloud darken up the skyway. There's a rainbow highway to be found leading from your windowpane to a place behind the sun, just a step beyond the rain. Somewhere over the rainbow way up high there's a land that I heard of once in a lullaby. Some day I'll wish upon a star and wake up where the clouds are far behind me. And troubles melt like lemon drops away above the chimney tops that's where you'll find me. Somewhere over rainbow bluebirds fly oh with birds can fly over the rainbow, why, then why can't I? Someday I'll wake and rub my eyes and in that land beyond the skies you'll find me. I'll be a laughing daffodil and leave the silly cares that fill my mind behind me. Somewhere, somewhere over, over, over, over the rainbow bluebirds fly. Oh if birds can fly over the rainbow, why, then why can't I? If happy little bluebirds fly beyond the rainbow, why, oh, why can't I?
