Called "one of the most richly idiomatic pop singers of her generation (Rolling Stone)," Jewel has sold over 30 million albums to date and earned praise from fellow songwriters including Loretta Lynn and Neil Young. A cornerstone of the current American and folk movements, the singer will perform fan favorites including "Who Will Save Your Soul," which sold 12 million copies. She most recently toured with her album "Picking Up the Pieces," sharing stories from her New York Times bestselling memoir "Never Broken — Songs Are Only Half the Story."
Atz Kilcher is Jewel's father. Along with her family, he stars in Discovery Channel's hit show "Alaska: The Last Frontier," which centers on the Kilcher family and their community outside Homer, Alaska. Begun by patriarch Yule Kilcher, who immigrated from Europe during World War II, and currently led by his sons, Otto and Atz Kilcher, the family has lived on the land for four generations. The show also features the homesteaders who live nearby and interact with the Kilchers.
