Jewel was born in Utah, and grew up in Alaska. She began her musical career at the age of six.

Jewel later moved to San Diego, California, to live with her mother, and eventually branched out on her own, ending up living in a van for a time as she tried to make it as a performer.

Jewel comes on WoodSongs to read from her new memior plus perform songs from her new album.
