Jewel is one of my favorite singers. Her music is excellent and I love how she can go from one genre to the other, and is able to mix it up. Her lyrics are clever, and so is she. She is a relief to all of the other singers out there, she doesn't let fame get to her, she never went into this wanting to be famous. She just wants to play her music.
If you've never heard her I suggest you give her a listen :
