Jewel and I go way back. Her 1995 album ‘Pieces of You‘ was on heavy rotation back then and I used to listen to it in floods of tea and tears. Four songs specifically reduced me to a blubbering mess time and time again: ‘Painters’, ‘Angel Standing By’, ‘Don’t’ and ‘Near You Always’. Somehow these songs have aged alongside with me as I just discovered they still bring tears to my eyes.
I chose to share ‘Painters’ with you as this song shows Jewel’s true gift for storytelling.
