Where Are They Now: Jewel

Jewel In the 90s

You probably listened to her debut album while riding quietly on the school bus or maybe even learned to pluck out “You Were Meant for Me” on the guitar – allowing the poetry of her words sink into your deepest, most angsty, 90s thoughts. “Jewel gets me,” you said to yourself, strumming the C chord over and over.


The epitome of the mid-90s singer/songwriter craze, and the only folk album you knew more words to than Alanis Morisette’s Jagged Little Pill, Pieces Of You and Jewel’s 20-year-old voice offered a uniquely earnest sound.

So whatever happened to our queen of lyrical poetry? Our minimalist, emotionally raw, blonde cherub of the 90s?
