Who is Jewel Kilcher?

Born under the sign of Gemini on the 23rd of May 1974 in Payson, Utah USA, Jewel Kilcher is a 44-year-old Caucasian singer-songwriter, musician, actress, producer, poet and author of German and Alaskan descent. She is perhaps best known for her longer-term career as a singer, and thanks to some of her most famous songs such as “Foolish Games”, “Who Will Save Your Soul” and “You Were Meant For Me.” She has also had a number of other successes over the course of her sometimes lucrative career since 1994.

Early Life: Growing Up in Alaska

Jewel’s  family moved to Anchorage in Alaska when she was still very young. She was raised with an older brother Shane, and two younger ones named Atz Jr. and Nikos – the latter her half-brother – by her reality TV personality father named Atz Kilcher, who is known for being in the “Alaska: The Last Frontier” series, and her singer mother named Lenedra Jewel Kilcher (nee Carroll). Her parents divorced in 1981, with her father granted custody, and she moved in with him in Homer, Alaska. As for her education, it is unknown which high school Jewel attended in Homer, but at age 15 while working at a dance studio in Anchorage, she was referred to Interlochen Arts Academy in Interlochen, Michigan by the studio instructor. She gained a partial scholarship after her application, but she needed another $11,000 for the first year. Homer’s local businesses put together items to auction off for the amount, and she eventually moved to Michigan, receiving training in classical music and guitar lessons at the academy.


After she moved in with her father, Homer being one of the recent Alaskan settlements, Jewel spent her early years unlike most other children. When asked about the time she spent growing up alongside her father, she stated: ‘We lived far from town. We had to walk 2 miles (3.2 km) just to get to the saddle barn I was raised in… No running water, no heat—we had a coal stove and an outhouse and we mainly lived off of what we could kill or catch. We picked berries and made jam. We caught fish to freeze and had gardens and cattle to live on. I rode horses every day in the summer beneath the Alaskan midnight sun. I loved it there.’

Career: From Coffee Shops to the Grand Stage

Jewel was first taught how to yodel by her father, with whom she sang on occasion in order to make an extra buck. After receiving guitar training, at 16 she started writing songs for the guitar. After her graduation, she moved to San Diego, California, where she worked as a ‘phone operator at a computer warehouse and in a coffeehouse. She started moving around the country and doing local shows anywhere she could, ranging from hotels to coffee shops. During her early career, she eventually met Steve Poltz, who she would later recruit as her guitarist. In 1993, she was spotted by John Hogan from “Rust”, who let his manager Inga Vainshtein from Paramount know that Jewel is a talented performer who deserves a chance. Vainshtein went to see her sing along with a representative from Atlantic Records. Subsequently, Jewel was signed by the said music production company and she released her first album entitled “Pieces of You” in 1995, which at its peak reached #4 on the Billboard 200. In 1998, she released her second album entitled “Spirit”, while “Joy: A Holiday Collection” came out in 1999. In the same year, aforementioned Steve Poltz followed her on the Spirit World Tour. After that, she released a total of nine more albums, with the maximum space of three years in between each one.

Literary Works

Jewel is also well-versed in poetry, having published a poetry book entitled “A Night Without Armor”, released on the 18th of May 1998. She published her second book, entitled “Chasing Down the Dawn” in 2000, which is an autobiographical collection of diary entries and musings that address her early life in Alaska. Her third book is a memoir entitled “Never Broken: Songs Are Only Half The Story”, and it came out on the 15th of September 2015.

It is unknown who she has dated after that, or who got custody of the child. She is now resident in Nashville, Tennessee.

Jewel on Feminism:

Jewel is a well-known feminist, who once stated: ‘I don’t think I started off young as a feminist. I read a lot of books in Alaska, I was pretty isolated where I grew up, and I think that I never thought I was any different than a man; I was raised in a place where pioneer women were very strong still. They’d shoe horses and build their own homes and were very self-sufficient. It wasn’t really until I’ve gotten older that I really became a fan of women. And a fan of what women are capable of balancing and achieving, by just being them.’
