Blending influences of classic country, folk, and 1960s era rock ’n’ roll with touches of surf-noir and early blues and jazz, Eilen Jewell and her band are belatedly touring in celebration of her 2019 album Gypsie, with her 2023 tour marking her first time Down Under since she was last here in 2018.

Australia came under Eilen’s spell well ahead of most places, on the back of her intoxicating third album, 2009’s Sea of Tears. She toured here for the first time in 2010, on the back of that album and strong radio support for the album’s bewitching opener “Rain Roll In”. She returned two years later, following the release of her Loretta Lynn tribute album Butcher Holler and the album from which came her sobriquet, The Queen of the Minor Key, and appeared at Bluesfest and on Rockwiz.
