Thank You

First and foremost I'd like to extend my gratitude to Dann Huff for his musicality and craftsmanship, but mostly fOr his flexibility and an open mind. This is a versatile and very idiosyncratic record and I don't think anyone else could have done as good a job as you, Dann. I'd like to thank all the musicians for their enthusiasm and for reaching deep for new sounds. Thanks to Ron Shapiro for your constant guidance and support and for not just stopping at label concerns, but letting me try to make the best music I can. You're an asset to any artist. Thanks to my mom, Lenedra Carroll, for your unusual and unequalled ability to guide, serve and protect my creativity and career. I love you. Thanks to Ty Murray for being a sounding board on this project (you have a great ear) and for your support. I love you. Thanks to Gloria Gabriel for all your help in organizing everything, from the demo phase on. Thanks to L.D. Thompson and David Owen Kniffen for your creativity and friendship. Thanks to Ahmet Ertegun for your advice. Much appreciation to Val Azzoli, Richard Bates, Danny Buch, Patti Conte, Steve Davis, Linda Ferrando, Andi Ferrara, Rick Froio, Peter Garvin, Andrea Ganis, Vicky Germaise, Laura Gold, Donna Jaffe, Fran Lichtman, Sharon Robertson, Nick Romei, Nikke Slight, Kevin Williamson and everyone else at Atlantic Records. Thanks to my dad and brothers for all their support. Thanks to Mark Goldenberg, Rick Nowels and Damien LeGassick for helping me demo songs in the early phases. Also thanks to Daniel Lanois, Flea and Stephen Perkins for a recording of The New Wild West that didn't end up on the record, though I was inspired by the ideas we came up with together. Also thanks for your friendship and support.

To my wonderful support team - Thomas, Julie, Keith, Francesca, Colleen, Cambria, Bridget, West, Alan, Ken, Berne and the gang - you truly are the difference.

Special thanks to Eric Greenspan, legal counsel; Rick Raskin and everyone at Creative Artists Agency; Neil Warnock; Chad Farmer and everyone at The Lambesis Agency.

Note To Fans
Well, it's been a while since my last record. At the end of touring Spirit, I was a worn-out little chick singer. I vowed to go back to the woods to hole up, sleep and write songs. The time off went a long way in refueling my love of songwriting and music. By the time I made This Way, I finally felt like I had the desire to tackle making a record, and to push myself in my writing and music. And to tour again. This time I hope to take small breaks along the way to get back to the woods, so I don't have to take two years off at the end of touring this CD!

Higher Ground for Humanity's Clearwater Project
Lenedra and I started the Clearwater Project when we saw communities all over the world struggling with debilitating water-related health problems. We discovered that the lack of clean drinking water is the number one health epidemic in the world.

Knowing we could make a difference, we established an organization to support the installation of water treatment and preservation systems around the world. Last year alone, the Clearwater Project provided water to over ten thousand people in twelve countries on four continents. Everyone should have access to clean water and we're more determined than ever to make it possible. If you want to get involved, visit

This way is the right direction
Review written by John Fitzgerald, June 2nd, 2005

I must admit, I'm not overly familiar with Ms. Kilcher's previous work but from what I've read "This way" is more commercial that "Spirit" was but less acoustic than "Pieces of you" was though the last 2 tracks "Grey matter" & "Sometimes it be that way" (which are billed as "bonus tracks" on the CD but I have yet to see a version of this album that DOESN'T have these tracks) were recorded live and are similar sounding to the "Pieces of you" material. However, although the lyrics are somewhat quirky (referring to Tom Hanks movies etc.), they are more "family friendly" than those on certain "Pieces of you" tracks. "Grey matter" is the one closer sounding to "Pieces of you" material and it's the better of the two, though not as crystalline and dramatic, though the "family" lyrics help on lightening the atmosphere. Although "Sometimes it be that way" isn't as effective, it is fun to listen to it after learning via the liner notes that the false start was due to Jewel forgetting the lyrics so it was a nifty "cover" on her part though at least she admits it! In contrast, the rockers work best on the album "itself" as the strumming opener "Standing still" has a great hook which gallops nicely alongside the cold electric guitar jabs on the choruses. The title track is similar to "Standing still" in it's feel though it needs to grow on you more with listens than "Standing still" does. The song Bekka is on, "Everybody needs someone sometime" is a grower of a pop tune which brings back the quirky lyrics (such as "he looked like a potato shoved in to jeans") and you can hear Bekka better as the song goes along but not in a big way as she's not THAT "out front" on the mix as there are 2 other backing vocalists to contend with here. The quirky lyrics continue on "Love me, just leave me alone" ("your daddy was a cigarette, you ain't nothing but a turtleneck" etc.) which is a furious rocker starting in slide acoustic guitar delta blues style mood which builds in to punchy chorus power riffs obviously influenced by Dann Huff's production on that one. In fact, a slight blues feel is present in this track which sure is a surprise, wonderfully executed. Another passable uptempo number is "Do you want to play?" which is basically pop with ragged guitars towards the chorus nearing the track to rock avenues with a good hook. Other uptempos don't work as well as these though. "Jesus loves you" is a funk builder but doesn't employ a good hook, "Serve the ego" doesn't have a good hook either but it's instrumentation works pretty well (such as the bongos on the verses and those familiar by now electric guitars come in on the choruses) though thematically this song reminds me of The Police tune "Message in a bottle". The ballads generally don't work though "Break me" is an obvious exception, understated by acoustic guitar and piano nicely, it could be seen as corny and unoriginal by some but I find it sensitive with an emotionally heartfelt vulnerability. "Till we run out of road" is one of the slower tunes but just doesn't add up, "Cleveland" starts out as an acoustic ditty but a forced funk feel takes over which doesn't help matters, "I won't walk away" is an another acoustic song which does have a mesmerizing, dramatic feel to it but once again, lacks a successful hook and "The new wild west" tries to be anthemic and dramatic with string undertones but thematically ends up sounding more like Neil Young's "Old man" (though mostly at the beginning). If this is apparently the "middle ground" effort for Jewel, then I will say that the good rockers (and "Break me" for the "ballads") make it worthwhile and as there seems to be differing opinions on this album, I'd still say it's worth a chance anyways as you may like some of the ones I didn't (and vice versa).
