To mark 25 years since the release of her iconic album Pieces of You, Jewel spoke about her rise to fame.

‘I turned to songwriting to break a habit of shoplifting. I was shoplifting, mostly food. I realised I would end up in jail or dead if I didn’t do something about it.’

Jewel went on to say: ‘That record was just medicine for me. I never thought I would get to be able to be a songwriter for a living.’ 

‘The record was considered a failure in the first year then Bob Dylan took me on tour with him. He believed in what I did, went over my songs and asked me why I wrote certain lyrics.’
