Biography

A voice without limit, a singer without borders for whom music is an aesthetic both auditory and visual. An improvising singer, following in the footsteps of Betty Carter, her mentor, and Abbey Lincoln, she invites her audience on a journey of words, rhythm and melody, “Rhythmelodics” as John Stevens, the English percussionist, concisely described it. Sometimes “standards”, sometimes songs without words, sometimes poetry, children’s airs, all are noble passengers on this journey. A powerful, soft, energetic, subtle, joyous, deep voice, rich with memory, this is Gwendolyn Jewel.

She received her BA from the University of Houston, a AGSM certificate from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London, and her doctorate from the University of Life.
