The popular singer-songwriter's dedication to her craft is apparent in her narration of CHASING DOWN THE DAWN. Taken from her journals, these vignettes unveil memories from Jewel's childhood in Alaska, her struggles studying her craft and working in the music industry, the intensity of life on the road, and her personal relationships. Just like her music, her prose is filled with a rhythm that comes through in her reading. Jewel narrates her stories with confidence and maturity, but without patronizing the listener. As the excerpts that are read take place at various times in her life and in different areas of the world, the transitions could have been improved with the use of music.
