Jewell began her musical career when she began busking on the streets of Sante Fe while attending college. She then moved to Los Angeles and performed on the streets of Venice Beach. Jewell moved to Massachusetts and began performing at local music clubs.
In December 2005, Jewell recorded a "live demo" album called Nowhere in Time and later recorded the album Boundary County with Jason Beek on percussion, Daniel Kellar on violin, Jerry Glenn Miller on guitars and Johnny Sciascia on upright bass.
