Jewels knew the five of them were a perfect fit. "I'm nothing without my band", she says.
"I am truly blessed to work with such gifted, dedicated musicians!"

Jewels started out singing in the local choir of her hometown, where she sometimes returns; she cultivated her raw vocals in multitude of bands in different genres both in Quebec and here in Toronto, Ontario.
