Not My Job: Singer-Songwriter Jewel Gets Quizzed On Jewel Thieves

Singer-songwriter Jewel appears on The Josh Wolf Show in June 2015 in Los Angeles, Calif.

Before she hit it big with her first album, Pieces of You in 1995, Jewel was living out of her car. Her big break came at Inner Change, a struggling San Diego coffee shop where she played a weekly show. She's written a memoir called Never Broken: Songs Are Only Half the Story.

We've invited Jewel to play a game called "We hope you sleep in a safe" — because when you're named Jewel, you have to watch out for jewel thieves.
