Musicians find inspiration in all sorts of places, like childhood memories, current events, romantic relationships. 

But L.A.-based singer/songwriter Jill Sobule's latest album was fueled by something she found in her junk drawer. A vintage bracelet with little charms:  a horse, the statue of liberty, an airplane. 

Sobule's latest record,"Dottie's Charms," marks her first concept album. While she was in studio she also played a live version of "My Chair" off the album.

By the way, Jill is on a search to find Dottie, the original owner of the bracelet. Maybe you can help her out
