Two-time Grammy winner Rickie Lee Jones exploded onto the pop scene in 1978 and has made a career of fearlessly experimenting with her sound and persona over 15 critically acclaimed albums.
America’s leading boho pop star, thanks to her hit “Chuck E.’s in Love” from her critically acclaimed album Pirates, Rickie Lee Jones is one of the songwriting greats. Her vocals are utterly unique. Her voice is clear and bright, jazzy and moody, and she always delivers an exciting and memorable live concert experience.
A cultural phenomenon (Rolling Stone magazine put her on its cover twice in two years, and Saturday Night Live gave her an unprecedented three songs for her second appearance), Rickie is both a character in the songs and the songwriter singing. She defies convention with her sometimes brazen sexuality and mixed bag of jazz and rock tunes as well as her authentic songwriter performances.
Rickie Lee’s tour marks her first in-person performances following the release of her acclaimed memoir, Last Chance Texaco. New York Times says of the book, “As rich and colorful as Jones’’s best lyrics. It’s a classically American picaresque tale, a recounting of a life in which she “lived volumes. She reads as a modern Huck Finn.”
“From her 1979 debut onward, Rickie Lee Jones has proved to be an original, mixing beatnik-based poetic sensibilities with R&B, jazz, folk, and pop. Most of her commercial success came at the outset of her career, but a restless creative spirit — combined with a stubborn refusal to fit comfortably into any one musical niche — sealed her ultimate destiny as that of a highly regarded cult heroine.”
Fiery anthems and tumultuous confessional songs punctuated with raw, inspired guitar.”
