Hartt & Soul Productions Presents: Benefitting One World
Rickie Lee Jones
Show Time : 7:00 PM
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. 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. Jones’ latest album The Other Side of Desire (2015) was written, recorded, and rooted in the city of New Orleans, and the accolades it received upon release proves she is still a force to be reckoned with. Jones is both a character in the songs and the songwriter singing, defying convention with her sometimes brazen sexuality and the mixed bag of jazz, rock and what has come to be known as “confessional” songwriter performances.
