Rickie Lee Jones says
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. 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, 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.

Her second album Pirates is one of the seminal, most heralded recordings of pop music, with each song a cinematic journey through her breakdown and rise. Jones’ live performances have reached a pinnacle of honesty and excellence.

In 2015 she released a new album The Other Side of Desire. Of the album, Jones says, "Living down here in the south, traversing musical points where the rural meets the spiritual, from the joyful swamppop to the sudden carnival collaborations of piecemeal bands, poets, musicians on mystical railroad loading docks. I sleep and wake to the plaintiff song of the river boats and the freight trains, and my heart imagines their love affair. I gathered the fruits from the local trees, 99% of the people involved on the record live here, or work here much of the year."
