On Wednesday, April 29 at 7:30 p.m. Rickie Lee Jones will perform at the King Center for Performing Arts. Tickets will go on sale on February 14 at 12 p.m. CLICK HERE FOR TICKETS.

Rickie Lee Jones is the most iconic American female singer-songwriter of her time. Her artistry is brilliantly underlined with her 2019 album Kicks. The album spans two decades of pop, rock and jazz, presenting her unique and sophisticated interpretations of songs that were pivotal to her musical journey.

Rickie Lee’s song, “Easy Money,” was recorded by Lowell George, the founder of the band, Little Feat. Shortly thereafter, Warner Brothers auditioned Jones and quickly signed her to the label.

Her 1979 debut Rickie Lee Jones, won the Grammy for “Best New Artist.”

She was hailed by one critic as a “highly touted new pop-jazz-singer-songwriter” and another critic as “one of the best–if not the best–artist of her generation.”

In addition to the album’s brilliant songs including the exceptional “On Saturday Afternoons in 1963,” the haunting “Last Chance Texaco,” and the popular “Chuck E’s in Love,” she was becoming a figure whose life was bearing a great deal of emulation by young women and men who found her to be a model for the new generation of hipster.

Her second release, Pirates, was instantly hailed as one of the great albums of all time, garnering the elusive 5-star review and a second cover in Rolling Stone. Rickie Lee Jones seemed to be able to do anything the boys could do, and on her own terms.

Before Rickie Lee Jones, the genre of singer songwriter was derived entirely from the folk singers of the 50’s and 60’s. She brought jazz to the rock stage, a teenaged recklessness and a flair for drama. Her impact would be felt for years to come, as she has became one of the long unrecognized American treasures.
