Grammy Winner Rickie Lee Jones to Perform at WHBPAC, 5/24
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. Her latest album The Devil You Know is produced by Ben Harper and reimagines the music of Jagger / Richards, Neil Young and more, and is planning to release an album of new music in 2014.
