Two-time Grammy winner Rickie Lee Jones exploded is known for her confessional songwriting and fearless musical experimentation.
Her latest album The Other Side of Desire was written, recorded and rooted in the city of New Orleans, where Jones lives on the opposite side of the street made famous by Tennessee Williams. Produced by John Porter (of Roxy Music) and Mark Howard, this is the first new music Jones has written in over a decade.
“Jones consciously honors the musical styles birthed within America's most sonically spectacular city…” - Ann Powers, NPR Music, read the review
“She sings like a shy person somehow released of inhibition by singing. Every word she writes and sings seems earned. Her songs are cunning and serious, or playful and exuberant, but always carefully made” - Alec Wilkinson, The New Yorker, read the review
