About Rickie Lee Jones

Few artists who rose to fame in the '70s sounded as individual and eclectic as Rickie Lee Jones. A lyricist whose work reflected the influences of beat poets, a composer who could weave jazz, folk, and R&B into songs with a distinct pop sensibility, and a vocalist with an expressive and smoky instrument, she made a splash in 1979 with her self-titled debut album, a set that earned critical praise and clicked with mainstream listeners thanks to the hit single "Chuck E's in Love." Jones soon expanded on her stylistic repertoire, adding rock and soul flavors to the mix and also spreading her wings as an interpretive vocalist. Whatever direction she chooses to follow, her work always reflects her personal connection with the music and an uncompromising creative vision.
