Rickie Lee’s extensive career has seen her work with some of the industry’s greatest stars. Her interpretation of jazz, elecontrica, trip-hop, country and many other genres have earnt her great acclaim.
Dazzling like an unusual yet mesmerising gem, Rickie Lee Jones writes songs and sings them with the sharp, crystalline beauty of a true artist. From the sinuous pop/jazz hit Chuck E’s in Love from 1979, recorded when she was 21, Rickie Lee became a star that stood outside all musical movements. Called by The Dutchess of Coolsville by Time magazine, her musical journey through three decades has been fascinating, from her own distinct take on jazz standards to electronica, trip-hop and plaintive acoustic pieces. A collaborator with Dr John, Tom Waits, Leo Kottke, Lyle Lovett and Steely Dan’s Walter Becker, she has enjoyed an artistic renaissance in recent years, with her poignant song observations enjoying critical acclaim.
