Rickie Lee Jones
Two-time Grammy winner Rickie Lee Jones will be making her Bluesfest debut in 2017. Rickie Lee Jones exploded onto the pop scene in 1979 and has made a career of fearlessly experimenting with her sound and persona over 15 critically acclaimed albums. 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 latest album The Other Side of Desire (2015) was written, recorded and rooted in the city of New Orleans, where Jones lives.
