Rickie Lee Jones – Confessional

For those not lucky enough to attend Byron Bluesfest next April, it looks like a little bit of Bluesfest will be coming to you!

Two-time Grammy Award winner Rickie Lee Jones exploded onto the music scene in 1979 with her jazz-flavoured single Chuck E’s In Love.

2017 will see Jones bring her ‘confessional’ performance to the Tanks with this official Bluesfest sideshow on the 13th of April 2017.

With 15 critically acclaimed albums to her name, Jones continues to fearlessly experiment with her sound in what can only be described as a mixed bag, recording in musical styles including rock, R&B, blues, pop, soul and jazz.

Jones is undoubtedly a character, both lyrically and in performance, defying convention over her 5 decade career with her sometimes brazen sexuality.

Her latest album, The Other Side of Desire, was written, recorded and rooted in New Orleans, where she lives. Described as an arrestingly ambitious musical journey, rich in sonic adventure and detail, it would seem Jones is showing no signs of slowing down.
