Finally. Rickie Lee Jones is coming back to Birmingham! The ASC is thrilled to present the Grammy-winning
singer-songwriter for an evening of musical reminiscing and exploration. 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. A cultural phenomenon, she graced the cover of Rolling Stone twice in two years, and performed an
unprecedented three songs during her second appearance on “Saturday Night Live.” Her latest album and first
new music in over a decade, The Other Side of Desire was written, recorded, and rooted in New Orleans. “This
work is inspired by many years of sitting with all the events of my life until I had something to paint with.
I came to New Orleans to write and to live a different way than what I have known on the West Coast ….
Here is another record then, made of my imagination, and whatever else that has no words, using
the clay of this place and the shapes of my eyes to form some kind of picture of my life, or my
heart, that I alone can understand, and hopefully that others can enjoy.”
“RICKIE LEE JONES HAS MADE A CAREER OUT OF SURPRISING PEOPLE ...
SHE NEVER DISAPPOINTS.” -The New York Times
