I was acknowledged today of the first trailer for her new album which releases on June 23rd, 2015. The album was recorded in Rickie Lee Jones hometown of New Orleans.
I can only imagine the emotional rollercoaster it has been for Rickie Lee Jones as she fights to perpetuate her art in this digital music age. This is particularly clear when the video juxtaposes her first hit single, “Chuck E.’s In Love” with her present life. I respect her anger with a music industry that attempts to limit her role as a vital American musician.
Thank God we can elevate her by funding this valuable recording project. I hope you will share in my enthusiasm for Rickie Lee Jones compositions. Her contributions as a singer/songwriter merit our respect and admiration.
I noticed that Rickie Lee Jones will be touring in support of The Other Side of Desire. She is slated to perform at Infinity Hall in Hartford, Connecticut on August 27th, 2015. We have not been to the new Infinity Hartford yet. This looks like the event that will get us there.
