Rickie Lee Jones To Perform At Grunin Center

Rickie Lee Jones To Perform At Grunin Center

(TOMS RIVER, NJ) -- Two-time Grammy winner Rickie Lee Jones exploded onto the pop scene in 1978 and has made a career of fearlessly experimenting with her sound and persona on more than 15 critically acclaimed albums. She brings her show “An Intimate Evening with Rickie Lee Jones” to the Jay and Linda Grunin Center for the Arts on Friday, February 22 at 8:00pm.  

Rolling Stone magazine put the cultural phenom on its cover twice in two years, and Saturday Night Live gave her an unprecedented three songs for her second appearance. Jones 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, was written and recorded, and is rooted, in the city of New Orleans, where Jones lives on the opposite side of the street made famous by Tennessee Williams. Produced by John Porter, of Roxy Music, and Mark Howard, this is the first new music Jones has written in over a decade.

“This work is inspired by many years of sitting with all the events of my life until I had something to paint with,” Jones remarked. “I came to New Orleans to write and to live a different way than what I have known in 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.”

Tickets: $39–$49. (This event is not eligible for the Buy More, Save More Grunin Presents Subscription.)

The Grunin Center is located on the OCC Main Campus, College Drive, Toms River, NJ.
