Rickie Lee Jones Pens Career-Spanning Memoir: Rickie Lee Out Nov 14

Written by:

Grammy-Award winning singer/songwriter Rickie Lee Jones has announced the release date of her long-awaited memoir.

Titled Rickie Lee, the book is being published by Grove Atlantic.

“I am a life-long admirer of Rickie Lee Jones and her distinct musical and storytelling gifts,” says Grove Atlantic’s Editorial Director Elisabeth Schmitz in a press release announcing the memoir. “Her prose is every bit as fresh and surprising as the poetry of her song lyrics. It’s been a thrill to work with Rickie Lee on her extraordinary life story.”

The Chicago-born musician’s 1979 performance on “SNL” brought her immediately into public consciousness and since then, she’s been one of the most innovative and singular artists around.

Rickie Lee tells all the tales that make memoirs so hard to put down. Punctuated by never-before-told stories, the book covers Jones’ vaudevillian roots, her romantic union with Tom Waits, her working relationships with everyone from Steely Dan to Mike Watt (The Mintuemen, fIRHEHOSE), motherhood, misspent youth, the music business, family, life, love, loss and everything in between.

Rickie Lee will be out November 14.
