Rickie Lee Jones at Alys Stephens

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. 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."
