Rickie Lee Jones

Rickie Lee Jones (born November 8, 1954) is a US vocalist, songwriter. Born in Chicago, she grew up in a fractured and dysfunctional family setting. As a teen, Rickie became involved in substance abuse and ran away from home. She settled down in Los Angeles where she waited tables and played at local clubs. In 1979, Warner Brothers noticed her and signed her up for her first record - Rickie Lee Jones (1979). The hit single Chuck E's in Love made Rickie a commercial and critical hit. She was nominated for a Grammy in 1980 for that album. Since her stunning debut, Rickie has released several albums but none of them took off like her first. Rickie has one daughter from her relationship with French musician Pascal Nabet Meyer. Rickie is involved in left wing politics.
