‘The Duchess of Coolsville’
The songs of Rickie Lee Jones
Performed by Jessamae St James
Accompanied by Elizabeth Blackthorn

Becoming an overnight sensation in 1979 with the hit ‘Chuck E’s In Love’ and the release of her first album, Rickie Lee Jones burst onto the scene with her bohemian blend of pop, blues and jazz and her signature beat poetry-influenced lyrics.

With a career spanning over three decades and fifteen albums, Jessamae St James focuses on the early years of 'The Duchess of Coolsville', performing songs from Rickie Lee Jones’ first two albums and sharing the stories that inspired them.

'...the main event is St James' voice. It's a versatile and dramatic instrument that can easily recalibrate itself, and seems just as suited to phlegmatic Weimar-style sprechgesang as it is to the full-throated stylings that echo the great Shirley Bassey. - Cameron Woodhead, The Age.

'St. James is a powerhouse vocalist...she refuses to be a one-trick pony...' - samesame.com.au
