Since her 1979 self-titled debut album, Rickie Lee Jones has influenced various female artists for nearly 40 years. The Californian earned two Grammy wins for Best New Artist in 1980 and Best Jazz Vocal Performance, Duo or Group for "Makin' Whoopee" in 1990. Fellow jazz musician Madeleine Peyroux spent time performing with The Lost Wandering Blues and Jazz Band before embarking on a solo career with her 1996 debut album Dreamland. In 2007, she was named the Best International Jazz Artist at the BBC Jazz Awards. Both of these talented musicians will join forces for a massive North American tour in March.

The tour kicks off on March 1 inside Montreal's Theatre Maisonneuve, and it will make stops in New York City (Town Hall on March 4), Atlanta (Variety Playhouse on March 12), and Los Angeles (Luckman Fine Arts Center on March 18). After March 28, Rickie Lee Jones will go solo with performances in Iowa City, Austin, and Houston. Tour dates can be seen below. Tickets for these shows are on sale right now.
