I’ve written another review for The Talkhouse – this time it’s Rickie Lee Jones’ new album The Other Side of Desire. I’ll tell you up front, it’s a heartbreakingly honest and beautiful album by an artist whose work I’ve respected, admired and loved since I was twenty-one. What’s most meaningful to me, though, is Rickie Lee’s response at the end of the review. I’m honored. You can read the review, and her comments here.
Other pieces I’ve written for The Talkhouse include a Valentine’s Day essay on why it’s so hard to write a good love song and a review of Mark Knopfler‘s new album, Tracker.
