Pop singer Marti Jones first emerged as the frontwoman of the group Color Me Gone before issuing her solo debut Unsophisticated Time -- produced by future husband Don Dixon -- in 1985. Though the recipient of widespread critical acclaim, Jones found little commercial success with LPs like 1986's Match Game (recorded with guests Mitch Easter, T-Bone Burnett, and Darlene Love) and 1988's Used Guitars (featuring contributions from Marshall Crenshaw and Janis Ian), and she was dropped by her label, A&M. After signing to RCA for 1990's Any Kind of Lie, Jones disappeared from sight before signing to Sugar Hill and returning in 1996 with a pair of new releases, Live at Spirit Square and My Long-Haired Life. In 2002 her album My Tidy Doily Dream (another release produced by husband Don Dixon) appeared on the Dixon Archival Remnants label, but Jones subsequently focused much of her creative energy on painting, under the name Marti Jones Dixon. Lucky Stars: New Lullabies for Old Souls, an album credited to the husband-and-wife duo of Marti Jones and Don Dixon, was made available for digital download in March 2008. ~ Jason Ankeny
