Multi-Grammy Award Winner – Norah Jones

Born Geetali Norah Jones Shankar

Norah Jones first rose to fame with her 2002 debut album Come Away With Me. Her unique piano style blends elements of jazz, country, and soul music genres.

Sue Jones and Ravi Shankar divorced when she was still young, leading her mother, Barbara, to raise her in Grapevine, Texas with musical influences from Sue’s record collection. Later attending Interlochen Arts Camp before eventually attending University of North Texas for study of jazz piano which earned her two Down Beat Magazine Student Music Awards – twice!

Norah Jones may be best known as a pop artist, yet she remains true to her classical roots, creating albums with her signature sound. Additionally, she has collaborated with artists such as Ray Charles and Ryan Adams.

Her debut album Come Away With Me

Norah Jones made waves worldwide with her debut album, Come Away With Me. It earned eight Grammy awards including Album of the Year and Best New Artist. This week marks a special remastered edition featuring demos submitted to producer Arif Mardin prior to signing with Blue Note as well as her initial session recordings with Blue Note.

Jones released her second album, Feels Like Home, as a more subdued and intimate work which showcased her silky voice against jazz-influenced acoustics. For Not Too Late she took an active part in all aspects of song creation – including writing each and every track herself!

She has won nine GRAMMYs and sold more than 53 million albums globally. Anoushka Shankar, her half sister, remains close.

Her second album Feels Like Home

Norah Jones’ sophomore effort, Feels Like Home, goes beyond the sophisticated pop that played host to middle-class dinner parties in her debut. Instead, this record features intimate songs steeped with nostalgic influences that span decades back into time.

Jones may not have completely disproved the notion that jazz means singing slowly with low voice, yet she has found more nuanced ways of discussing loss, uncertainty and protest / defiance on this album.

Highlights of her album include an acoustic rendition of Duke Ellington’s melody “Melancholia” and her piano pedal soul rendition of “Just Wanna Dance.” Robert Glasper from Wilco is among her backing musicians.

Her third album Not Too Late

Norah Jones has always taken risks. This can be seen from her albums and concerts. With time, her songwriting may become even more creative; her vocal range allows for varied genres; she studied at the University of North Texas where she won two Down Beat Student Music Awards.

Not Too Late is her third album and showcases her maturity; its songs reflect more genuine songwriting as she expresses her true taste and ideas more directly. There are lazy country-rockers, quirky waltzes, laid back funk tracks like Wish I Could and even half-note elisions reminiscent of Madeleine Peyroux or Diane Krall that can be found throughout.

Her latest album Pick Me Up Off the Floor

Norah Jones has collaborated with numerous musicians, including Foo Fighters on their 2005 album In Your Honor and Ryan Adams’ band The Cardinals on “Virginia Moon”. Additionally, she appears as an actress in Wong Kar-wai’s Blueberry Nights film.

Jones ventures deeper emotional waters on her seventh studio album, Pick Me Up Off the Floor. Each track is connected by subtle grooves and piano trios that nod toward darkness but always end up finding light at some point in its journey.

This album‘s title refers to an age of “visions,” and many tracks on it express feelings of freedom and acceptance. Additionally, some experiments explore more personal territory such as “Flame Twin” (breakup funk) or the acoustic tribute “Heaven Above,” with Jones’ piano playing ranging from delicate one moment to deeply reflective another.
