With her unique blend of Pop, Jazz and Country, Norah Jones has made a career for herself that rivals that of her legendary father.
Born in New York in 1979, she is the daughter of legendary Sitar performer and friend of The Beatles Ravi Shankar who obviously passed down some of his immense musical talent. A fan of Jazz from an early age, she went on to attend the University of North Texas, majoring in Jazz Piano and meeting future musical partner, Jesse Harris along the way.
She soon headed back to New York and was picked up by legendary Jazz Label 'Blue Note Records' who released her first album 'Come Away With Me' in 2002. It was a huge critical and commercial success, eventually hitting number one in the Billboard Charts before earning Grammy Awards for, amongst others, Album and Record of the year.
The success of her follow up 'Feels Like Home' earned her, not only a place atop the Billboard charts once again, but a spot on Time Magazine's list of 'Most Influential People of 2004'. And of course it picked up a few more Grammy awards along the way.
Her successes continued with the release of each subsequent album, even when she broke from her regular formula such as in the case of '&Featuring', a compilation of numerous collaborations with the likes of the Foo Fighters and Outkast.
Norah has made a career for herself that carries on the rich musical heritage bestowed upon her from her father and shows no signs of slowing up anytime soon.
