Early life[edit] Jones was born Geetali Norah Shankar on March 30, 1979 in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, New York, to American concert producer Sue Jones and Indian musician Ravi Shankar.[9][10] After her parents separated in 1986, Norah lived with her mother, growing up in Grapevine, Texas. She attended Cross Timbers Middle School and Grapevine High School
Grapevine High School
before transferring to Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts in Dallas. While in high school, she sang in the school choir, participated in band, and played the alto saxophone. At the age of sixteen, with both parents' consent, she officially changed her name to Norah Jones.[1][9] Jones always had an affinity for the music of Bill Evans
Bill Evans
and Billie Holiday, among other "oldies". She once said, "My mom had this eight-album Billie Holiday
Billie Holiday
set; I picked out one disc that I liked and played that over and over again".[11] As a child, Jones began singing in church and also took piano and voice lessons. She still attends church. She considers herself spiritual and appreciates the rituals of her church but does not consider herself deeply religious.[12] She attended Interlochen Center for the Arts
Interlochen Center for the Arts
during the summers. While at high school, she won the Down Beat

Student Music Awards for Best Jazz

Vocalist (twice, in 1996 and 1997) and Best Original Composition (1996).[13] Jones attended the University of North Texas
University of North Texas
(UNT), where she majored in jazz piano and sang with the UNT Jazz
Jazz
Singers. During this time, she had a chance meeting with future collaborator Jesse Harris. She gave a ride to a band playing at the university whose members happened to be friends of Harris. He was on a cross-country road-trip with friend and future Little Willies member Richard Julian, and stopped to see the band play. After meeting Jones, Harris started sending her lead sheets of his songs. In 1999, Jones left Texas for New York City. Less than a year later, she started a band with Harris, and her recordings with them were bestsellers.[14] Musical career[edit] 2000: The Peter Malick
Peter Malick
Group Session, New York City[edit] As artist Peter Malick
Peter Malick
states in the liner notes, "I started looking for a singer who could record [my latest songs] for me. On a Tuesday night, I walked into the Living Room just as the singer announced the last song of the set. The Dinah Washington classic "Since I Fell for You" filled the room and I was struck breathless. Here, in the tradition of Billie Holiday, was a stunningly beautiful, blues infused voice. This was my first contact with Norah Jones." Peter would ask Norah to sit in on sessions at Room 9 from Outer Space in South Boston, Massachusetts, during August and September 2000. Together, they recorded the Malick-penned songs "New York City", "Strange Transmissions", and "Deceptively Yours", along with covers of "All Your Love" (Sam Maghett), and "Heart of Mine" (Bob Dylan). These songs would become the album The Peter Malick

After moving to New York City, Jones signed to Blue Note Records, a label owned by EMI
EMI
Group. The signing came as an indirect result of Jones performing as lead singer for the JC Hopkins

Biggish Band. Shell White, then the wife of JC Hopkins, worked for EMI Publishing
EMI Publishing
and passed Jones's three-track demo on to the label's president Bruce Lundvall and its A&R Brian Bacchus. The demo featured two jazz standards and a song by Jesse Harris.[16] Lundvall and Bacchus immediately agreed Jones had great potential. Although initially unsure about what direction her music would follow, particularly since Blue Note was a jazz label, they decided to sign Jones. Bacchus told HitQuarters: "We let her find her own direction.... We knew that if she could develop her songwriting and we could find great songs, it would work."[16] Jones was first teamed up with experienced producer and engineer Jay Newland. Bacchus thought that Newland's experience in jazz, blues, rock, country and folk would give him a "feeling for her sound."[16] Together they cut around nine demo tracks, of which six formed her debut Blue Note release, the sampler First Sessions, while the rest were set aside for her debut album.[16] First Sessions was released in 2001. Jones was a lounge singer before becoming a recording artist.[17] Prior to releasing her first album, she performed with Wax Poetic, Peter Malick
Peter Malick
and jazz guitarist Charlie Hunter.[18][19][20] Released in February 2002, Jones's debut album, Come Away with Me, was celebrated for its blending of mellow, acoustic pop with soul and jazz.[citation needed] Debuting at No. 139, it reached No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard 200. The single "Don't Know Why" hit No. 1 on the Top 40 Adult Recurrents in 2003 and No. 30 in the Billboard Hot 100 Singles Chart. In 2003, she was nominated for eight and ultimately won five Grammy Awards: Best New Artist, Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album, Record of the Year

and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance

for "Don't Know Why" at the 45th Grammy Awards. This matched the record for most Grammy wins by a female artist in a single night (tying with Lauryn Hill and Alicia Keys). That night, Jesse Harris won the Grammy Award for Song of the Year for composing "Don't Know Why", Arif Mardin
Arif Mardin
won Producer of the Year, primarily for his work on Come Away With Me, and the album also received the Grammy Award for Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical.[5] The album received platinum certification by the Recording Industry Association of America on August 22, 2002, and went on to become a Diamond album on February 15, 2005.[21] 2004–2006: Feels Like Home and collaboration with Ray Charles[edit] Main article: Feels Like Home ( Norah Jones

Jones in 2007

Jones released her third album, Not Too Late, on January 30, 2007. The album was the first for which she wrote or co-wrote every song. She has said some of these songs are much darker than those on her previous albums.[27] Not Too Late was mostly recorded at Jones' home studio. It is her first album without producer Arif Mardin, who died in the summer of 2006. Jones described the sessions as "fun, relaxed and easy" and without a deadline; Blue Note executives reportedly did not know she was recording an album. The song "My Dear Country" is political commentary; she wrote it before the United States Presidential election day in 2004. Not Too Late reached the No. 1 position in twenty countries. Not Too Late had the third-best first week of sales in 2007, behind Avril Lavigne's The Best Damn Thing
The Best Damn Thing
and Linkin Park's Minutes to Midnight. It reached No. 1 in the U.S., selling 405,000 copies. EMI announced that Not Too Late reached gold, platinum or multi-platinum in 21 countries as of February 2007.[28] The album has sold 4 million copies worldwide.

documentary The War.[29][30] Jones made her film debut in 2007 in the romance/drama film My Blueberry Nights, directed by Wong Kar Wai, co-starring Jude Law, David Strathairn, Rachel Weisz

Ward, and others. Jones said, "It's so exciting and flattering and fun when I get asked to sing with somebody that I admire.... It takes you a little bit out of your comfort zone when you're doing something with another artist. You don't know what to expect—it's kind of like being a little kid and having a playdate." The 18-track Blue Note disc was released on November 16, 2010.[33] Jones recorded a Christmas duet, "Home for the Holidays", with Cyndi Lauper. 2012–2015: Little Broken Hearts[edit] Main article: Little Broken Hearts After working with Danger Mouse and Daniele Luppi on some of the tracks of their album Rome, Jones teamed up with Danger Mouse for her fifth studio album, Little Broken Hearts, which was released on May 1, 2012.[34] Jones played the album at SXSW 2012 in its entirety.[35] American Songwriter has referred to Little Broken Hearts

as the "most dramatic and rewarding departure she's made in her career."[36] On May 25, 2012, Jones kicked off her fifth world tour in Paris. Her tour included stops in Europe, North America, Asia, South America, and Australia. Jones performed in London at the Roundhouse on September 10, 2012, as part of the iTunes Festival lineup.

The album, which features nine new songs and three covers, was released on October 7, 2016.

Jones said the goal of this record was to do everything live. She said in an interview with Billboard: "When you have great musicians, there's no reason to overdub. That strips the soul out of the music." [40] Band members[edit]
