Norah Jones Tickets for Sale

There are certain singers whom we feel that we know, from the very first time we hear them. As the intimacy of their delivery and the subtle shading of their interpretation draw us in, a whole personality seems to take shape in our imagination. Norah Jones is that kind of singer. Her Blue Note debut album, Come Away With Me, offers a musicality and depth of feeling that would be uncommon in any era. In the present day, in a performer just 22 years of age, these qualities are truly remarkable.
Norah Jones (born March 30, 1979) is a multi-Grammy Award winning pianist and singer-songwriter whose career was launched with her successful 2002 debut album Come Away With Me, a jazz piano album with a soul/folk tinge, that sold 18 million copies worldwide and received 8 Grammy awards.

When Jones was 15, she and her mother moved from Grapevine to Dallas' central city, where Norah enrolled in Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts. (Soul singer Erykah Badu and trumpeter Roy Hargrove are also Washington alumni.)

Norah played her first gig on her 16th birthday, an open-mic night at a local coffeehouse, where she performed a version of I'll Be Seeing You that she'd learned from Etta James' treatment of this Billie Holiday favorite. While still in high school, Norah won the Down Beat Student Music Awards for Best Jazz Vocalist and Best Original Composition in 1996, and earned a second SMA for Best Jazz Vocalist in 1997. After graduation, Jones entered the University of North Texas, nationally renowned for its music programs, where she majored in jazz piano. She also sang with a band called Laszlo, playing what she describes as "dark, jazzy rock."

In the summer of 1999, Norah accepted a friend's offer of a summer sublet in Greenwich Village. She came to Manhattan and never returned to North Texas State. "The music kept me here. The music scene is so huge, I found it very exciting. I especially enjoyed hearing amazing songwriters at little places like The Living Room. Everything opened up for me." For about a year beginning in December 1999, Norah appeared regularly with the funk-fusion band Wax Poetic (now signed to Atlantic). But she soon assembled her own group with Jesse Harris, Lee Alexander, and Dan Rieser. In October 2000, this lineup recorded a selection of demos for Blue Note Records. On the strength of these recordings and a live showcase, Jones was signed to Blue Note in January 2001. Norah sang two songs (Roxy Music's More Than This and Day Is Done by Nick Drake) on guitarist Charlie Hunter's Blue Note album Songs from the Analog Playground, and has frequently performed live with Hunter's group.
Jones performs frequently with guitarist Charlie Hunter. Her music is often compared to that of Billie Holiday and Nina Simone.

Norah Jones walked away from the Grammy Awards of 2003 with 8 awards, including Best New Artist. In 2004, Jones released her highly anticipated follow-up album, Feels Like Home. Pairing once again with producer Arif Mardin, Jones pursued a similar approach to Come Away With Me, mixing '70s singer/songwriter-style tracks with blues, country, and her own mellow take on piano jazz. Rather than repeat the softer mood of Come Away With Me, her second album was more influenced by country music. Within a week of its release, Feels Like Home had sold over a million copies. In that same year, TIME magazine listed Jones among the Most Influential People of 2004.
