Born on March 30, 1979, Nora Jones is a soulful jazz singer and one of the most influential musicians of the 2000-2009 decade. Daughter of sitar great Ravi Shankar, Jones’s seductive voice has captivated audiences of all ages and can be often heard near candlelit baths. Without sticking to a specific genre, she has sold over 50 million albums worldwide.
After leaving her first band Wax Poetic, in 2002 Jones headed out on her own and released Come Away with Me. The record received an abundance of critical and commercial acclaim. Jones’s heart-warming songs “Don’t Know Why” and “Come Away with Me” topped billboard charts for months. The album eventually sold over 22 million copies and won 5 Grammy awards. Although Jones had embarked on her solo career, she continued to play and record with Wax Poetic.
Two years later, the beautifully talented singer dropped her second album, Feels Like Home. The folksy record was the hottest item on music shelves and sold an astounding 1 million records in the first week. Jones toured afterwards promoting her new album and singing with Daru Oda. Later in 2004, Time Magazine named Nora Jones as one of the top 100 influential people of the year. In 2007, Jones released her highly anticipated third album, Not too Late. The record was much darker than her past works and she wrote or co-wrote all 13 songs. The piano playing princess did not miss a step, as the CD was the most pre-ordered album in Amazon history.
She toured for a while and then looked to Hollywood for other endeavors. After a short stint of acting, Jones returned to the studio with Danger Mouse, and in 2012 released her fourth album, Little Broken Hearts. The record had the same soulful sound and undeniably great instrumentation. Jones headed out immediately after the album dropped and kicked off a world tour in Paris. Today, the jazzy Jones still performs shows at random and continues to appear in major motion pictures. Jones appeared in the films Ted and Two Weeks’ Notice, while also performing on Dancing with the Stars and Good Morning America.
