The announcement included this brief bio of Jones: “Norah Jones first emerged on the world stage with the February 2002 release of Come Away With Me, her self-described ‘moody little record’ that introduced a singular new voice and grew into a global phenomenon, sweeping the 2003 Grammy Awards. Since then, Norah has sold 50 million albums worldwide and become a nine-time Grammy winner. She has released a series of critically acclaimed and commercially successful solo albums—Feels Like Home (2004), Not Too Late (2007), The Fall (2009), Little Broken Hearts (2012) and Day Breaks (2016)—as well as albums with her collective bands Puss N Boots, the Little Willies and El Madmo.

Check out tour information and purchase tickets for hundreds of artists.

“The 2010 compilation …Featuring Norah Jones showcased her incredible versatility by collecting her collaborations with artists as diverse as Willie Nelson, Outkast, Herbie Hancock and Foo Fighters. With Day Breaks, Norah returned to her jazz roots while also proving her to be this era’s quintessential American artist, the purveyor of an unmistakably unique sound that weaves together the threads of several bedrock styles of American music: country, folk, rock, soul, jazz. Most recently, Jones has released a series of eclectic singles including collaborations with artists and friends such as Mavis Staples, Jeff Tweedy, Thomas Bartlett, Tarriona Tank Ball, Rodrigo Amarante and Brian Blade. The 2019 singles collection Begin Again gathered seven snapshots of creativity from one of the music world’s most versatile and consistently intriguing artists.”
