Nine time Grammy winner Norah Jones burst onto the scene in 2002 with Come Away With Me an album that combined jazz, folk and blues into a mix that sold over 27 million copies worldwide.
Jones grew up in New York, daughter of concert producer Sue Jones and Indian musician Ravi Shankar. Developing a love for jazz, Jones attended the University of North Texas, majoring in jazz piano and connecting with musicians who would form the core of her future musical groups.
Returning to New York, Jones recorded with the Peter Malick Group before releasing her Come Away With Me album. Based on that album, Jones received eight Grammy nominations in 2003, winning five.
Norah Jones continued her successful jazz centered career, winning Billboards top jazz recording artist for the decade of 2000-2009. During the same time frame, Jones branched out forming the alt-country group The Little Willies with her University of North Texas friends, and also contributing to the Hank Williams Project, a Bob Dylan led effort to record Hank Williams lyrics for which the author had not completed the music.
Working with two other Brooklyn musicians, Jones formed Puss N Boots as a vehicle to explore different music. Initially intended as a club band, the group has endured with five albums and a song on the new Neal Casal tribute collection.
