Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Musician, vocalist and songwriter Nora Jones became an overnight sensation at the age of 22 when her debut album, Come Away with Me, soared up the charts and swept the Grammy Awards. The album and its two successors proved to record executives that audiences were ready for a sophisticated alternative to flashy, fleshy female pop singers. Jones' sound included elements of jazz, '70s singer/songwriters, and classic country, but she was also a frequent collaborator with artists as diverse as Ray Charles and the Foo Fighters. At any given time, she was involved in several surprising side projects that expressed her versatility and talent in every area of music creation and production. Film director Wong Kar-Wai saw something else in the gorgeous ingénue as well, casting the untrained actress in the starring role of his film, "My Blueberry Nights," which opened the Cannes Film Festival in the spring of 2007.
