Norah Jones – Not Too Late, Feels Like Home, Feels Like Home and Rome

Norah Jones quickly rose to stardom following the release of her debut album, Come Away With Me. Since then she has made waves by participating in roots-leaning side projects and working alongside contemporary artists like Billie Joe Armstrong, OutKast, Herbie Hancock and Danger Mouse.

She studied jazz piano at the University of North Texas, winning Down Beat Student Music Awards before making the move to New York.

Come Away With Me

With its soothing melody, soothing vocals, and desire for relief from daily life and romance in another person’s arms, this song has touched millions. The simple yet peaceful lyrics reflect an international need for comfort from another individual.

Norah Jones’ first album Come Away With Me was an unexpected and overwhelming success upon its release in February 2002, garnering two Grammy(r) awards and selling over 30 million copies worldwide.

This superdeluxe reissue commemorates the 20th anniversary of this timeless classic by including 22 previously unreleased tracks – including all first session demos sent to Blue Note as well as Allaire Studios original version of album.

Feels Like Home

Norah Shankar made her mark with the world with the release of her debut album Come Away With Me in 2002, an acoustic pop-jazz-country hybrid album featuring her smooth vocals as well as an all-star cast featuring bassist Lee Alexander, guitarist Jesse Harris and drummer Dan Rieser.

After graduating high school, Norah attended the University of North Texas where she studied jazz piano and sang with their Jazz Singers ensemble. Soon thereafter she moved to New York and soon began collaborating with musicians like Jesse Harris.

Not Too Late

Not Too Late is an invigorating call to turn climate-change-based concerns into activism. Edited by Rebecca Solnit (“the voice of resistance”) and Thelma Young Lutunatabua, this collection of essays by leading voices addresses political, scientific and social aspects of this pressing issue for humankind.

Solnit and coeditor Lutunatabua bring clear-eyed wisdom to this volume in four pieces they wrote themselves and in essays by writers from around the globe, such as Indigenous activists such as Julian Aguon from Guam; academics/organizers like Adrienne Maree Brown and Antonia Juhasz; as well as climate scientists.

The Fall

Norah Jones became widely popular following her meteoric rise to stardom. Unfortunately, some critics assumed she was simply capitalizing off of the legacy of her famous sitar virtuoso father Ravi; but with her 2002 debut album Come Away With Me and subsequent efforts like Feels Like Home, Not Too Late and The Fall she cemented herself as an artist of classic rendition.

Norah amps up her sound on The Fall with an eclectic mix of new material and older songs from both old and new collaborators like Ryan Adams (Okkervil River’s Will Sheff) as well as session musicians Joey Waronker and Marc Ribot – produced by Jacquire King (Kings of Leon, Tom Waits). Producer Jacquire King helped Norah broaden her sonic palette while keeping her signature sound intact.

Little Broken Hearts

Since Norah Jones rose to stardom with the mega-selling Come Away With Me album, her music has mostly stayed within comfortable boundaries. From roots-country collaborations with Little Willies or last year’s one-off project Rome, her musical palette remained modest and her production choices safe.

Little Broken Hearts was her breakthrough collaboration with Danger Mouse (Brian Burton). A darkly emotive album reminiscent of domestic drama soundtrack, Little Broken Hearts marked Norah Jones’ most exciting and ambitious work yet. Exploring betrayal and bad love while maintaining enough vitality to steer away from bloodless brunch music, Little Broken Hearts marked Norah Jones as an artist beyond any genre imaginable.

Pick Me Up Off the Floor

Norah Jones’ voice and emotive songwriting continue to be her strongest suit, be it singing about existential anxiety or the heartbreak of love lost. Her GRAMMY award winning, mega copy selling musical presence has won her millions of admirers and she remains beloved by listeners who appreciate her soothing melodies like an embrace.

Norah Jones’ seventh album marks her as a master of her genre while emphasizing both her voice and emotive lyrics as unique assets.

This album, unlike 2016’s Day Breaks, brings together country, folk rock and Great American Songbook sounds under Texan singer-songwriter Scott Axt’s remarkable smokey croon.


22 years ago, Norah Jones created an instant classic with “Don’t Know Why.” Since then, she has quietly amassed over 50 million albums sold and won nine Grammy Awards.

With Visions, 2020 co-producer of criminally overlooked Pick Me Up Off the Floor returns to Blue Note Records with her ninth studio album and first original material since then. It boasts sparse instrumentation from El Michels Affair band members led by multi-instrumentalist Leon Michels who provide unique guitar and keyboard timbres that evoke loose funk and retro-soul of Daptone Records.
