Bio

Born Geetali Norah Jones Shankar in New York City on March 30, 1979, she was destined for greatness right from the start. Her father was legendary Indian musician, Ravi Shankar, and her mother, Sue Jones, was a dancer whose love of music left its lasting impression on her gifted spirit.

At the age of four, Norah moved with her mother to a Dallas suburb, where she grew into a woman, beautiful in both form and character. She began singing in church choirs, learned to play the piano and guitar, and even briefly tried her hand at the alto saxophone. She attended Interlochen Arts Camp, Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts in Dallas, Texas, and the University of North Texas, where she majored in jazz piano, and won Best Student Music Awards for Best Jazz Vocalist (twice, in 1996 and 1997) and Best Original Composition (1996). At the age of sixteen - with her father's blessing - she officially shortened her name to Norah Jones, the name by which she is now known to her legion of fans.
