Internet’s Most-Searched Norah Jones Discovers Ear Plugs

You know, this is not the first time that Norah Jones is climbing charts in that special effortless way of hers. It’s not the first time also she’s topping internet charts as one of the most searched and sought-after smooth jazz/soul artist around. She’s done that like three or four times already.

According to figures derived from search engines, the beautiful Norah Jones with her exotic features and all remains one of the hottest artists around, possibly fueled by sales of her classic of an album ‘Come Away With Me’.

What’s next up, then, for the quiet girl who’s managed to capture the attention of all without even trying? Norah Jones rocking out, perhaps?

She tells Blender magazine “I sure want to. I don’t know. Mostly, I just want to write more songs, and I don’t really know how to do it. I never got a routine down. The past few months, every time I get a free moment I just catch some snoozers.”

“I have” she concludes, “discovered the beauty of earplugs. They’re good.”

Norah Jones Finds Britney’s Dance Moves Pretty Stimulating, Plus More

Norah Jones isn’t your typical jazz kind of chanteuse. Without the slightest efforts, she’s captured listeners way outside jazz. How incredible is that, really?

If you haven’t picked yourself up a Norah Jones disc, then you really don’t know what you’re missing. Trust me, you don’t have to be a big fan of music like hers to enjoy what she has to offer. Thousands of critics and positive reviews can’t be wrong. This is what VH1 had to say of Norah’s abilites. “Sensual, carefree, forlorn and yet cool, it simply wafts down from the speakers and settles on the couch next to you, like some friend who showed up out of nowhere. She’s that good.”

With that said, it should not come as a surprise to anyone at all that her album ‘Come Away With Me’ is riding high on the official UK album charts. It’s still in the Top 10 regions.

In response to the question “Some journalists have said that the disc’s singularity comes from the fact that it has the audacity to be low key in a splashy pop era. What are your views?”, Norah replied “It’s kind of like sensory overload. I can’t sing like that. Some girls can sing that well. A lot of pop people out there are way cool, but they overdo it.”

So with incredible vocals of hers, what kind of music does Norah listen to and does she secretly own a Britney Spears album, perhaps?

To this, the Miss-India beautiful Miss Jones replied “Well, I’m a fan of Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder. As for the Britney LP, no I don’t own that kind of stuff. But I do like to watch it on TV if it comes on. It’s definitely stimulating, don’t you think? Britney’s dance moves are very interesting.”

Norah Jones Don’t Know Why She’s Getting Lots Of Attention

Named as one of Rolling Stone’s top 10 artists to watch in 2002, a gleaming star doesn’t quite aptly describe Norah Jones. She’s more than that, really. Critics and fellow music lovers alike all seem to be lapping her and her debut album, ‘Come Away With Me’, up like anything. Papers seem to produce glowing reviews about her debut offering. She seems to be left, right and center and receiving the kind of exposure Britney Spears would surely like, or not.

Anyway, at a press conference conducted the other day, when the reporters asked about the sudden explosion of attention, Norah smiled, saying “It’s a little strange, really. And way loads more, more work than I thought it would be. Which is fine; I’m up for work. But it’s absolutely not a side of music I’ve ever thought I would have to deal with so early on in my career. And I definitely don’t want it to overshadow what I really love to do or have it get to the point where music is just secondary.”

She’s releasing her ‘Don’t Know Why’ number in the UK on the 13th of May and you can preview it, along with other tracks, at her official website.

Norah, the daughter of celebrated Indian musician, Ravi Shankar, has a noticeably mature attitude to all aspects of her budding career, including the potential tumble that could await an unsuccessful album after all the media build-up.”Look, I’m young,” concluded Norah, whom everyone says is ‘Miss India’ pretty, “and so it’s OK if this one’s not such a big hit, because I’m happy with it. It’s already gone beyond my expectations in the response it’s gotten from friends and from some of the press, and that means that the people who are most important to me liked it. Right now, that’s enough.”

Meanwhile, as previously mentioned on, Norah did participate in an all-star tribute to Willie Nelson, dubbed ‘Willie Nelson & Friends: Stars & Guitars’. Other performers also included Dave Matthews, Brian McKnight, Keith Richards, Sheryl Crow, Emmylou Harris, Hank Williams III, Ryan Adams, Lee Ann Womack, Rob Thomas, Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora, Dixie Chicks and many more. ‘Willie Nelson & Friends: Stars & Guitars’ will air come 27th of May on the USA network from 9 to 11 p.m. eastern time.

Also, do take note that Norah hits the roads on the 15th of May playing dates throughout the UK and Europe. In early June, Norah heads back in the US performing at festivals and venues along the East Coast. Beginning on the 26th of June, Norah and her band will open a series of shows for the Indigo Girls.

Norah Jones Breaks Through

Not since Diana Krall or even Sarah MacLachlan for that matter, has a solo female soul/jazz artist created such a critical sensation in the media. I’m talking about the one and only Norah Jones. She has the potential to make being a devotee the world of smooth sounds and cardigans a very cool thing indeed.

Norah Jones, who has by the way, Miss India-worthy looks, is slowly but surely bringing her fabulous sound to an increasing audience with her major-label debut LP on Blue Note/Capitol, ‘Come Away With Me’.

What really makes Norah worthy of your investigation is merely just the way she sounds. This is what one critic had to say pertaining to Norah Jones “If quiet is the new loud, then the voice is the new power chord. And Norah Jones has a voice you’d trade your soul for. Equal parts smoke, honey, autumn and regret, it’s one of those delicious twists of nature you want to lose yourself in. She makes heartbreak sound like the most sumptuous luxury and disappointment feel like whispered sweet nothings in the middle of the night. You suspect she could sing your eviction notice and still make it all seem good.”Released on the 26th of February Stateside, the Arif Mardin-produced ‘Come Away With Me’ bowed on the Billboard’s Heatseekers chart at a peak location of No. 5 in the 16th of March issue. Norah’s debut offering also became a No. 1 hit on the Top Contemporary Jazz Albums chart and moves 4 notches up to sit at No. 58 this week on The Billboard 200.

The daughter of famed Indian musician Ravi Shankar, Norah was born in Brooklyn, New York and brought up in Dallas. She has since returned to New York, where she is now based.

Norah, 22, spoke to an online UK music-zine recently “I just try to stay focused on my music and my shows. I used to be more of a piano player. Sometimes I feel I can sing better without the piano, but for now I feel comfortable doing both.”

She’s currently touring in support of “Come Away With Me.” She has dates scheduled on 12th of April in Denver, and will take to the road again in June. She’ll also be among the many artists, like Jon Bon Jovi, Richie Sambora, Ryan Adams, Lee Ann Womack, Lyle Lovett, Matchbox Twenty and more, who will all come together to celebrate Willie Nelson at his tribute concert, held at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium come 14th of April. That’ll be taped for future broadcast by cable channel A&E.

April 3-4: West Hollywood, Calif. (House of Blues)

April 5: San Francisco (Fillmore)
