Nine-time Grammy Award winner Norah Jones is making her Bluesfest debut at our 30th Anniversary Celebration this Easter Long Weekend. Norah Jones first emerged on the world stage with the February 2002 release of “Come Away With Me”, her self-described ‘moody little record’ that introduced a singular new voice and grew into a global phenomenon, sweeping the 2003 Grammy Awards and signalling a paradigm shift away from the prevailing pop music of the time. Since then, Norah has sold 50 million albums worldwide and won a string of accolades. Her incredible versatility in music is portrayed across her many albums and collaborations with artists of varying genres including Willie Nelson, OutKast, Ray Charles and Foo Fighters. Norah recently released “Wintertime”, the fourth in the series of eclectic singles that she has been releasing over recent months and the second offering from her collaboration with Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy. As one of the music world’s most consistently intriguing singer-songwriters, Norah has returned to her Jazz roots in her latest album while also proving to be the purveyor of an unmistakably unique sound that weaves together the threads of several bedrock styles of American music: Country, Folk, Rock, Soul, Jazz. We are super excited to see Norah perform in Byron Bay this April.
