India will finally get to hear nine-time Grammy Award winner Norah Jones live next year. She will kick-off her three-city tour with a headlining performance for A Summer’s Day in Mumbai on March 3, 2013 followed by concerts in New Delhi on March 5 and Bengaluru on March 8.
A Summer’s Day, which also features some of the most exciting artists from India and around the world, is a new music festival produced by Only Much Louder, the company behind music festivals like the Bacardi NH7 Weekender and the Eristoff Invasion.
Jones has been extensively touring after the release of her latest album, Little Broken Hearts, which was produced by Danger Mouse and now she plans to come to India.
Jones first emerged on the world stage 10 years ago with the 2002 release Come Away With Me 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 synthetic pop music of the time.
Since then, Jones has sold over 40 million albums worldwide, releasing a series of successful solo albums — Feels Like Home (2004), Not Too Late (2007) and The Fall (2009) apart from Little Broken Hearts (2012), as well as two albums with her country collective The Little Willies.
The 2010 compilation ...Featuring Norah Jones, showcased her versatility by putting together her collaborations with artists such as Willie Nelson , Herbie Hancock and Foo Fighters.
