And now you can add Dr Seuss to that list of musical inspirations. As a Mother to two small kids Norah has spent a lot of time reading them his fantastic books.

Reading Dr Seuss to  my kids every night got me thinking of the rhyming style and it inspired me to write 'How I Weep' - I also love when I hear my kids trying to write a song and sometimes I am amazed at what they can come up with some really profound statements! And you're like WOW!

Norah Jones has made a serious contribution to music since she burst on to the scene with 'Come Away With Me' and her voice has become synonymous with ears worldwide.

Come Away With Me: Revisiting Norah Jones' Breakout Debut Album

SEVEN STUDIO ALBUMS - 50 MILLION SOLD

Like a soulful, beautiful ray of sunshine that first album was in half the households of the world providing a musical soundscape to light up grey days.

Norah is an incredibly private person.

So, when she agreed to do this interview with The Fergal D'Arcy Show we were absolutely thrilled.
