Norah Jones Signs With AGI's Marsha Vlasic: Exclusive
Jones, honored by Billboard as the top jazz artist of the 2000s, was previously with UTA.
Marsha Vlasic has signed singer/songwriter Norah Jones for representation in the U.S. and Canada, Billboard has learned. The 39-year-old was named the Top Jazz of Artist of the 2000s by Billboard and has won nine Grammys and has sold 50 million records worldwide.
Jones had previously been represented by Joe Brauner, who joined The Agency Group in 2015 shortly before the agency was acquired by UTA.
"I am thrilled to be representing such a talented performer, songwriter and mother," Vlasic tells Billboard, saying she had been working hard to sign the "Don't Know Why" singer to Artist Group International, where Vlasic has worked with Adam Kornfeld and Dennis Arfa since 2014 after a long stretch at ICM.
Vlasic will represent Jones in the U.S. and Canada -- the singer's international touring business, including Mexico, is currently handled by CAA. In April, Jones will begin a nine-city tour of Australia and New Zealand, performing at Palais Threatre in St. Kilda, Australia on April 12 and wrapping April 29 at Town Hall in Christchurch, New Zealand. On Dec. 1, Jones will perform at the Riviera Maya Jazz Fest in Playa del Carmen, Mexico.
Jones has 12 albums that charted on the Billboard 200 albums chart, including six albums in the Top 10 and three No. 1s -- her debut Come Away With Me from 2003, the 2004 followup Feels Like Home and her 2007 record Not Too Late. She's collaborated with dozens of artists including Dave Grohl, Mike Patton, Ryan Adams and Q-Tip from A Tribe Called Quest and released an duets album with Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong in 2013.
Jones is managed by John Silva and is signed to Universal Music Group's Blue Note Records.
