Norah Jones inspired by Elvis Presley
London: Grammy winning singer Norah Jones` says she finds inspiration for her music from King of Rock `n` Roll Elvis Presley and his Graceland home in Memphis.
The 33-year-old musician, who is the daughter of sitar maestro Ravi Shankar, said everyone should visit Presley`s Graceland home at least once in their lives for inspiration, reported Contactmusic.
"I love it in Memphis. It`s the most amazing city full of warm people and great food.
"Everybody should visit Elvis` home Graceland once in their lives and while they`re at it they should take a trip to the Sun Records museum. It`s the record label that launched Elvis, Johnny Cash and Jerry Lee Lewis," she said.
Jones is more inspired by artists from the 50s and 60s than modern musicians.
"I`m really inspired by other music and musicians. My fantasy dinner party would include Willie Nelson, Ray Charles and Billie Holiday. They`re just some of the people I look up to. I have about 50 musical icons."
