She's probably more similar to Karen Carpenter than Norah Jones, but you might want to try Rumer.  Here she is singing a great Jimmy Webb song:

Jewel- voice like an angel and an amazing songwriter.  Every song on every album she ever released is enjoyable to me.

I have found Itunes genious recommendations very helpful with this type of question.  Also, if you have smartphone, I highly recommend the SoundHound app.  If you are hearing a song anywhere, soundhound itentifies the name and artist for you with just an audio sample, even providing lyrics.

Try Jane Monheit. She's a bit jazzier than Norah (who blends in pop with her jazz influences), but they have similar registers and tones.

Thanks for all the recommendations, going through them one by one now. Will post my feedbacks when i'm done!

Right now I'm listening to Sarah Vaughan singing Gershwin. I'm in vocal heaven. :)

Seems I've never posted in this thread. I've listed some of my favorites below and linked the name of each artist to a song on YouTube (embedding this many videos would have taken quite a lot of space) so those not familiar with the singer can have some kind of reference. I tried to pick videos with good sound quality, but couldn't find anything in a couple of cases.

 

Ane Brun

Björk

Dusty Springfield

Ella Fitzgerald

Imogen Heap

Tarja Turunen

Tori Amos

Wata

 

 

Also, if Vocaloids and such are allowed, then these ones as well:

 

Hatsune Miku

Kagamine Rin

Kasane Teto

Megurine Luka

My favorite female artists are Shania Twain (Pre-UP!) and Lzzy Hale.

It's a bit difficult to think of someone who is similar to Norah Jones in both vocal character and musical style, but in terms of vocal character alone, Natalie Merchant comes fairly close, as others have mentioned, notably her 'Tigerlily' album, and perhaps the album 'Ophelia'.

 

 

 

Also close in vocal character is the jazz vocalist Stacey Kent, and given that Norah Jones has a partly jazzy sound, this might be a good fit for you. Her album 'Dreamsville' would be your best bet to begin with.
