Melody Gardot

November 3, 2009


How many of y’all have heard of Melody Gardot?
I heard from her a couple months ago but since she’s touring right now it’s probably time to focus a bit on her. She had a serious accident at the age of 19 and recovered thanks to the power of music therapy. She then started writing songs listening to Janis Joplin, Duke Ellington and Miles Davis. In 2005 she released her first tracks on iTunes and called it “Some Lessons: The Bedroom Sessions“. 3 years later came her first full-length album on Verve RecordsWorrisome Heart“. Meeting Larry Klein, musician and ex-husband of Joni Mitchell helped her to release her new album that came out in April of this year “My One and Only Thrill“, also on Verve. “Baby I’m a Fool” is a beautiful track and the whole album has the same calm atmosphere, great stuff!

She will be in London on November 15 @ the Royal Festival Hall. And don’t forget to cop her album on iTunes or at your local record dealer.
