Melody Gardot
Melody Gardot
Genre: Jazz/Blues

At the age of 23, Melody Gardot already possesses the talent and the maturity of the greats. Often compared to Diana Krall and Norah Jones, she has established herself as THE new voice of jazz in the space of just 3 albums.

Melody Gardot began her stage career in Pennsylvania. At the age 16, she was singing Duke Ellington, Radiohead and The Mamas and the Papas in the bars of Philadelphia. Hit by a car when she was out cycling, the well-plotted path of Melody Gardot took a sudden turn - the young woman suffered multiples fractures of the pelvis, the backbone and the head. She still bears the traces today, walking with a stick and wearing tinted glasses. During a medical consultation, her therapist suggested music therapy to her and these words had a decisive impact on Melody Gardot’s life. From her hospital room she wrote the 6-track EP Some Lessons - The Bedroom Sessions and gave glimpses of her talent. She came to attention with her first album, produced with Glenn Barratt, entitled Worrisome Heart, which impresses with its aura of maturity. After a difficult tour in 2007/2008, she released her second record My One and Only Thrill (2009), which included ‘Baby I'm a Fool’. It was both a critical and popular success. Now known around the world, Melody Gardot has sung with some of the greatest. Herbie Hancock recently invited her onto a television programme to sing ‘Edith And The Kingpin’ by Joni Mitchell.
