Melody Gardot

The story of vocalist Melody Gardot is as remarkable as any who perseveres against abject adversity. Born in New Jersey in 1985, she took up piano and played as a youngster on the nightclub scene of Philadelphia, influenced by jazz, folk, rock, and pop music. At age 19 she was a fashion student at the Community College of Philadelphia. But, on a fateful day, while riding her bicycle, the driver of a Jeep made an illegal turn, hurdling into Gardot and leaving her in the street for dead. As she lay hospitalized for months with multiple head injuries and pelvic fractures, her love for music was the best therapy she could receive. While in her hospital bed, she wrote and recorded songs that would become the EP Some Lessons. Upon her eventual release from intensive care, Gardot found the strength and determination to further her career as an artist. Blessed with a beautiful voice and grand insight as a songwriter, her cognitive powers slowly but surely became pronounced, leading to the independent recording and release of her debut CD, Worrisome Heart, which was reissued in 2007 by the Verve label. Her music could be described as a cross between Laura Nyro, Joni Mitchell, Eva Cassidy, and Shania Twain, but goes deeper than mere pop convention. Gardot is hypersensitive to light and noise, thus she wears dark glasses, and uses a cane to walk. On-stage she requires a special seating unit, and wears a Transcutaneous Electro-Nerve Stimulator, a TENS device, to assist in alleviating her neuralgic muscle pain. As amazing as her story is, what is more evident is that she possesses a blue style and persona that reflect not only her afflictions, but conversely the hope and joy of making personalized music that marks her as an individual and original. Though touring is difficult, she has been performing in major cities on the East Coast to support her recordings. In 2009, working with producer Larry Klein and arranger Vince Mendoza -- both known for their work with Joni Mitchell -- Gardot followed up her Verve debut with My One and Only Thrill. Gardot returned in 2012 with her third studio album, The Absence, featuring production from guitarist/composer Heitor Pereira. ~ Michael G. Nastos, Rovi

I remember her! I fractured my pelvis and saw her on Wikipedia. Now I'm healed and has been for a year and she starts playing on my Pandora.

So she got hit, then upon almost dying decided to do something she wanted with her life.... That's not really inspirationa l . . . that's a pretty normal reaction. Guess every musician has to have a story to tell to separate them from everyone else.

A living testament to the notion that it is not necessarily what you have done, but what you have survived --- in Gardot's case, it's both. A voice so soulful, sensuous, yet raw with emotion ... amazing!

OMG, I didn't know anything about her background. I love her voice, and even though her covers were sexy, so I searched for a video, and wondered why she seemed to be hiding her face...I guess it makes sense now.

Clearly something very different but good about her. She clearly has a unique style. True artist!

Buddhabryn. My good fortune while healing from acl surgery I found Ms. Gardot and she's the cure for what ails you. Take as much of her music as often as needed because the after effect is sublime. I am a huge fan and will be .Keep making us well. Merci tres beaucoup !

Melody has the unique quality blend of honey laced with dark bitter molasses. I could listen to her all day, and I often listen while sculpting figures. She transcends me into a special place......I feel her experience.. .

her voice reminds me of a female version of Brian Ferry... a nervous quivering quality, dark and moody with emotion, yet gleaming with a light purity
