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

Wow, impressive. I could have sworn this was Fiona Apple, with all the sass and velvety tones but what a crazy life story and more impressive that she found her calling through such a tragedy.

I had never heard of her. This is my Nancy Wilson station, and I am so happy to have been introduced to her. Her voice is haunting to me, only having read her story can I understand how she has a voice that tells a story far older than her years on this rock. Love her!
Love her voice so calm, deep and take places I wish I was...
I was introduced to Melody Gardot about a year ago and her voice, the lyrics to some of her music just sing to my soul. I'm a fan for sure.
Melody doesn't take my breath away; she gives me one instead.

Soul-full, deep, sensuous and wonderful. And what a backstory!

Her voice and lyrical timing, quick and captivating, caught me off guard listening with one ear, then wow .....2. Prompted me to read her bio and would love to see her someday. Will purchase her CD. A stand out in many many respects. Great writer, composer as well.
Absolute beauty. Deep and haunting song writing that awakens the most internal and vulnerable parts of our tender hearts.
Very amazing woman

Am I the only one that thinks she and Adele sound very much alike? I love them both. I think Gardot's voice is like honey and whiskey.
After reading this, I have an even greater admiration for her. She's an inspiration for getting up and coming to work.
Love her voice first time I ever heard her sing (idk she was a singer)
