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

Very inspirationa l story
She has such a sexy sensual voice. Got her first record and loved her since.

Unreal... Her hypersensiti v i t y allows her to feel deeply; sharply and somehow interpret those deep emotions, seemingly effortless into sweet, sweet music... I can't help but fall in love...
I too, was hit by a car and left on the side of a country road for dead. There few people that can understand what that does to a person.
Her talent wasn't born of that tragedy but amplified by it. What a beautiful singer and woman.
Glad she is with us.
Her voice has so much soul and passion yet is so reserved. Wonderful.
Beautiful
Soulful
I am spell bound!
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.

Her voice takes me to far away places. Happy sexy places. Wow
sgdubois
She has hints of Fiona Apple.
She really sings like no other vocalist. She has a style of her own.
Her voice is so so mesmerizing! ����������
Just beautiful!!!
Melody has touched my soul like no artist has ever done before. Her voice and beauty transcend the gods. Keep on Ms Gardot. Thank you for sharing yourself with the rest of the world.
Sweet!!
Not just a pretty face, but of soul of infinite beauty.
I was blown away with her stylish and sensual vibes. I'm a true fan ! I'm just saying so sweet...
My goodness
Thank you sweet lady...
Wow incredible voice and even more incredible story
Love her music.
Her story only deepens the mystery she carries in her lovely vocals.

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!
