The American Melody Gardot is "a singer with a history". When she was nineteen, she was seriously injured in a tragic accident. It was unclear for a long time whether she would ever walk again. During her rehabilitation a doctor encouraged her to stimulate her brain in a positive way by picking up an old hobby of hers as therapy: music. Gardot, who had learned to play the piano as a child, started writing songs. Eventually this led to the remarkable debut Worrisome Heart. With her sleepy, warm voice, Gardot comes close to the light, slightly hoarse sound of Norah Jones. She also sounds similar to Madeleine Peyroux and Eva Cassidy. Her jazzy songs about unattainable lovers, spineless exes and infidelity by night are simply beautiful and will captivate the audience.
