It was years ago when I first spotted an article about Melody Gardot. Somehow I didn't get round to actually listening to her music until a few weeks ago. I probably should have done it sooner, as I simply adore her music now.
I did soon order two of her CDs and I've been playing them like crazy. It's yet again a perfect Sunday morning cd, but I could listen to it 24/7.
Apart from having an amazing voice, she plays the guitar, the piano and writes her own songs.
She actually started playing the guitar after she got hit by a Jeep when she was nineteen. I find stories like that so inspiring. It's very similar to what happened to Frida Kahlo and I always take comfort in the knowledge that you can take something good out of bad things.
Anyway, enjoy these songs!
