Melody Gardot - Iemanja

10.07.2012

Live at Miles Davis Hall

 

Every artist has a story. Melody's is at the heart of her music. When she was 19, Melody was hit by a car. During her recovery she used music as a form of therapy, even recording and releasing tracks while still in the hospital. Once out, she started playing around Philadelphia. Her first full-length album, Worrisome Heart (2006), displayed her gift for transforming the traditions of jazz and blues with her intimate and personal sound. It also set a soulful artist with a small but strong following onto the world stage. Her 4th album is awaited in May. (FFJM © 2012)
