Melody Gardot

image

Oh my.  I haven’t heard such a beautiful sound in I can’t tell you how long.  I was up early last Sunday morning compliments of my crazy and neurotic (to the point of possibly needing medication) dog.  The new carpet runner we gave her for Christmas I am happy to report is working.  Oakley the dog is enjoying the new freedom she has and is exercising that freedom by coming up to our bedroom and waking me (not my husband) up by shoving her wet dog nose in my face most mornings now between 6:30 and 7:00 AM.  She doesn’t understand the concept of weekends. 

So up with the sun on a Sunday morning, the dog and I headed downstairs to drink a pot of coffee and eat a bowl of Beneful Playful Life.  On the Sunday Morning Show on CBS I saw a story about an American singer named Melody Gardot.  This woman is a huge talent and I had never heard of her.  Her music is soft, feminine, jazzy.  I love it when I find new music.  I am a bit old school in that I like to play CD’s in my car and I ordered her CD from Amazon.com and it arrived today.  LOVE IT.  But of course i-Tunes is a perfectly good alternative.  :)

Click here (MELODY GARDOT) to be taken to her website and you can listen to her for yourself.   Do nothing….her velvety voice will start on it’s own.  You will thank me later.  :)

We here in the Austin area are already acquainted with Melody from hearing her music played on KGSR. She is unique and charming in a world of sound-alikes. Happy listening! -- Holly

Thanks, Lisa!! I had never heard of her, either...but I just pulled her up on iTunes and she sounds somewhat like Diana Krall (who I LOVE)!! AND I randomly found an iTunes gift card last week in a drawer and was trying to figure out how to spend it. Plus her songs are all 99 cents which is kind of nice. I'm all over this. I LOVE finding new musicians...I get so sick of Top 40. Grazie!
