Melody Gardot is a remarkable talent. A talent like hers is so startling, that when it surfaces, you quickly turn your head and ask, "Who is THAT singing?" Even more remarkable is her personal story that led to where she stands today, Billboard’s Top New Jazz Artist of 2008. Her previous release, Worrisome Heart was also coined as the Best New Vocal Album in Jazz, with NPR choosing the CD as one of the Best Jazz Albums of the Year.
Following on this success, Gardot has a new CD set for release by the Verve Music Group on April 24, 2009. My One and Only Thrill, her sophomore effort, will surely zoom to the top of the charts, appealing to a wide range of listeners. He voice is appealingly wistful and as smooth as Crown Royal. Even more surprising, her vocals express mature emotion for such a young singer, expressing thoughtful sensibilities that entice listeners to a rich array of jazz, pop and Brazilian rhythms.
Gardot will be touring in 2009 to promote My One and Only Thrill throughout the United States and Europe. She is one of today’s most promising artists on her way to a pinnacle of success.
Look for her new CD My One and Only Thrill on April 28, 2009 and be prepared to fall in love with it.
