“An impressive introduction to this stunning new talent, Worrisome Heart was produced by Gardot with Glenn Barratt and originally released independently in 2006.
Melody heads into the studio in January 2008 to record her official debut for Verve Records, Produced by Larry Klein (Joni Mitchell, Herbie Hancock).
Gardot’s engaging songs and sultry controlled vocals are provocative and familiar. Melody is cool, sophisticated, inspirational, stylish, articulate and sexy.
“. . . in a place where Billie Holiday meets Tom Waits . . . has moments that recall pieces of Nina Simone, early Rickie Lee Jones, and even the sophistication of Cole Porter. ” - Business Week
Although there are elements of jazz, blues and folk in her music, it is simultaneously all of those things and none of them. Her engaging songs and sultry controlled vocals possess a timeless quality that places them in the tradition of the great female vocalists on Verve, whose work have also not been confined to any one genre or style”
