Singer/Songwriter Melody Gardot Interviewed at AAJ

SOURCE: Published: 2009-04-20
Melody Gardot Over the course of two much-lauded albums, singer/songwriter Melody Gardot has garnered a reputation many spent far longer to achieve. Still, it didn't come easily to Gardot, who never set pen to paper until an accident that almost left her in a wheelchair permanently.



Still, adversity can provide the greatest source material for songwriting, and even greater perspective on life, and as Gardot has grown as a songwriter between Worrisome Heart (Verve, 2008) and My One and Only Thrill (Verve, 2009), so, too, has she grown in terms of her ability to view the bigger musical picture, with her latest album featuring strings to expand her sonic palette.



AAJ contributor Esther Berlanga-Ryan spoke with Gardot about the making of My One and Only Thrill, and her view on gaining greater perspective on life, music and how to view the same experience from a different angle.
