"With her debut album Worrisome Heart, Melody Gardot displayed her instinctive gift for transforming the traditions of jazz and blues with “her personal kiss of life.” But even her most ardent admirers will be amazed at the giant creative leap forward she has taken with the follow-up, My One And Only Thrill. Mixing Latin rhythms, finger-snapping blues and deep, smoldering torch songs, it’s an album that seems to have been shaped from several lifetimes of love, loss and longing. Though she’s still only in her early twenties, the rapturous reception accorded to Worrisome Heart by fans and critics meant that she suddenly found her life moving at triple speed, as Melody and her band bounced between gigs, hotels and airports as demand blossomed across several continents.
Gardot has performed with such notable acts as Livingston Taylor, The Wood Brothers, Brandi Carlile, Susan Tedeschi, James Hunter, Mike Doughty, Jeffrey Gaines, David Poe, Amy Correia, and more. Venues played include The Kimmel Center, The Kennedy Center, World Cafe Live, The Tin Angel, Club Passim, The Sellersville Theatre, The Media Theatre, The Ritz, Rockwood Music Hall, The Living Room, The Cutting Room and more along with such festivals as the Philadelphia Folk Festival, The Rehoboth Beach Jazz Festival and the WXPN All about the music festival.
