Default Melody Gardot-I want to marry you



Fall in love with this beautiful voice. Classic jazz. None of that Faux crap that Katie Melua et al forces down onto us. Her debut album was recorded when she was 21 (2006) and althought it starts quietly, the albums second half is worth the admission price alone. Quiet Fire and Love Me Like A River Does are spellbinding. Billie Holliday? Nina Simone? Early Joni Mitchell? Buy it. Love It. Open Up.

Third and final attempt to introduce a talent that is far more interesting than the Winehouses of this world. Listen and Love!

Not that i'm really that clued up jazz wise but even to me that's a lot more endearing than the watered down stuff the mainstream throws out.

I just saw this...not sure how I missed it. She has a fantastic voice and she's good lookin' to boot.

Any chance of getting a d/l?

The comparisons to Billie Holliday are obvious, which puts me off a bit to be honest. How much is she actually like her and how much is she trying to be like her?
Great voice and she reminds me of Eva Cassidy too.

It is inevitable that comparisons will be made but if the honesty and the talent of a voice comes through then that's enough for me. Have you got the album?
