Quiet, contemplative and utterly seductive. Organic blues/folk/jazz blended together for a comfortable soothing mix thats sure to calm you. Think Norah Jones with a guitar.

Song and Lyrics Written/Arranged/Performed/Produced by Melody Gardot
(c) 2005 Some Lessons The Bedroom Sessions EP

Listen to the words. Grab a kleenex. This song is all about the hope that comes from nearly losing your life. If you aren't moved by this song you might need to check your pulse. Its based on a true life experience where Melody Gardot was nearly killed by a Jeep that struck her while atop her bicycle in Philadelphia PA. It was the first song she wrote after the accidet while bedridden.
Song Comments

Cherry Gum
Now, this is an awesome blues song. I don't listen to Blues a lot, but this one is so nonchalant and light, like water floating softly, moistening the emotional pieces of your past. Great voice she has too, very intimate.

nothing i could say would speak better for this than it does for itself, right in your ear.

Simply a beautiful song.

The Stars Are Never Really Distant
Melody Gardot is just pure class..So young,yet with a voice and songwriting inspiration that exudes all the quiet soulful authority and gravity you usually associate only with old time Jazz/Blues legends. Some Lessons is one of the few but consistently high quality songs she has available online..Hushed and intimate,yet powerfully moving and haunting,the timeless sighing melody and sense of stoical grace,acceptance and redemption she finds from such a painful and potentially tragic event can't help but touch you.. I wouldn't be the least bit suprised to find she's a platinum selling artist within a couple of years..Remember the name......

Melodygardot - What vocals! a true lesson on listening and sweet guitar back ground.
