Some Lessons by Melody Gardot

If ever there was a push-n-play worthy of a candlelit soul searching sunset with a glass of wine and memories set to moods, "Some Lessons" is that signature spin. Coated with self-related lyrics mated with an acoustic sound, Melody Gardot delivers the quintessential mood music. "Some Lessons" very simply put has "feel!"

It’s a rich, sultry yet bluesy sound that ejects itself away from the rest. She may remind you of some current names on the scene however it’s a Gardot kind of echo, so very cool. Impressive? Absolutely for "Some Lessons" for the young Gardot was written, performed, and produced by Gardot alone.

Opening with "Wicked Ride" which is a colorfully illustrated piece on a young girls life journey. The tempered ivories sound, truly encapsulates the message. Adorned with simple but powerful lyrics it makes for a exquisite introduction.

"Down the Avenue" is a lively acoustically orchestrated ride. Great tempo and harmonic start makes this piece a unique listen.

Ms. Gardot has that haunting yet sensual allure to her sounds. As if a volcano was to erupt inside her poring out seas of emotion yet to be felt. You will be tuned in to her approach and soon to her next project. Ms. Gardot, she is new, fresh, and fiery. Just what the industry needs.
