Melody Gardot In Concert

While recovering from a serious accident, singer-songwriter Melody Gardot recorded and released Worrisome Heart, which brings to mind Laura Nyro, Joni Mitchell and Eva Cassidy while fusing blues, folk and jazz. Click the link above to hear Gardot perform live in concert from WXPN and World Café Live in Philadelphia.

A few years ago, while riding her bicycle, Gardot was hit by the driver of a Jeep making an illegal turn. Hospitalized for months, Gardot used music for recovery therapy, at the suggestion of her doctors. In the ensuing months, she took up the guitar — it was hard for her to sit at the piano — and recorded what would become the Some Lessons EP. Not long afterward, she followed it with the full-length Worrisome Heart, which was reissued on a major label earlier this year.
