I became a big fan of Melody Gardot early last year and am tickled pink that the 25 year-old natural is getting the acclaim she fully deserves. She is being compared to Norah Jones which is like comparing apples to oranges. Her closest musical "sisters" are in fact American singer Peggy Lee (1920-2002) and Swedish singer/actress Monica Zetterlund (1937-2005). Melody also happens to bear an uncanny physical resemblance to these two great ladies.
