Any Melody Gardot fans here?

Please post about how you cam to know and why you love this beautiful voice. Below is mine (Copied from another thread):

I love Gardot's music because I can also relate to her personal experiences.

I had a traffic accident earlier in the year. I was on the way to dinner with my mum, and whilst trying to turn right at an intersection my little hatchback got swipped by a tradesman trying to speed through an intersection. My car got hit from the passenger side, than spun around until I landed up against a sign post.

My mum had a fractured back and some broken ribs, and I had a small back fracture and a busted right knee which is still requiring constant physiotherapy. I also slammed my head hard against the side pillar of the car, and I have currently have short term memory problems, loss of sleep and other crap like that. I think I also have some personality changes as well, as I used to hate jazz, but now I absolutely love it. Sort of weird, but hey!

How I found out about gardot:

I found out about her music when I was visiting my sister, and was looking for CDs in a music store when somebody recommended her CD. I didn't know anything about her personal life until I looked her up on last.fm

That sound a lot like what Gardot went through, you'r right. I got her record and like it, for my taste it could gave been more colourful but for quiet listening it's nice. Hope you'll recover fully.

I guess jazz music and playing bass has become a sort of therapy for me. Whenever I get stressed, it calms me down...

Have you heart Jacyntha? More classic mainstream jazz vocals (compared to Gardot), very quiet.

Finally got around to going through the album, and I'm loving it! Shared it with a friend who didn't share quite the same amount of enthusiasm =P

A few years back "Worrisome Heart" was the free single of the week on iTunes, it was one of only a handful of free songs that I really enjoyed and wanted to go deeper into the artist...

Love the tone of her voice.  I have all her albums on vinyl.
