Holy shit. Read this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Melody_Gardot
And then LISTEN TO HER OH MY GOD
This girl (a native of Philadelphia) despite being launched by the same people as Norah Jones, blows her out of the water. And to read what she goes through each day is simply heartbreaking. And inspiring. And humbling. all her tracks are streamable on last.fm, if you like smoky, mature jazz. this girl is TALENTED. She recently opened for Diana Krall on her tour in New Zealand.
this girl is going to be HUGE. she has to be. if people have, like, taste.
I recommend "Your Heart is as Black as Night."
