Melody Gardot

Melody Gardot is a jazz singer and an amazing, inspirational person that I am thankful for learning about at the library! Her story is not without tragedy. At the age of 19, she was hit by a car and as a result of extensive damage ended up with severe neurological complications that she continues to deal with to this day. Using music as a form of therapy, she has risen to be one of the most enticing jazz singers I have ever heard.

Gardot's first album, Worrisome Heart came out in 2008. In 2009, she released My One and Only Thrill. Ms Gardot continues to advocate for music therapy and inspire those that face overwhelming obstacles.

Making things by hand reflects skills of days gone by, reveals a more self-reliant lifestyle and gives additional significance to the finished product.

Miss Phoebe Reese Guest Blogs For Fresh City Life

Backstage at Curious Theatre, Phoebe poses with a young fan.

While Chris Loffelmacher attends the International Cultural Programming Symposium in Cleveland, his friend, Phoebe Reese (entertainer, party hostess and self-proclaimed celebrity), will be filling in and sending you up-to-the-minute blogs on what's happening at Fresh City Life:

 Hello My Little Pumpkins!

I'm commandeering Chris' blog for a couple weeks while he takes in all the cultural offerings in Cleveland. Chris and I go way back, we grew up together in North Dakota and then met again years later while my star was rising in San Francisco. He was a clerk in a gift shop -- and though we were an unlikely pair, we became fast friends. My star never stopped rising...and now I believe Chris is a clerk of some kind at the library...so we've both come a long way.
