After completing a successful European tour and having her album hit No. 1 on the Billboard Jazz Charts, singer/songwriter Melody Gardot has announced a string of U.S. shows this fall. The tour will begin on September 20 in San Francisco at the Herbst Theatre. Gardot will spend a couple more days in the Golden State, performing at the Monterey Jazz Festival on September 21 and at L.A.’s Orpheum Theatre on September 22. After that it’s off to Chicago, Boston and New York. Gardot wraps the tour up on September 29 when she heads to her home town of Philadelphia to perform at the Merriam Theatre.

Gardot is a Grammy-nominated Jazz musician who began music lessons at the age of nine. After a cycling accident in 2003 left her nearly incapacitated, she turned to singing and songwriting to help rebuild her motor skills. From her hospital bed she learned how to play piano, and eventually began to write and produce her own music. Her latest release, The Absence, is her third full-length album.
