…teach a woman to play guitar, and she’ll play for a lifetime

You’ve had many opportunities to have heard of Carla Bruni (Tedeschi). She’s a model…

Carla Bruni, the model.

She’s married to the President of France (can you name him?)

Carla Bruni, the First Lady

And, she’s a musician (you can tell by the guitar)…

Carla Bruni, the musician

I, too, had heard of her. But it was only after my friend Steve recommended it to our logo designer (that post is still forthcoming) Matt, who recommended it to me, did I hear her music. To my knowledge, there are two albums – one in French and the next in English. Here’s a sample…

If you’re into acoustic slow jazz with intriguing lyrics and sultry female vocals, this should get you where you need to go. I sampled much of the two albums before deciding to buy them outright, and I can’t wait to really dive into them. The samples were all really entrancing.

And, in the spirit of serving up similar music, I would thank Aurgasm for pointing me toward Melody Gardot. While not living quite the high profile life as Carla Bruni, the musical approach is similar – on its surface…

My impression is that she’s a bit more traditional, and possibly a tad more mainstream – stopping short of Harry Connick, Jr. (I hope). But both captured my attention, and I can’t wait to delve into their catalogs a bit more. Hope this gives you a new musical direction to follow.
