GRAMMY® nominated artist CYRILLE AIMEE touted as the Voice of a New Generation in Vocal Jazz, went from singing on street corners in Europe to the world's most prestigious jazz festivals; from sneaking out to sing in gypsy encampments in her native France to acting on Broadway; from braving the notoriously tough audiences at New York's Apollo Theatre to being called a "rising star in the galaxy of jazz singers" by The New York Times. Born in France to French and Dominican parents, you can hear her heritage in her voice. Aimée won the Montreux Jazz Festival Vocal Competition and the Sarah Vaughn International Jazz Vocal Competition. Aimée co-starred with Bernadette Peters in a Stephen Sondheim tribute at New York's City Center, which inspired her to dig deeper into Sondheim's repertoire, resulting in her fourth and most recent album, Move On: A Sondheim Adventure.
