“Astonishingly creative…with a brilliant sound, fresh ideas, 
impeccable rhythm and an overall approach that honors tradition 
without being shackled to the past” – The Wall Street Journal

“When you see Cyrille Aimée perform, you instantly fall in love with her – 
her voice, eyes, curls, and the joyful spirit she invests in each song.” – JazzTimes

 

French vocalist Cyrille Aimée will hit Rockwood Music Hall (Stage 2) in New York on Tuesday, September 9 at 7:30PM in celebration of her debut album on Mack Avenue Records, It’s A Good Day.  

 

Winner of both the Montreux Jazz Festival’s International Vocal Competition and the Sarah Vaughan International Vocal Competition, Aimée explores a range of musical styles, eras and moods on her new release, It’s A Good Day. Produced by Fab DuPont (Shakira, Jennifer Lopez), Aimée seduces with her singular voice on inventive arrangements.

The musical accompaniment on It’s A Good Day is as novel as Aimée herself: three guitars (Jazz, Gypsy and Brazilian) with bass and drums. This captivating multi-guitar sound is provided by her close collaborator, Michael Valeanu, a player of French and Italian extraction on a contemporary jazz-style electric guitar; her countryman Adrien Moignard on the steel-string guitar gypsies favor for its piercing, staccato sound; and the Brazilian guitarist Guilherme Monteiro, who relies on a nylon-stringed instrument which provides soft and undulating sensuous sonorities.

 

It’s A Good Day features catchy original compositions such as “Bamboo Shoots”, “Twenty-eight”, “One Way Ticket” and “Nuit Blanche” along with an entrancing set of standards.

 

Infused by a novel blend of multicultural influences, a fresh group sound and propelled by a voice that is sublime, It’s A Good Day makes for a great day for a vast array of music lovers.

 

About Cyrille Aimée:

Vocalist Cyrille Aimée was primarily raised in France by a French father and Dominican mother. As a child she snuck out of her bedroom window on summer nights wandering into nearby gypsy encampments filled with those attending the annual Django Reinhardt Festival in Samois-sur-Seine. She quickly fell in love with their music and way of life, and was captivated to the point of traveling throughout Europe where she and her musician friends would play and sing on street corners across the continent. This tour eventually led her to the Montreux Jazz Festival, where she won first prize in their vocal competition-which included the financing of her first self-produced album. Aimée auditioned for the French version of American Idol, for which she was selected to be a finalist. Informed she would have to sing only what she was told, her gypsy and jazz spirit rebelled. She left the competition. She now happily tours the world with her band as well as in a duo setting with Brazilian guitarist Diego Figueiredo. Aimée’s talents recently caught the attention of Stephen Sondheim who cast her in an Encores Special Presentation at New York City’s City Center in November 2013.
