Cyrille Aimée

3rd June 2024

Combining the depth and sophistication of jazz, the immediacy of pop, the irrepressible dance rhythms of the Caribbean, Cyrille Aimée has developed a remarkable multi-award winning, continent-spanning career as a singer, songwriter, lyricist, and educator.

Growing up in a multilingual household full of music and dancing, Cyrille would climb out of her bedroom window at night to mingle with the players of the annual Django Reinhardt Festival, igniting a passion for jazz.

Moving to New York City, her talents quickly gained her a reputation among her peers. She performed and recorded with Roy Hargrove and stole the show in front of the notoriously hard-to-please crowd at the Harlem Apollo. Her 2019 album Move On featured versions of Steven Sondheim’s songs which received praise from Sondheim himself, and her version of ‘Marry Me a Little’, was nominated for a 2019 GRAMMY Award.

Cyrille’s latest album, A Fleur de Peau, sees her team up with producer/multi-instrumentalist Jake Sherman and is released this summer.
