New York based French singer Cyrille Aimee is making heads turn in both the US and Europe with her fresh sound and wonderfully communicative style. Since making the finals in the prestigious Thelonious Monk competition in New York, she has become one of the most talked about new faces in the jazz vocal stable. Possessing a warm, enchanting voice that she uses with great control whether singing ballads or more up-tempo numbers, Cyrille communicates with audiences across genre boundaries with an ease usually found only in veterans.
Her band includes two Australians who are part of her New York working band - Raj Jayaweera and Sam Anning, and Sydney based award-winning guitarist Aaron Flower. Cyrille is in Australia for appearances at the Wangaratta Festival of Jazz and Blues.
