Aimée Allen's music is the fruit of her trans-continental musical experiences and her talents as a writer. Her repertoire includes warm, soulful originals blending latin and classic jazz influences with her original voice, nuanced and sparkling with soul and sensuality. Born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Aimée Allen's intimate connection with music began early. Her childhood was literally scored with classic jazz, because her mother kept selections from the tradition on the family turntable.
Though she sang as a child, Aimée first began singing professionally with jazz a cappella groups in college. After graduation, Aimée moved to Paris where she performed regularly in jazz clubs and festivals. The deep relationship between the francophone audiences and Brazilian bossa nova, led Aimée to form Les Bossa Novices, a Paris-based group dedicated to bossa and jazz.
Aimée now performs regularly in New York City and abroad. Standards and bossa are part of her repertoire, but now an accomplished composer, she also sings her original songs, many of which have become audience favorites. She has released 4 albums and in addition to performing regularly in New York, she has also toured in France, Russia, and Senegal. Her original music has been licensed for feature film and network television.
“A brilliant singer and even more thoughtful lyricist” - H. Allen Williams, JazzTimes
“A fully fledged composer, lyricist and vocalist, her ideas are filled with depth and meaning and her lyrics profoundly unique.” - Constance Tucker, All About Vocals
"It's difficult not to be impressed by Aimée Allen, both as a jazz singer and as a songwriter. It would be very surprising if Aimée Allen did not become a household name in jazz." -Scott Yanow, Jazz Inside Magazine
“She takes her melodic energy and carries it into an improvisatory world very much of her own making” – Raul de Gama, Latin Jazz Network
