Awards

October 2010: Finalist in the Thelonious Monk International Voice Competition. July 2007: Winner of the first prize and the special public prize in the Montreux Jazz Festival Voice Competition.
“She’s alert and thoroughly engaged in the logic of moving harmony when she improvises, one of those singers whom nonsinging musicians call “a musician”. “Her singing is focused and playful, full of feeling, space and light.” The New York Times

“Twenty-six-year-old Cyrille Aimée, with a voice like fine whiskey -- oaky and smooth, with a hint of smokiness -- sang in a kind of intimate communion with one raised hand, held before her face, in the stream of her singing, like a trumpet mute, as if to physically shape the sound.” The Washington Post

“She exudes self-confidence, individuality, great musicality, and a fresh, captivating voice. Cyrille understands communicating with the musicians, as well as the audience. Her arranging capabilities show a maturity beyond her years. I believe in the wonderful, refreshing talents of this young vocalist, and know in my heart that Cyrille is a rising vocalist/musician.” Dee Dee Bridgewater

“Cyrille Aimee is a rare talent, a vocalist that fills your heart, always swings and tells a compelling story. She also improvises with a depth of understanding far beyond her years. Playing with her has always been a joy for me. Like the very best jazz musicians, she raises the energy of everyone around her. She is not to be missed.” Joel Frahm

“Listening to Cyrille almost becomes a sin, her interpretations offer an incomparable delight.” El Caribe, Dominican Republic

“A sublime voice spontaneously built in the heart of the gypsy world.” La République, France
