“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
