Aimée Allen

Born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Aimée Allen's intimate connection with music began as a child. Her childhood was literally scored with classic jazz, because her mother kept selections from the tradition on the family turntable. This influence can be heard in Aimée's musical style and interpretation. But listeners can also hear Aimée's individual voice, nuanced and sparkling with soul and sensuality.

After graduation, Aimée moved to Paris where she performed regularly in jazz clubs and festivals
