Details & Information
Jazz vocalist and composer/lyricist Aimée Allen sings the standards and bossa nova, but she is best known for her lyrical and soulful original jazz compositions. She'll discuss her songwriting process and methods you can use to tap into your creativity and write your own songs. Born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, vocalist Aimée Allen's intimate connection with music began as a child. Her childhood was scored with jazz, because her mother kept selections from the tradition on the family turntable. Singing at home was part of her family tradition, but Aimée first began singing professionally in college with jazz a cappella groups. 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 in New York City regularly and frequently tours abroad. She has released 6 albums. Now an accomplished songwriter, she includes her own compositions alongside jazz standards in performances. Her original music has been licensed for feature film and network television. She has sung with many renowned jazz musicians including Romero Lubambo, Ron McClure, François Moutin, Roswell Rudd, Ari Hoenig, Joel Frahm, and Yomo Toro. Her latest release, Love & the Catalyst, was nominated for an NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Jazz Vocal Album in 2023.
