Primarily raised in France by a French-Dominican parentage, French jazz singer Cyrille Aimée was a curious child in Samois-sur-Seine, discovering gypsy music after sneaking out her bedroom window and wandering nearby gypsy encampments. She went on to sing on street corners around Europe and found herself at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 2007, where she won first prize in the vocal competition, kickstarting her jazz career.

Years later in the US, she was a finalist in the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Vocal Competition in 2010, and won the Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Vocal Competition in 2012. Her album It’s a Good Day was described by The New York Times as “a bravura turn, presented with a smile”, and with her latest album Let’s Get Lost, the bright mademoiselle has blossomed into a full-fledged jazz artist.
