Cyrille Aimee

“Now the French singer Cyrille Aimee throws open the door on how to express Sondheim’s word-driven songs in the language of jazz, without sacrificing the lyrics’ intelligence, wit, perspicacity, and character-defining qualities. ”  — The Sydney Morning Herald
“Brand new band, brand new life, brand new music… truly moving on, as only Aimée can.”
— Carol Banks Weber, Festival Peak

The genius of Stephen Sondheim stems from the revered composer’s ability to plumb universal human emotions even in the form of the most outré characters be they cannibalistic barbers, presidential assassins, or fairy tale witches. The acclaimed vocalist Cyrille Aimée discovered that gift first-hand as she took a deep dive into the Sondheim songbook for her scintillating new album, Move On: A Sondheim Adventure.

What began as a celebration of a legendary Broadway songwriter became a work of cathartic autobiography as one song after another captured her deepest personal feelings.“I get goosebumps just thinking about it,” Aimée says. “At the moment that I was working on this album I was going through a lot of life changes. The more I listened to the songs, the more I realized they were really connected to what I was going through. At a very rough time, these songs were saving me.
