Her exuberant, free-spirited charm can be heard on albums such as “It’s A Good Day” (2014) and “Let’s Get Lost” (2016). The album “Cyrille Aimée Live” (2018) received critical acclaim from The New York Times and Wall Street Journal.
Born and raised in France but now living in New Orleans, her most recent album was as a collaborator and vocalist with the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra on “Petite Fleur” (2021).
