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. Though singing was a part of her childhood, Aimée first began singing professionally with jazz a cappella groups in college. After graduation, Aimée moved to Paris where she performed regularly in jazz clubs and festivals

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
