Jazz singer Cyrille Aimee was raised in France, built a fanbase in the Dominican Republic, and now lives in New York City. Her musical career is similarly diverse. Aimee has experimented with jazz of all styles, including the gypsy type made famous by Django Reinhardt.
Cyrille Aimee has even made a foray into pop - the singer was a finalist to be cast on a French "American Idol"-type reality show before dropping out to focus on jazz. As a performer, Aimee has won praise from all corners for her unique vocal style and willingess to try new things. But chances are, those things are anything but new to Cyrille herself.
