Following the release of her first self-titled E.P. and subsequent release to iTunes, Amazon and Spotify, Aimée is busy writing a whole raft of new material which she is currently performing at local music evenings.
In June 2009, having qualified via audition through Regional Finals and then Area Finals at Princes Hall, Aldershot, Aimée performed in the National Finals of Live and Unsigned at Portsmouth Guildhall in front of judges, the late Malcolm Mclaren, Annie Nightingale (Radio 1), Dane Bowers and Martin O’Shea (Atomic Kitten’s Manager) and was judged to be in the top 5 in the country in her genre.
Aimée has a love for performing at festivals and was booked to perform at Guilfest, WeyFest, Redfest, Purbeck Folk Festival, Americana International, Basingstoke Live, OnionFest, Madhurst, Loxwood Beer and Music Festival, Haslemere Fringe Festival, Lazy Bishops Festival, Hyfest, Farnham Maltings Festival and Culture in the Park.
As well as her regular shows on the local circuit, Aimée has made numerous radio appearances with BBC Introducing, BBC Surrey, Eagle 96.4, Wave 105.2, Kestrel FM, Brooklands Radio, Radio Lion, Radio Wey, Reading4U, Garrison FM 102.5 and Radio Basingstoke. A caller to Mark Carter’s Breakfast Show on BBC Surrey likened Aimée’s style to that of Kirsty MacColl, other audiences have since mentioned Avril Lavigne, Suzanne Vega, Alanis Morissette and Michelle Branch.
An outstanding BBC Introducing panel review of one of Aimée’s songs has resulted in an invitation to record a session for the BBC.
“What a talent. At 15 years old, the youngest performer on the Guilfest Backline Live Acoustic Stage, Aimée performing alongside music legends 10CC and Mungo Jerry delivered a contrasting set of self-penned alongside some well known classic and contemporary tracks. Her vocal prowess and the lyrical content of her songs belies her tender age which alongside the experience and professionalism that she showed in her performance at GuilFest 2010 can only mean that she has a fantastic future ahead of her. Definitely an act to watch in 2011” – Trevor Rapson – Guilfest Acoustic Stage 2010

“Hailing from Liphook is the vocal prowess, lyrical genius and sheer musicality of Aimée, successful singer/songwriter and just sweet sixteen” – Haslemere Fringe Festival 2012
