Cyrille Aimée - à Fleur de Peau LP



French singer/songwriter Cyrille Aimée, a matchless interpreter of song, is back with a new album and a new story to tell. 'à Fleur de Peau' presents Cyrille in her own words, with her own original compositions presented in her own arrangements, developed in close collaboration with New York multi-instrumentalist and producer Jake Sherman.

The music on 'à Fleur de Peau' is the most original and personal of Cyrille's career. Drawing on her Dominican heritage with its cargo of African dance rhythms and Spanish folksongs, embracing the directness and simplicity of contemporary pop forms, singing tales straight from her own life, this is Cyrille as you have never heard her before. The album's genesis originates far from New York or her adopted New Orleans home, deep within the forests of Costa Rica and an astonishing tale of a creative rebirth.

At the heart of each recording is a live performance by Cyrille, accompanying herself with voice and guitar or baritone ukulele: then together they would add layers of arrangement, using Cyrille's trademark vocal improvisations to suggest horn lines, percussion parts and counter melodies which Sherman would re-create on his array of vintage instruments. The results are uniformly appealing in their direct honesty but diverse in their sound.

Cyrille says "I want to inspire women to create: with their hands, their wombs, their voices, whatever inspires them." She's created an album that is deeply intimate and personal yet completely open and accessible to all and marked a new chapter in her journey as an artist.
