"Review, I Love Paris"

Complimentary Feedback from TAXI, The World's Leading Independent A & R Company on Aimee Petra's song "I Love Paris" off her new CD, "Too Much Fun":

The music has a good feel along with a strong vocal performance. The vocal range is in good form-the recording showcases your chops as well as your control in the higher range. Good job. The song choice is great as it allows you to create a performance on a familiar song while creating a derivative fresh version. The groove feels and shadows the type of shuffle Django made popular with gypsy swing. - Taxi A & R

Bio

An exceptional talent, Aimee Petra boasts a 4-octave range of dynamic color and presence. Rooted in musical theatre and later classically trained, Aimee has performed and recorded music of varying styles. After many years singing opera, classical and musical theatre throughout the United States, she decided to switch gears in 2008 and explore the world of jazz. Her debut jazz album, Too Much Fun, was released late summer 2008 to national & international acclaim. In 2010, Aimee released three new Jazz singles, two of which were featured on the All About Jazz websites “Daily Download” feature just days after their release. Her music is also featured on the #2 vocal jazz station, hosted by Esther Berlanga-Ryan, at Live365.com. This is an exciting time for Aimee as she continues to spotlight songs by hot new songwriters & has begun writing her own music. Her collaborations with a variety of talented musicians have introduced her music to a global audience.

Aimee's repertoire includes jazzed up, modern takes on the best of the American songbook from the 30s, 40s, & 50s, combined with swinging new tunes & intimate ballads. She and her band have wide audience appeal packing in crowds from twenty somethings up to the over 65 crowd. From intimate clubs, large, upscale events & concerts, to family friendly events and music festivals, people love her music because it is fun and makes you feel good! Her powerful vocals are a perfect match with the talented jazz musicians in her band. She also performs with a reduced band or keyboard only depending on the event or venue. Her sparkling style and rich vocals are truly one of a kind! For more info visit www.myspace.com/aimeepetra and www.aimeepetra.com.
