For over half my life, I've been inspired by Bobby McFerrin. My drive to be better, to push myself, and to always be working on something interesting comes from what I've learned from listening to his recordings and watching everything "Bobby-related" on the internet that I can find. This is a video to say thank you and tell Mr. McFerrin and the whole world what an impact his music and teaching have had on me. Much thanks and love. Aimee
I perform as often as I can all around LA and Orange Counties. Most often, I am playing solo piano and singing, but I also perform with my trio, my duo (called Skirt & Suit with Joshua Payne) and also with whoever asks me to join them, whenever they ask!
Some of my favorite local collaborators are Mike Scott, Shane Savala, Bruce Lett, Lyman Medieros, Steve Cotter, Kendall Kay, and I could go on and on.
I love to play and you can always find my gig dates on the “GIGS” tab of this site.
This is the way I am hearing my improvisations lately. Single lines with the piano, single lines with my voice, lines with both in unison, and lines with both in harmony. It's my favorite thing to work on and I improvised this this morning. If you'd like to support me, you can do so here: https://paypal.me/aimn
A collaboration I did with my rocking friend, Jason Neubauer https://www.youtube.com/user/seemycast is his channel of one of my favorite songs by one of my favorite artists. We change up the feel a bit and the coolest part is that Jason learned my improvised scat solo and played along! We live across the country from each other, so we just virtually made this collab. Prince - Kiss - Super fun and I hope you like it!

Recorded at 2:00am on July 1, 2017 by my sweet new friends, Dominique and Ty Walker from Chicago at The Green Mill. The wonderfully musical and lyrical Eric Shneider ran the jam and invited me to play and then to sing a few tunes. It was an honor to share the stage with this man who has toured with Earl Fatha Hines and Count Basie, as well as to meet and play with the house pianist, Dennis Luxion and some energetic kids who were there to sharpen their skills. It's always an amazing feeling to drive into a new city and immediately have new friends to make music with. Magical.
The wonderful, swinging, Rebecca Kilgore is in town and hanging out with me for a few hours before her concert! We will take your requests and answer any questions you might have for us!
