I grew up in Weaverville, a small gold rush town in Northern California. In late July, The Carr Fire threatened my town, and destroyed much of Trinity and Shasta Counties. There were 36,000 evacuations, 1,604 buildings lost, 8 lives taken, and much hope lost. My heart is in that place, and with those wonderful people who though they have lost much, still have each other and their memories. Photographs, taken by Jeff Dye in 2010, when the oaks and manzanitas were green and thriving, the lake was surrounded with lush forest, and the remnants of the mining town "Old Shasta" was painted with a beautiful backdrop of green and blossoms.

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 video is about Aimee Nolte Live At The Roasting Room (With Taylor Roberts And Justin Varnes) July 2018 Bluffton, South Carolina. I’d like to let you know I got the audio from the house mix at the Roasting Room. Unfortunately, the guitar level in the house was low and distorting at times. It wasn’t that way in the monitors that night...but anyway I’m sorry about the distortion. Also, the video switches about half way through to a worse camera and angle but it’s the best I could do. I was also borrowing a keyboard that was new to me and making me feel uncomfortable all night...but when you are traveling and gigging you get what you get sometimes. Hope you all enjoy it. It was a fun night!
First single from Aimee Nolte's upcoming album!
The Loveliest Girl is the first music I've released in 9 years. It is my arrangement of a Matthew Clark composition, and in this video I walk you through how it came to be; the instrumentation, the orchestrations, the recording techniques and texual painting - everything that went into the creation and production of this piece, and
I hope you enjoy it. Stay tuned for the soon-to-be-released single!
On July 11, 2018 in Bluffton, South Carolina at a great listening space/bar called "The Roasting Room," I got to perform with one of my favorite people on the planet. Hope you enjoy it!
My good friend, Tama Shutts came over today for a vocal duet over Rhythm Changes. Super Fun! If you'd like to see more duets from Tama and I, check Jam Of The Week on Facebook. You can see Tama perform if you're in So Cal over at Cal State Long Beach with "Pacific Standard Time."
This is one of my favorite standards. I really had a nice time playing this one. I hope you enjoy it. Thank you for your support and for subscribing and sharing with your friends! Aimee Nolte
