After originally breaking onto the music scene during the ’80s leading the post-new wave pop group ’Til Tuesday, AIMEE MANN has gone on to establish herself as one of the most distinguished singer-songwriters of her generation. Her successful solo career has spanned several decades with multiple Grammy nominations, one Grammy award, and the release of seven critically acclaimed solo albums, including the profoundly popular soundtrack for the film Magnolia, which garnered an Academy Award nomination for Best Song in 2000. Time magazine has said, “Mann has the same skill that great tunesmiths like McCartney and Neil Young have: the knack for writing simple, beautiful, instantly engaging songs,” while NPR voted her one of the “Top 10 Best Living Songwriters,” along with Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, and Bruce Springsteen. Aimee has been touring continuously on the heels of her most recent album, Smilers (SuperEgo Records) and is currently at work recording her eighth solo album while also penning her first musical based upon her concept album The Forgotten Arm. Earlier this year, Aimee Mann was also honored with an invitation to perform for Poetry Night at the White House for President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama.
