GuilFest 2011 - Lineup


Hailing from Liphook, Hampshire, Aimée is a 16 year old professional singer/songwriter who has been performing regularly on the local music scene in Berkshire, Hampshire, Sussex and Surrey. Following the release of "Afraid
of the Dark" and "Nowhere" on iTunes, Aimée is busy writing a whole raft of new material which she is currently trialling at local music evenings.

In June 2009, having qualified via audition through Regional Finals and then Area Finals at Princes Hall, Aldershot, Aimée performed in the National Finals of Live and Unsigned at Portsmouth Guildhall in front of judges, the late Malcolm Mclaren, Annie Nightingale (Radio 1), Dane Bowers and Martin O'Shea (Atomic Kitten's Manager) and was judged to be in the top 5 in the country in her genre. Aimée was also judged to be winner in the under 18's Singer/Songwriter category at Gigtime Media's "Spotlight 4 Stars" show, staged at Jongleurs flagship club in Battersea, South London.

Aimée has a love for performing at festivals and in 2011 has been booked to perform at Guilfest, WeyFest, Basingstoke Live, OnionFest, Madhurst and Loxwood Beer and Music Festival. As well as her regular shows on the local circuit, Aimée has made numerous radio appearances with BBC Surrey, Delta Radio, Wave 105FM, Eagle 964FM, Brooklands FM, Radio Lion, Radio Wey, Covent Garden Radio and Radio Basingstoke. A caller to Mark Carter's Breakfast Show on BBC Surrey likened Aimée's style to that of Kirsty MacColl, other audiences have mentioned Avril Lavigne, Suzanne Vega, Alanis Morissette and Michelle Branch.

"What a talent. At 15 years old, the youngest performer on the Guilfest Backline Live Acoustic Stage, Aimée performing alongside music legends 10CC and Mungo Jerry delivered a contrasting set of self-penned alongside some well known classic and contemporary tracks. Her vocal prowess and the lyrical content of her songs belies her tender age which alongside the experience and professionalism that she showed in her performance at GuilFest 2010 can only mean that she has a fantastic future ahead of her.
