Aimee Mann has always had an interesting approach to making music. With a mix of guitar pop anthems and rousing acoustic ballads, her lyrical prowess and dry wit has always kept her on top of her game; probably the reason she is still going strong after nine albums and twenty-five years. And that’s merely her …

Aimee Mann has been a constant on the music scene for many years. From her beginnings with her former band ‘Til Tuesday, she has carved out a long-lasting solo career, with nine albums to date.
