ARO (pronounced “arrow”), is a singer and songwriter who, at age 16, shunned the family spotlight and embraced anonymity in pursuit of an authentic musical career of her own. “It’s natural to want to rebel against what your parents do,” explains Aimée. “Once I accepted music was my path, I rebelled by wanting to do it my own way. I also didn’t think it was respectful to my father’s career and creativity to assume that I could jump on the back of all he had worked his entire life for.”
Instead, the young artist spent her time browsing the aisles of record stores, discovering and being inspired by artists such as Kate Bush, Peter Gabriel, Talking Heads, Johnny Cash, Doris Day, Björk, Portishead, Massive Attack and soul great Minnie Riperton. Clearly, her love of the avant-garde, dark, and cinematic music paid off.
