A.J. Benoit embodies a purity of spirit in her singing that is the essence of inspired vocalists I have encountered. Her singing is full of passion, focus and creativity.”
Aimee-Jo Benoit’s approach to Jazz, particularly Joni Mitchell’s songbook, is heartfelt, whimsical, fresh and creative. She’s an artist whose beautiful humanity and sensitive approach to life cannot be separated from what she brings to the music, on recording and in performance.
Aimee-Jo is a gifted artist. She has a deep sense of the jazz tradition and swings with a lightness. She has a very developed sound and a maturity to her approach.
You’d have to have a heart of stone not to be by seduced Aimee-Jo Benoit’s vocal on Little Wings.

The slow, almost hymn-like Little Wings features a stunning [Aimee-Jo Benoit}, proclaiming “love causes pain”, infused with sorrow as the two voices merge.
Sharing vocal duties with one of the (unnamed) gals [Aimee-Jo Benoit] on the gentle ‘Little Wings’ proves the most charming moment on an album chock full of them (the sublime orchestration of ‘Hermit’ yet another), her silky gossamer vocals an exquisitely delicate counterpoint to Hamilton’s easygoing delivery.
