Aimee Mann

Over the course of her eight-album solo career, Berklee alumna Aimee Mann has established herself as the master of the cerebral rock ballad. With her strong, unique, deadpan vocals, she spins bitingly melodic lyrics that delve into the darker corners of human interaction and intention. Through her acclaimed solo discs Whatever and I'm with Stupid in the '90s, Aimee Mann has always been at the forefront of contemporary songwriters. The close of the millennium brought her greatest success, with the simultaneous releases of Bachelor No.
