Aimee Mann

Aimee Mann was born in Richmond, Virginia, and attended the Berklee College of Music in Boston, but dropped out to sing with her first punk rock band, the young snakes; the band released the EP Bark Along with the Young Snakes in 1982, and a compilation album was issued in 2004. In 1983, seeking a return to “sweetness and melody”, she co-founded with Berklee classmate and boyfriend Michael Hausman the new wave band ’Til Tuesday, which achieved minor success in 1985 with its first album, Voices Carry. In 1993 Mann released Whatever, her first solo album. Promotion suffered due to the collapse of her label, Imago. While only a small hit, the album was critically praised, and paved the way for her next release, 1995’s I’m with Stupid, through Geffen Records. Again, reviews were positive, but sales were weak. Mann has released a total of 10 solo albums most recent being ‘@#%&*! Smilers
‘ released earlier this year.
