Groovin' with Amel Larrieux!

Amel Larrieux - Ice Cream EverydayAmel Larrieux Returns!

It's been a little over six years since Amel Larrieux released a album and a little under 9 months since she performed at City Winery.  Well, she's back!

Ice Cream Everyday has been in the works for over five years!  We were lucky to hear a few of the new songs during Amel's performance on December 22, 2012 when she graced the City Winery stage for the first time.  She doesn't seem to have aged at all!  She flitted gracefully through her notes and across the stage in her trademark style. It was truly a family affair, with her husband, Laru Larrieux on sound and her daughter, Sky Larrieux on keys and vocals.

The CD is now scheduled to be released on October 1st, but the first single, Afraid, from Ice Cream Everyday was released June.  Have a listen!  If you attended her concert on December 22nd at City Winery, you'll probably be back this Saturday!

Amel Larrieux performs Saturday, September 21st - get the details{***Note that this performance may have been postponed until November 7th***.}

We first fell in love with Amel Larrieux as a member of Groove Theory.  Let's take a trip back down memory lane with Tell Me while we wait for Saturday to get here!
