Album Notes
"Her poems take a humorous look at sex and love," --Ryan Davis, Daily Hampshire Review.

Aimee Herman walks up to the microphone, red hair flying off her face in untamed curls. Announces that she's going to read her poetry in a slightly uncommanding voice.

You don't know what to expect. Yet part of you leans in a little closer.

Her small lips part and she begins to speak about cheesecake which makes a lactose-intolerant-sufferer yearn for an entire plate full. She describes a ride on a motorcycle in such a way that afterwards, your hair is wind-blown.

She weaves together food and sex in clever ways. (Just listen to--Within the Curve of the Spoon).

Just be the end of the CD, you may find yourself craving a cigarette, WISH you still had that Catholic schoolgirls uniform, and had hair in the shape of a giant, untamable afro.

She has been featured on the Joey Reynold's Radio Show and several cafe's/bars in CT, NJ, MA, NY, CO. Her chapbooks: tastes like cheesecake (Butcher Shop Press)and if these thighs could talk (RoseWater Publications) can be purchased through emailing her at

Keep an eye out for a new volume of poetry with accompanying spoken word cd newly released from Baobob Tree Press (self diagnosed lactose intolerance).

Intense and Breathtaking - a new talent is born
Listening to this CD is such an intense and breathtaking experience, and the author makes you feel like she's speaking directly to you. For fans of Ani DiFranco, or Eve Ensler, or any woman who has had any experience with food or sex, or any man who wants to hear what a woman REALLY thinks.
