Abstract

Singer-songwriter Aimee Mann has been creating music, both as a solo artist and as a former member of the band 'Til Tuesday, for the past twenty years. In general, musicological and cultural-critical reception of her work has proceeded along traditional lines of inquiry applied to countless female artists, viewing her work in terms of the representation of gender issues. This study, however, aims to treat Mann's music from a more broadly aesthetic perspective, examining such details as text painting, instrumentation, and harmonic language in an effort to identify the unique elements of her artistry.
