Aimee Mann isn’t just good at cleaning the Portlandia crew’s house and putting on a cozy show in their living room—though admittedly, it is precisely her soul-baring sound that begs for such intimate settings. One of the inventors of Acoustic Vaudeville, a mix of stand-up comedy and singer-songwriter type tunes, Mann has built a name for herself in her 30 year career, churning out album after album of everything from Christmas ditties and conceptual pieces to somber affairs, all wrapped in that wistful acoustic aesthetic that never ceases to draw people to her music.
