Madame Groove is one of the smoothest musicians around.

We were introduced to Aliyah Stephens at a mid-week Replay show, where she quickly won over fans with her sultry bass lines and sleek vocals. This is the type of music you listen to when you’re in the mood for something completely fluid and easy– a little bit of R&B, a little bit of pop, and all things soothing. The Manhattan musician could appear on the soundtrack to anyone’s breezy summer. She dabbles in both covers and originals during her live sets.

You can watch a clip from her performance below (that’s her 13 year-old brother on drums, by the way), and catch her at the Lied Center on Tuesday at 8:00 p.m.
