The song "Allons à Lafayette" was recorded on April 27, 1928 in New Orleans. Afterwards, she performed across southern Louisiana and Texas. Cléoma was born into a musical family.

She was the daughter of Auguste Breaux, a Cajun accordion player, and Mathilda Schnexnayder. She also had three brothers Orphy, Clifford, and Amadee with whom she had recorded many albums. Cléoma and her husband had an adopted daughter named Lulu who they brought to dances. Cléoma had an enormous impact on Cajun music. At the time, women had a significantly smaller presence in Cajun Music.

Her vocals and guitar skills fascinated many people. This made her recordings very successful. Besides a successful recording career, she frequently performed in dancehalls, which was considered improper. However, she overcame this stigma, most probably because she was alongside Joe Falcon.

She recorded until 1940, when she was seriously injured by a car; she died from her injuries the following year. Cléoma's importance to Cajun music was recognized when she was the first woman to be inducted into the Cajun Music Hall of Fame in 2002. Read more on Last.fm.
