Dominique Fils-Aimé is a Polaris Music and JUNO prize-nominated singer-songwriter from Montreal whose inspiration is drawn from soul icons of the 40’s and the 60’s such as Billie Holiday, Etta James and Nina Simone.

Moving on from her 2018 debut full length blues-tinged Nameless—which boldly confronted historical silences and sorrows—Stay Tuned! is both a call for and reminder of revolution expressed with the fury of red-hot jazz. Wanting to break away from the standards of traditional compositions, Dominique presents a body of work focused on liberating herself from musical forms.

Fils-Aimé was chosen as Radio-Canada’s Jazz Revelation of 2019-2020. Her latest record won the Félix prize for Jazz Album of the Year in Quebec at the 2019 ADISQ Gala and the JUNO for vocal jazz album of the year 2020 and has been chosen among the 19 best Canadian albums of 2019 according to CBC.

Following a series of sold out shows in Canada, France and at the Winter Jazz Festival in New York, she will embark on a highly anticipated tour across Europe this summer.

Reviews

Her songs are haunting, often feeling as though they came from a place of both struggle and strength, and leave you hypnotized and singing softly to yourself.
