Following 2018's blues tinted Nameless and 2019's jazz-inflected and Juno Award winning Stay Tuned!, singer-songwriter Dominique Fils-Aimé completes her trilogy of albums exploring the palette of African-American musical traditions, this time leaning heavily on soul music with the February 2021 release of her much anticipated record Three Little Words.

Her debut drew inspiration from Maya Angelou's poem "Still I Rise" and brought to light historical silences with the enduring power of blues while Stay Tuned! delved into the revolutionary spirit of jazz. Now with Three Little Words Fils-Aimé ends the trilogy in the light by embracing the emotional lushness of soul music of yesterday and tomorrow.

Her distinct brand of incisively-delivered vocals resonate throughout, whether they are engaging the listener with the heartwarming 1950s-inspired doo-wop harmonies of While We Wait, or with the punchy brass-fueled crescendos of the more soulful Mind Made Up. Dominique's captivating yet gentle voice is backed by the spellbinding groove of African percussion, horns, synthesizer and expansive bass lines, the likes of which are never more prevalent than in Love Take Over with its coaxing, melodramatic drums that envelop the listener in a primal and soothing aural embrace.

Upon its release Three Little Words peaked to #1 in Quebec and #2 in Canada setting the stage for a successful tour in Quebec over the next few months followed by Europe and the rest of Canada later this year.

These societal issues that Dominique Fils-Aimé skillfully puts on the table with each song and which give this project a rare resonance and depth.
