Dominique Fils-Aimé presents Three Little Words, the final chapter in her album trilogy that delves into the legacy of African American music. From the stripped-down blues tones on her debut album, to the jazz inflections of her second opus, the latest recording (released in February 2021) embraces the emotional lushness of soul music. On stage, whether in Canada, Europe or the United States, Dominique Fils-Aimé draws the listener in with her vocal swagger and radiant glow.

Following her remarkable entrance on the music scene in 2018 with Nameless, Dominique Fils- Aimé's sophomore album Stay-Tuned! won several awards including the JUNO for Vocal Jazz

Album of the Year in Canada, the Felix for Jazz Album of the Year at the ADISQ Gala (Quebec) in addition to being shortlisted for the Polaris Music Prize, a mention she received for a second consecutive time with her latest album, Three Little Words.
