Three Little Words concludes Dominique Fils-Aimé's album trilogy exploring the roots of African-American musical culture. Her 2018 acclaimed debut full length blues-tinged Nameless saw Fils-Aimé boldly confront historical silences and sorrows while her sophomore JUNO award winning album, Stay Tuned! delved into the civil rights movement of the 60s through jazz.
Now with Three Little Words Dominique embraces the emotional lushness of soul music of yesterday and tomorrow. Perhaps her most musically diverse and eclectic album to date, Fils-Aimé's distinct brand of incisively-delivered vocals resonate throughout Three Little Words, 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".
Throughout the album, 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. Integral to the trilogy as a whole has been the tireless work of acclaimed record producer, musical arranger and mixer Jacques Roy.
