Montreal-based Dominique Fils-Aimé’s inspiration is drawn from soul icons of the ’40s and the ’60s like Billie Holiday, Etta James, and Nina Simone. While her musical roots are grounded in early soul and jazz, her branches glide through contemporary urban soundscapes.
Stay Tuned!, the second album of her trilogy, moves on from the 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.
