Dominique Fils-Aimé - The Red (EP)
Dominique Fils-Aimé is a Polaris Music prize-nominated singer-songwriter from Montreal who draws inspiration from soul icons of the 40’s and 60’s such as Billie Holiday, Etta James, and Nina Simone. While her musical roots are grounded in early soul and jazz, her sound transcends contemporary urban soundscapes.
Dominique’s self-produced debut, “The Red” EP, was originally released in 2015. This new version from KingUnderground has been fully remastered and includes a live version of “Love of Yours” as well as two bonus instrumentals.
Sultry vocals follow melancholy guitar and organ on “Like Mama Said.” Dominique’s calming voice is akin to a meld of Sade and Amy Winehouse. While the edgy ‘When You See Me’’ has a hypnotic, catchy groove and chorus, she shows off her versatility with a stripped down, acoustic blues-tinged piece on “Ok With You.”
The songs were recorded live in the studio in only a few takes with minimal overdubs to capture the unconstrained depth of expression and natural impulse. The faintest of imperfections in the recordings were preserved in an effort to speak the truth, as the nature of her songs reflect on the vulnerability and strength in each of us and their delicate balance. Dominique unifies each song on the record with empowering lyrics, bringing such a commanding voice and precise delivery, you could almost imagine her singing the theme for a new Bond movie.
This cinematic RnB & jazz-inflected debut by one of Montreal’s finest soul singer-songwriters is available for the first time on high-quality vinyl.
