about

'Stay Tuned!' is Dominique Fils-Aimé’s sophomore album, the follow-up to her debut full length 'Nameless', part of her trilogy that brings to center stage the resiliency of mankind in the face of adversity and oppression and pays homage to Afro-American history and culture.

In this second recording, containing 14 original songs, Dominique delves into the civil rights movement of the 60s and explores several significant socio-political events which deeply affected the course of black history (Lincoln Hills Country Club, Little Nine Rock, Emmett Till). She honours unsung heroes of the civil liberties movement as well as historical figures of the time such as Rosa Parks, Joséphine Baker, Lena Horne, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King.

The album combines elements of soul, jazz, gospel and blends vocal harmonies, double bass, piano and trumpet over stirring and permuting grooves. Stay Tuned!’s lush vocal arrangements bring out Dominique’s voice as a stand-alone instrument, giving prominence to the words and the message she carries. Part rebellious and fiery, part sentimental and intimate, Dominique embodies afro-american music from then and now, all the while highlighting its defying power in a violent and divisive society. Breaking away from the standards of traditional compositions, the singer and songwriter presents a body of work focused on liberated musical forms hinting at the spirit of jazz.

Moving 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.

Track Name: Gun Burial
The way you change your heart
When you change your mind
Makes you change your ways with me

See I cannot deny it
Everything you do’s blind sighting me
Like someone pulled a trigger
Did I pull the trigger
Did I pull the trigger
Did I bury the gun

Fact that you’d burn down Paradise
Within the blink of a random eye
Makes me wonder what’s left for Hell to look like
For Hell to look like

Wanting me to beg and plead
Every Sunday on my knee
Something here don’t feel right
Cause you don’t treat me right

You don’t treat me like the queen you keep telling me you see
You don’t treat me like the queen you keep telling me you see
You don’t treat me like the queen we both know I’ll always be

More than you want me
The lovely sound of you
Will never let me be the same
But I won’t betray you
Even though you keep me astray
The ugly sound of you

Sadly you treat me
Like I am nothing but a fool
Someday just watch me
Break every single rule

Could someone
Carry me carry me home
(What is home?)
Carry me carry me home
