A few words about Dominique Fillon
Lulled by the classical music that his father listened to every day and the English-language pop that his three brothers loved, it was at the age of 11 that Dominique Fillon began to compose and learn the piano.
Jazz pianist in the bars of the city of Le Mans, he left high school to dedicate himself full-time to music, and moved to Paris in 1989 to join the American School of Modern Music.
It was in the 2000s that the publisher Michel Fedoroff suggested to him to make a piano-based album.
This idea kicked off his solo career with his first album, “Detours”. Subsequently, he composed and recorded three further albums.
