New York City based artist Dominique began writing and singing from the early age of five years old. Born and raised in St. Petersburg, Florida, she crafted rough productions of her original music on GarageBand while in high school, performing these at coffee shops and local talent shows. At age 18, Dominique moved to New York City to pursue a degree in Biology at NYU, choosing to keep her music as a hobby. However, the thriving NYC music scene eventually inspired her to take writing and producing more seriously and she began learning how to use the production software Ableton Live.
In the fall of 2014, Dominique released her debut single, “It’s Only You” which she co-produced and recorded with fellow NYU student ZeniF. The track was discovered by her current management The Undscvrd just a few weeks later and was subsequently featured on numerous blogs, thus leading to it charting on Hype Machine’s Popular chart. After finishing her degree at NYU, Dominique embarked on her music career full-time and chose to become the sole producer behind her music. Her debut, self-titled EP was released in December 2016, singles from which were featured on Spotify’s New Music Friday playlist, Huw Stephen’s BBC Radio 1 show, Entertainment Weekly, and many other playlists and online blog articles.
2017 initiated new endeavors for Dominique, as she began writing and producing for other artists alongside working on her own artist project. July 2017 saw the release of “Use Me,” which CLASH magazine claimed “an outrageous return, all lyrical suggestion and rolling beats that recall Lorde or Grime's more overtly pop statements.” The track shot to number 3 on Hype Machine’s Popular chart and received praise from NME, The Line of Best Fit, and Kick Kick Snare, alongside numerous others.
Her single “Use Me” was the beginning of a shift in artistic direction for Dominique, and she is now working on an upcoming EP that showcases similar sounds and ideas. Dominique is also currently meticulously crafting her live show, expecting to make her live debut sometime in summer 2018.
