Domenic is an acclaimed multi-instrumentalist, vocalist and composer/producer who has travelled the world sharing his music as a solo artist and as co-founder/lead vocalist of the innovative acoustic roots band Praying for the Rain. Musician magazine calls him, “a deeply soulful and compelling musician and storyteller who brings a rich, uncluttered quality to his music that fills his songs with evocative imagery and lyrical narrative”. Net Rhythms magazine says "mature and eloquent, intimate, passionate and with haunting performances... quietly stunning…" He has toured throughout Europe, Canada, Africa, Japan and the Middle East and has performed at festivals such as Glastonbury, Womad and Stainsby and at London’s Union Chapel and South Bank. His work with Praying for the Rain, who are known for their dynamic and compelling live performances, blends contemporary folk, Celtic and world music with irresistible rhythms, memorable melodies, beautifully crafted vocals and inspired musicianship. Their music brings to mind a modern blend of Crosby, Stills and Nash, Robert Plant, to Fleet Foxes and Peter Gabriel, creating a truly uplifting experience. “just can't stop the potency of their music and the uncanny enchantment it spreads amongst all of us who have been fortunate enough to hear the music and follow their journey”. Max Reinhardt BBC 3 Late Junction Sharing with other cultures has made its way into many aspects of Domenic's singing, writing and music. Through the language of music and his study of sound, he has come to a broader understanding of the world around him. Originally from Canada with Italian heritage, after many years living in London, now makes his home in Somerset. This special performance at the Chapel Arts Centre will celebrate the release of the new album, Seeds of Evergreen and will feature songs from the CD as well as music from his previous releases and a selection of Praying for the Rain material. Domenic will be joined by a list of celebrated musicians including: Chris Hurn - cello, Tom Pepler - drums, Paul Sax - violin, Delagh King - vocals, Richard Kennedy - vocals, Mal Darwen - bass, vocals, Amanda Easton - vocals, percussion, Vince DeCicco - accordion. Expect an exhilarating night of high energy, movement and wonderfully engaging songs. Seeds of Evergreen - the new album Domenic releases his 3rd solo album. The themes are touching in their purity and convey a sense of honesty and vulnerability that draws the listener in from the start. Singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Domenic defies any easy label. The collection of songs stir in their own sensibilities and haunting melodies, crossing between contemporary acoustic folk, touches of roots and world music, and even his flavour of country and jazz. His wealth of musical styles and smooth and expressive voice are all skillfully blended into a seamless flow of music from the heart that absorbs the listener entirely into the narratives of each piece. He has a chameleon voice, sometimes rough and husky, sometimes sweet and clear. There are fleeting glimpses of Dylan and Paul Simon in his delivery; his voice is strong and true, capable of passion and drama as well as gentleness. Folking.com "Packed full of well-crafted songs and beautifully played throughout, so if the idea of an easygoing, rootsy album perfect for a Sunday morning appeals, you won’t do much better than Seeds Of Evergreen".
