Today we’d like to introduce you to Dylan Dominguez.
Dylan, we’d love to hear your story and how you got to where you are today both personally and as an artist.
I was always drawn to sound as a child. Listening to the rhythm of the trains and the noises of the city. Music quickly became something where I could feel safe, at the piano, singing. I could express my deepest feelings and ideas without regret. It became my safe place away from my father’s drug and gang affiliations and gave me confidence in finding a community where I feel I could belong. Through music, it gave me the confidence to fight through the struggle, the self battles and ignited self-love and acceptance. I found myself.
We’d love to hear more about your art. What do you do and why and what do you hope others will take away from your work?
I create music not that I think I would want to hear, but that I would want to make me feel a certain way. The first question I ask myself is, “how do I want to feel?“. And I go from there. Improvisation on the piano or free writing poetry is a huge method of discovery. If I want to feel like I’m flying, or a feeling of belonging, or a feeling of ecstasy, that’s what I improvise and then go into the recording studio and write and record. It’s hard for me to define my music, to some it might sound like contemporary R&B or folk, Singer songwriter inspired, gospel-inspired, or even Broadway.
Artists face many challenges, but what do you feel is the most pressing among them?
Being heard & consistency
Among the mass of music online and in social media, what we see is often skewed. Today there is so much information being thrown at us, advertisements, everywhere. It’s important today to seek new artists in your area, locals, who are creating at this moment, today.
Do you have any events or exhibitions coming up? Where would one go to see more of your work? How can people support you and your artwork?
I post a lot of my work on Instagram, YouTube, and social media. I live in a small town, but I film gigs that I perform. I hope to start traveling more and collaborating with like-minded musicians, classical, jazz, R&B, musical theater, etc. People can support my work by going to my social media, visiting my YouTube, I Instagram, and telling their friends and coworkers about my work. I also write music for film and accept emails and phone calls and DMs.
