I'm an artist inspired by life, love, and beautiful things young and old. My inspirations range from Patsy Cline and Buddy Holly to The Cramps, Neko Case and Oingo Boingo. I saw the movie Cry Baby when I was 8 and fell madly in love with the 50s.

Biography

Pretty like a pistol, and sassy like a tequila sunrise, soulful redhead Dominique Pruitt is here to shimmy your coconut tree with her own brand of retro pop that'll have you craving a classic convertible getaway to a mid-century modern paradise. At age 9, Dominique's course of her young life was changed when she saw the John Waters' film Cry Baby, and there it was--she was madly in love with all things 1950s, especially the music, and there was no escaping it. As she got older, everything about the 1940s and 1960s snuck into that special place in her heart as well. Her musical style follows the same cues with major nods to the sounds of bygone eras, updating her pop Patsy Cline and 60s beach vibes with hints of Nick Lowe and The Cramps. Growing up high on a hill in the Valley outside of Los Angeles, she made up imaginary friends when she was a small child, and this is where her love of story-telling began. Her parents and all of their friends were professional musicians, so being surrounded by eccentric music makers was just normal life. Her singing career started as a young girl, and her first audience was actually her horse, who would listen while walking for hours on a dusty trail. Shes a flea market treasure scourer, a tiki drink sipper, a rhinestone cowgirl--really, she still has horses--and loves all that sparkles. Today she still sings to her horse, but much more so for her fans around Los Angeles. Dominique has an interesting writing partner, her Dad (with a pretty weird past)but that's a whole other story. She is ready to release her debut, and cant wait to let everyone hear what she's been cookin' up.
