"Blue Pie Records Music Review"

Lou Dominguez new album is more than meets the ears!
01/11/2013

Lou Dominguez is back on the music scene and has released a new album titled 'We The People' that stands out from hit tracks. The album includes new tracks that are more than just catchy beats. Instead of repetitive and catchy lyrics, Lou’s songs tell a story that many will be inspired, heartfelt, or intrigued about. Lou Dominguez even tells the story behind one of the songs in the album:

“Cornelius Dupree was convicted of a crime he did not commit. He spent 30 years in prison because he refused to make a plea bargain or to admit guilt and be released with time served. I can't stand being accused of a mistake when it's not my fault, so this kind of story has always intrigued me. The manner and the dignity with which he handled this awful period of time is nothing short of remarkable.Cornelius Dupree was freed with the help of the Innocence Project, and now works with the project helping free other wrongfully convicted innocents.”

To share the excitement of his new album release, Lou Dominguez has even released a free song titled ‘The Facebook Song’ that you can download on his official website here. The song explores the truth about Facebook and the damaging effect it can have on its users. So if you’re tired of listening to the same old repetitive catchy songs on the chart hits, venture outside you comfort music zone and give Lou Dominguez album a go in the link below. We guarantee you won’t be disappointed! - Blue Pie


"Acoustic Live NYC"

Lou Dominguez - We the People

This album has a simple, homespun feel. The singing is no-frills, straightforward storytelling by a Jersey boy of Cuban heritage. Lou Dominguez’s parents fled the Castro regime in the 1950s. They seem to have imparted a passion for what democracy is supposed to mean. While I was slow to warm to its low-key approach, I couldn’t resist “Citizens United.” This guy’s been reading my mail. There’s a party on the hill, you and me we ain’t invited / Citizens United / The lobbies and the super PACs are all super excited / Citizens United / They argued corporations and people are the same / Five judges rushed it through in the thick of night, rigged the game / Now money equals speech but my speech can’t buy a thing / We had them on the ropes, they bought the referee and ring / Charles and David Koch are delighted / Citizens United. As far as I’m concerned, that encapsulates the situation as good as anything I’ve said or read. Lou also tackles our inability to deal with our gun crisis, our imperfect justice system, veterans returning from war with post traumatic stress disorder, crazy Facebook rules and a few other current topics. His approach is simple and earnest. It can seem like preaching at times, but I find myself agreeing with him anyway. A lot of food for thought here. - Acoustic Live
