DeeAnn Dominy is a Texas-bred and Nashville-based chanteuse and roots rock/country artist. Though she started singing at 5, it was watching Tanya Tucker play at the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo that spurred her interest in country music. With Tanya, Johnny Cash, and eventually Kid Rock as her influences, she began to write songs and perform original music which garnered her a faithful following around the Dallas/Ft Worth area for several years. After moving to Nashville, DeeAnn quickly became recognized for her unique, un-homogenized vocals and authentic songwriting. Honing her craft, she wrote for many Music Row companies including Starstruck Entertainment, Warner Chappell, and Pacific Bridge Music. Since then, she has opened for Vince Gill, Raul Malo, Emmylou Harris, Phil Vassar, and Jeff Bates at various shows and her impressive co-writer list includes respected songsmiths such as Byron Hill, Randy Scruggs, and Wynn Varble.
With her Texas roots deeply imbedded in her soul, DeeAnn‘s voice is the unexpected place where Jeannie C. Riley meets Janis Joplin. Her last album Based On A True Story received critical acclaim including a featured interview in Billboard Magazine and the winner of the prestigious Horizon Award from Robert K Oermann at Music Row Magazine.
Her newest release Feel is a Blue Eyed Soul, Authentic, Country/Rocking collection of music that was recorded at Audio Dallas in Dallas, Texas. The fabulous Anson Funderburgh produced and played on the album. The album was written/co-written in her Nashville, TN home. Again, no cookie cutter here. DeeAnn is a true original. This performance is genuine, sexy, vulnerable, and gutsy! A songwriter who really lets us in. A singer we can tell has lived each story.
DeeAnn stands fearless, the picture of self-possession even as she sings about family, God, guns, cigarettes, prisons, and righting wrongs. Equally present is a vulnerable child-like emotion in her ballads, lending them a confessional and reflective quality. Appropriately, both DeeAnn’s releases are self-penned, save for two songs.
Charting with a top 10 hit in Europe in 2009 with “Once You’ve Been To The Moon” (co-written and recorded by Byron Hill), DeeAnn has had top 20 hits in Europe with the debut single “I Still Believe” and is now releasing Feel in Summer 2015.
