Breanne Primeau - Natural Woman

New Video! I'm playing "Natural Woman" with the extremely talented Breanne Primeau. Keep an ear out for her/our new album early next year!

Update: May 2012

I've been a little quiet, but still busy as ever.

I've finally finished my song Unfair, which has taken three years to record and get it to a place where I'm happy to put it out. I've got two versions done by my two good friends Ernest "Efficial" Dudley and Christine Occhino, both of whom you should check out. They're fantastic writers and performers and I thank them for all they've done for and with Max and I.

I've also got a new version of Worth It All out featuring the amazing Rebecca Zama. She's got such a big voice and incredible soul for a 12 year old!

In other news, I've have moved my recording studio Side Dorr Studios to a new location at the Cambridge Performing Arts Center. Here, I actually have room to create music. No more 5' ceilings, no more laundry room, no more heating system humming through the winter. Plus I have use of the Xibus Performance Hall, a 72-seat venue attached to the studio, to record bands and more in a big open space. I will have to start charging for my services, though. So, I will have a modest $25/hr rate for my services, whether it be mixing, mastering, recording or composing.

I'm still performing around town as well. I'm still playing with Maura Mendoza, helping her promote her debut album which came out last October. I am also playing organ for the Gospel Corinthians, who will be releasing their first album next month.

I'm still working with Breanne Primeau on her EP; we're taking it slow. I hope to be gigging with her by the end of the year.

Thank you all for your support, and I hope to see you soon at a show, or in the studio, or at Stop&Shop, or at the Arboretum, or Seaworld, or...

I'd like to post some recent recommendations of my work:

“Dominic is very possible the most astonishing Musician I have ever had the pleasure to work with. A true 'Renaissance man', he is the drummer/pianist/vocalist in my current band 'Orchestra Ozone'. He is an astute businessman with a very keen sense for PR, esp. the visuals of promotional material. Because I work, perform & collaborate on writing tunes with him, I have watched him under pressure. This is a man who is mastered in restraint, & NEVER looses his cool. Dominic is good natured, very hard working, thorough in everything he does. He composes, arranges, & knows how to run a business. This is a man who is going to make his mark on the music world. Count on it!” 
     -Alida Rohr

"Dominic is very competent but unassuming musician who knows very well how to navigate the whole music industry system. Dominic is a very savvy businessman and manager who knows how to operate and manage a business. I trust him and highly recommend for any business endeavor."
     -Nunotte Zama

“Dominic is a creative and enterprising young man. He works with passion to achieve his goals and has a very strong "can do" attitude. He is a pleasure to work with and was a major asset on every team we were on. I cannot recommend him highly enough.”
     -Max Macrides

“Dominic French is a gifted musician, writer and arranger. He not only generates an endless flow of creative ideas but can personally execute them or direct other musicians to execute them. He was a pleasure to work with in preproduction and in the studio. I appreciate his commitment to the job at hand and I hope we get the opportunity to work together in the future.”
