Bio


Domenic is an acclaimed multi-instrumentalist, vocalist and composer/producer who has travelled the world sharing his music as a solo artist and as co-founder/lead vocalist of the innovative acoustic roots band Praying for the Rain. Musician magazine calls him, "a deeply soulful and compelling musician and storyteller who brings a rich, uncluttered quality to his music that fills his songs with evocative imagery and lyrical narrative".
He has toured throughout Europe, Canada, Africa, Japan and the Middle East and has performed at festivals such as Glastonbury, Womad and Stainsby and at London's Union Chapel and South Bank..
Internationally recognized,his compelling style combines contemporary acoustic music with an eclectic mix of world sounds and rhythms, together with beautifully crafted harmonies and emotive lead vocals. The music brings to mind a modern blend of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, Fleet foxes and the Dave Matthews Band, creating a truly uplifting and high energy experience.

"The latest album is a beautiful mix of soothing vocals, meaningful lyrics and peaceful guitar work. DeCicco's voice is exceptional ...Over all, Seeds of Evergreen is a great listen, and DeCicco's reputation will have been done no harm by this marvellous release". Maverick Magazine.

"packed full of well-crafted songs and beautifully played throughout, so if the idea of an easygoing, rootsy album perfect for a Sunday morning appeals, you won't do much better than Seeds of Evergreen". Rock n Reel

"He has a chameleon voice, sometimes rough and husky, sometimes sweet and clear. There are fleeting glimpses of Dylan and Paul Simon in his delivery; his voice is strong and true, capable of passion and drama as well as gentleness ." Folking.com

Seeds of Evergreen - the new album
With Seeds of Evergreen, Domenic releases his 3rd solo album. The themes are touching in their purity and convey a sense of honesty and vulnerability that draws the listener in from the start. Singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Domenic defies any easy label. The collection of songs stir in their own sensibilities and haunting melodies, crossing between contemporary acoustic folk, touches of roots and world music, and even his flavour of country and jazz. His wealth of musical styles and smooth and expressive voice are all skilfully blended into a seamless flow of music from the heart that absorbs the listener entirely into the narratives of each piece. He is joined by a list of celebrated musicians across 15 Tracks in total, including two beautiful bonus instrumentals at the end of album.
Originally from Canada of Italian heritage, after many years living in London, now makes his home in Somerset, UK.
