INTERVIEW: R&B Dance Artist Dominique De Beau
Hi Dominique, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
Yeah wonderful thanks for asking…How about you? All good in vents world? I appreciate you talking to me put a smile on my face when I was told about this…
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Another I”?
Well I was actually quite unprepared really I got a phone call and was told that Ayo Beatz was in town from Abu Dhabi and did I want to get together that night to work on a song – We had been trying to collaborate for a few months having met up back in April at one of my gigs so I just said yes sure and 4 Hours later we had Another I
Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
Not really, I have written a few songs in the past that never quite got finished they were all just ideas, for some reason I went back in to them all and picked little lyrics out of each one and put them all together
Any plans to release a video for the single?
Yes definitely Who wouldn’t want to do a video for this song it is so energetic
How was the recording and writing process?
It was beautiful and inspiring, me and Ayo work really well together in the studio we hit it off straight away, everything came so naturally, down to picking the rhythm we wanted and bringing elements of other types of musical sounds that we thought would compliment each other
After the success from your previous record, were you any nervous while working on this newest single?
Lol what success?? No it’s all stepping stones I just try and create music I think people will enjoy. Music is my life so I don’t get nervous really or think too much into anything…
How does Rihanna influence your writing?
She doesn’t I love Rihanna as an artist and I think she is incredible vocally and as a performer…
But I don’t really tend to compare myself to other artists…. As I am me…. I don’t really listen to the radio or even watch the music channels as I am very much an opera lover and classical…
And that is what I listen to in my spare time…..Only when I am in the studio and I work with my producer is when I create that way the sound is my own.
Does your new single mean we can expect a new album – how’s that coming along?
Yes I am working on my next EP I have written around 5 songs so far.. I hope to be ready to share it very soon.
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
Release Date End of Sept I hope – The EP title is going to be RED.
Any plans to hit the road?
I am working hard just trying to raise funds for a tour it’s expensive to go out on the road I would love to open for an artist I love like Drake or The Weeknd though…
What else is happening next in Dominique De Beau’s world?
What else is going on in Dom’s World well apart from recently moving home which was hectic nothing too exciting to write about really I am a mum so a lot of my time is spent bringing up my child ya know doing what mum’s do….I am also doing a little PR work which is fun trying out that really in between my studio and writing sessions but all in all just have a really average everyday life to live Life xxx
