Biography

Every now and then, the collaboration of heart and mind is a mystery. It is not sufficient to have a mind of one’s own. It is important to know how to use it the right way. Besides her senses, for the 25-year-old singer and artist Dominique Dillon de Byington, both coordinates are important indicators of her perception. In her head, everyday situations turn into stories. Sometimes they are triggered by single sounds, memories, fears, hopes, experiences, feelings or time.

Dillon was born in 1988 in Sao Paulo, Brazil, moved to Cologne at the age of five, where she grew up. At the age of 17 Dillon’s first self-composed pieces arose in front of her camera at the parents’ piano and without any calculus or system, began to spread via Youtube and MySpace. For Dillon intuition is as important as honesty when it comes to the channeling of emotions. At the age of 18 she moved to Berlin and one of her first songs, “The Rate Of Yesterday”, attracted the attention of the Berlin-based indie label Kitty-Yo which released her first digital single „C Unseen Sea“ in 2008. Followed by the three tracks EP „Ludwig“ on Combination Record, Dillon began exposing her draft of lo-fi pop combining hip-hop elements as well as minor electronic elements.

Not only DJ Koze certified Dillon a hopeful future, the band Tocotronic invited her as their support for their „Schall & Wahn” tour in 2010.

    Saw her last night. She was incredible! Also... If you don't like it move on, same with any artist. Just because it's not to your taste doesn't mean the music is bad. It simply means it's not compatible with you taste, So just move on. Your opinion is only appropriate to you.
