Biography

A Gypsy-like early upbringing helped evolve multi-talented Free Dominguez, a Texas native, into the artist she is today. The singer with the Cuban / Spanish heritage has been described as both a “storyteller” and a “true, versatile, honest” artist.

The singer, formally trained by vocal coach Roger Love (The Beach Boys, Earth Wind & Fire, Matchbox 20), began playing piano at an early age, writing her first song at the age of six. Her early musical tastes varied greatly and include: Annie Lennox, Stevie Nicks, Prince, Ozzy Osbourne and Black Sabbath, Public Enemy and DePeche Mode.

At 20 years old, Dominguez moved to Los Angeles. After two years and some encouragement from a neighbor, an artist with whom she had shared some poetry, she decided to pursue music. Shortly after, she met musician/engineer Bruce Somers. With Somers she wrote songs for Grammy Award winning film composer/musician Mark Isham (Blade, A River Runs Through It, Crash). The pair formed the rock group Kidneythieves. Kidneythieves gained loyal fans due greatly to the hypnotic, sultry, and emotional vocals which exude from the petite Dominguez on tracks such as “Black Bullet,” “Arsenal” and “Serene Dream” from the album Zerospace (2002). The group worked with producer/mixer/engineer Sean Beavan (NIN, Marylin Manson, No Doubt). Two full lengths and an EP later (Trickster - 1998, Phi in the Sky - 2001, and Zerospace - 2002) the Kidneythieves began their own projects in 2003 with Somers, Schleyer, and Sellers forming the group Shocknina allowing Dominguez time to work on her first independent effort entitled, Freedoming.

    This girl has one of my favourite voices ever. Love her! I'd probably say I prefer her earlier solo work & her stuff with Kidneythieves to her new her newest album (Volcano & The Sea) but really it's all good! I like that's not afraid to explore all directions. Can't wait to hear what this hip hop project she is currently working on sounds like.

    Freedoming is one of those albums that is simple and effective. I like it...like it alot. It's different from kidneythieves, which is what makes it special.

    Her album is so hard to find, I agree. I can only listen to her on her MySpace site.

    I love Free. Her solo work differs greatly from her work with Kidneythieves, but its the kind of folky, honest guitar work that I love. Still, looking forward to the next KT release
