Domenica's 1st CD "The Luxury", was recorded at Matt Sorum's (Guns n' Roses/Velvet Revolver) private Hollywood, CA studio. Marcos Curiel (P.O.D.) had crossed paths with singer/songwriter/guitarist Bekki Domenica, and co-wrotewrote/co-produced 3 songs.
On 09/09/09, "The Luxury" was released in Japan. A fervent public reception followed. Features in glossy hard rock magazines, video spins, and an undeniable buzz, brought Domenica the first of their several global successes to date. "The Luxury" was ranked HMV Japan's No.1 album pick on 2 separate occasions. The song "What Goes Around", (one of the 3 co-written by Bekki and Marcos) was chosen by Burrn! Magazine's editor in chief as one of the top 10 hard rock/metal songs of 2009 (Japan's 'Rolling Stone' equivalent). September tour dates are in the works
Following their Canadian release (09/15/09), Domenica’s single ‘Above Me’ achieved heavy radio and video rotation in Canada on both active rock and alternative rock radio formats. A heavy tour schedule was locked in, and the band promoted this release coast to coast for several months. This hard work secured them for the 'Rock On The Range' stadium festival, featuring Stone Temple Pilots, Buckcherry, Three Days Grace, Godsmack and more.
More recently, "The Luxury" has been released in Australia (04/09/10), where the video has already been piked up in to rotation on RAGE. On a pre-release trip, singer/songwriter/guitarist Bekki Friesen was invited to the country's largest rock station (Triple M, Sydney) for a live acoustic performance and interview. Domenica is slated to play with some of Australia's hottest up and coming rock artists and the Rock N' Roll Revolution Festival Tour this summer.
The Germany/Austria/Switzerland release is slated for 4/23/10, but Domenica's sigle 'Above Me' has already stormed onto the Metal/Rock 30 charts. Debuting at No.27, the song is currently sitting at No.18 in only it's second week of promotion. May and September tour dates are in the works.
