Lou Dominguez

With his third full-length cd, Lou Dominguez’s We The People paints a fascinating portrait of the complexities of our culture as Americans, from immigrants to the working class from religious hypocrites to Iraq War Veterans. Written in less than a year this CD examines characters and situations that are unique to our experience as Americans. We The People will take you on a trip through the USA from Capitol Hill, to Dallas Texas, to Northern New Jersey to the Bronx.

Lou’s perceptive eye shines a light on greed and the role money plays in our politics in songs like Citizen’s United and Tonight. In Hey Jesus and Happy American Solstice he points out the hypocrisy of religious leaders and questions the true ‘reason for the season’. Songs like Record Store and Home Is Where The Heart Is take us back to Lou’s youth and are autobiographical in nature.

He examines the complexities of how a tragedy like the shootings in Newtown, CT weigh on us as a nation, but he can still turn around and deliver a comical talking blues narrative about how though he had only 320 friends on Facebook he was absurdly banned from sending any more friend requests any, because he had made friend requests to folks he hadn’t met in real life!! Really?? YES REALLY!

This is a Folk Record in subject matter and texture. Produced by John Jennings, a multi-Grammy nominated producer, using acoustic instrumentation, We The People approaches other styles such as Jazz in Weight of the World and Latin in Home Is Where The Heart Was, but never losing the folk and acoustic flavor that defines this CD.

Lou has been playing in venues for the past 8 years as Brother Lou in Hollywood Florida and in the Northeast U.S. Lou and his wife Ellen currently spend time in Hollywood Florida and Vienna Virginia.
