Christine Dominguez is an American singer, songwriter and producer from Newburgh, New York; a city rich with the urban influences found in her music.
Always captivated by lyrics and melodies, Christine began writing and singing music at just three years old. In second grade, she picked up her first instrument, the violin, and by age fourteen, she was playing guitar, drums, bass, piano and trumpet with ease. It was clear at this young age that music would become more than just a hobby for her.
After doubling up on her workload, Christine graduated high school a year early to jump start her music career. She earned a bachelor’s degree in music production & recording from Bard College, and produced several independently released albums before graduating.
However, one of her most notable accomplishments was co-writing the award winning, 5x platinum hit song, “Airplanes” and the Grammy- nominated follow up, “Airplanes Pt. II” recorded by B.o.B, Hayley Williams and Eminem. Christine was the vocalist on the original track that got the song picked up by Atlantic Records.
Building off of her success with songwriting, Christine broke into the world of music for film by co-writing and performing the theme song for the 7-time award winning film, “Growing Up Fat & Albanian” alongside film & TV composer, Aldo Shllaku (Spider-Man 2 & 3, My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2), and world-renowned hip hop artist, Martin Malota from Detroit. It went on to win 'Best Original Song' at the 2017 Manhattan Film Festival.
Unlike many other pop artists today, Christine has set herself apart with her unique voice and musical writing style. Her voice can best be described as soulful, sultry and dynamic. For her style, Christine primarily focuses on pop music influenced by R&B, hip-hop and rock. She cites her musical influences as pop legends Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson, and Justin Timberlake, among others.
Christine enjoys the creative freedom of being an independent artist. To best serve this ambition, Christine launched her own record label, Pleiadian Playground, and continues to collaborate with world-renowned producers and artists, while maintaining creative control of her own music.
“I am adamant about maintaining my creative freedom and the ability to be myself.”
Christine is working on several projects with talented artists and producers from around the world, all to be released soon. Christine also has a new solo album in the works. She has teamed up with Grammy- nominated mastering engineer, Emily Lazar (Sia, Dave Grohl, Mary Lambert) at The Lodge in New York City to master the album.
