Domino is a country/ rock group from Stettler, Alberta. The band consists of Kent Nixon (Lead Vocals, Guitar, Harmony), Luanne Carl (Lead Vocals, Bass, Harmony), Scott Mcknight (Lead Vocals, Drums, Harmony) and Russ Carl (Lead Vocals, Guitar, Mandolin, Harmony).
The band has been performing together for ten years, giving the fans what they want on stages all around Alberta. One thing that I love about this band is that all four members sing lead, but are each able to harmonize flawlessly.
Domino released their album, “Scrapbook” on September 1st and so far the reaction from the fans has been amazing. I just sat here and listened to the album and I am very happy to have been given the chance to review it.
The opening track is entitled “2:15” and it starts the album off on a strong note. I can see why they chose this song as a single. I would say if you’re not a huge country fan, you could still appreciate and enjoy this song. It’s fun and really showcases Luanne’s voice.
The other song I want to talk about is the ninth song, “All We Need Tonight”. It’s a slower song, and the vocals just give me chills. The song brings me back to sitting in my mother’s kitchen listening to her country music. I’m not about to compare the sound to other country artists, just want to make it clear that Domino knows how to accomplish the new style of country rock, but they also know how to write and perform a beautiful pure country song.
I’d like to say congratulations to the band for putting together a perfect album that showcases all the sides of the band, and I can’t wait to hear more. It’s a welcomed change to hear more than one lead vocalist.
