French-Canadian vocal prodigy Dominique Gorley has never been one to follow the crowd on her route to the top. The Ottawa-born starlet has stamped her mark on the RnB and soul scene through a determination to give people the courage to be themselves – and she's been using her powerful voice to deliver this message in all of Canada's biggest cities. Dominique met her first singing teacher at the age of 8, striking up an infallible bond over eight years that laid the perfect foundations for a career in music. In July 2016, she released her first original album entitled Deranged State of Mind. She released a second album in May 2017 entitled Impress and is currently working on a third project. With a fierce confidence to expose her stories, thoughts and experiences to the world, Dominique's talent and dedication are unmistakable. .Her journey towards connecting with audiences more deeply than ever before, and becoming a role model to women, is only just beginning.
