A rare combination of talent, entrepre-neurialism, creativity and whimsical fierceness, DOMANIQUE GRANT is an artist of many things; but the Toronto born, Sia meets Sade sounding, trilingual versed powerhouse—is anything but
Upon being introduced to DOMANIQUE GRANT on festival bills, you might ask how an independent artist only gearing up to release her debut single, has sold out TEDx Talks; appeared in the Toronto Pan American Games Closing Ceremony– Canada’s largest international sporting games—to over 1 million people; and been invited to perform on stages in cities from Buenos Aires to Uganda. DOMANIQUE is an artist of a different breed. Grant got into music only after travelling the world as a motivational speaker living in between three continents before the age of 21, then arriving back in Toronto, struggling to understand the meaning of home.
After turning to theatre, storytelling and performance art to bring together her childhood experiences, Grant’s stories would be turned into lyrics for Dora Nominated Canadian shows, that she’d be ask to perform in. This would lead to being picked up by entertainment scouts from the Toronto Raptors, who she would perform for alongside being introduced to Grammy + Juno nominated producers Kuya (Alessia Cara, Little Mix, Ginuwine).
Domanique is gearing up to release her debut EP Album PLAYHOUSE written by Grant and co-produced by Grant and the grammy nominated trio. A fiery, fun personality, Domanique Grant’s songs are infused with pop, soul and inter- national flavours and her live show is a fierce, magical, modern experience that incorporates performance art and grand harps. Grant’s uncommon obsession for live harps, laced together with her intricate songwriting abilities, milky vocal tone and love for catchy soul-world-pop inspired beats, make audiences just connect and let go. Unreleased music from Grant’s debut EP has been voted into the Top 8 for CBC’s Search for Toronto’s next big anthem.
Buzz about Grant’s EP led to it being commissioned inside of The Toronto 2015 Pan American Games Olympic Athletes’ Village, where she performed (in English, French and Spanish), becoming 1 of 8 Canadian Ambassadors for Canada.
