flower-3Dominique Pruitt is an adorable, ’50s-style sensation with a sweet disposition and a great EP that will have you toe-tapping in no time. With bright crimson lips and hair to match, she is taking over North America and playing in all the hottest gay bars across New York. The first thing you notice about her music is its out-of-this-world combination of a swinging old-time liveliness and a modern twist.

Pruitt just finished a tour of New York’s gay scene and even made a video for Youtube’s pride campaign, where she spoke about her father and his advocacy for LGBT rights. He then performed a song the two of them had written together on the subject of marriage equality.

“I co-wrote a lot of the songs on the EP with my dad. Some of the songs are [even] songs he had written thirty years ago. I love to perform ‘You Don’t Have A Heart’; he wrote it about an old friend who was cheated on. My parents are so supportive. [They] would support me in anything but [they never] sugar coated it. No pixie dust and rainbows; I knew about the darker side [of fame!]”

My favorite song of hers is “He’s Got It Bad,” a track about her trip to see a gypsy palm reader who tells her about future love.

“It is not totally a true story. I wish someone would tell me that! I really enjoy performing that one!”

If you love this precious gem and her catchy songs then you can hear her full EP here, and follow her, below.
