Pop-Rock Act

Dominic and the Lucid


bmp-port-09-pop

Flower children

Lead singer and songwriter Dominic Lavoie's sweetly soaring — sometimes subtle — voice perfectly suits his pop-rock tunes, but his true skill might be for surrounding himself with talented, energetic folks — like the 18-member chorus or 15 local musical luminaries he assembled to sing on various tracks of the band's 2008 sophomore release, Season of the Sun, perhaps? Lavoie and his bandmates "manage to make peace, love, and harmony seem cool without devolving into sentimentality and cheese," Portland Phoenix scribe Sam Pfeifle said in his review of the new album last year — a sonic aesthetic that sounds perfect for these sunny summer days. |
