064 – Progressions: Dominique Leone

October 15, 2012 | By | Add a Comment

Dominique Leone wears many hats, has only a few faces, and has composed hundreds of songs.  He is a classically trained musician from Texas who now operates out of San Francisco. He’s a songwriter and producer, with more than a slight command of pop history and theory, and has used these skills as a music reviewer for several publications. Advancing from critic to composer, his music could be considered ”pop” with the occasional dash of “prog”, “conceptual art” or really good tv theme song. He´s one of a growing number of college-educated musical auteurs with more than a slight command of pop history and theory chops, and writing songs for joyous, infatuated (or over saturated) people.  Perhaps some of them just like good melodies with cool, strange chord progressions.  The critics (SPIN, Village Voice, Pitchfork, XLR8R) seemed to.
