Raised in Chelsea, Dom McAllister is a 22 year old singer/songwriter simply turning a hobby into an ambition. Growing up his father introduced him to soul music around the house at a very young age which led to him being inspired by artists like Sam Cooke, Aretha Franklin and Bob Marley. When asked to name his all time favourite album he proudly claims "The Score by The Fugees". At the age of sixteen, McAllister took it upon himself to learn how to play guitar and piano. The strengthening in his instrumental ability allowed him to develop both his singing, songwriting and performances. A year later, he decided to join a band in which he was an active member in until nineteen. Dom’s talents were discovered by the label's co-founder Bless Beats after he heard him singing in the corridors of The Roundhouse, Camden where he had been recording his demos. When discussing the sound of his upcoming music, Dom says he is "currently inspired to build a soundscape of soulful pop with electronic and 90s Hip hop elements”. He also mentions Bob Marley, The Fugees, Disclosure, Destiny’s Child and Bob Dylan as specific inspirations for his upcoming project. As mentioned, with Sam Cooke being one of musical inspirations, Dom aims to also " have the same goal to create songs with a modern message and simply tell a story". Dom is currently signed to Raggamuffin Music as his first publishing deal as well as being mentored by co-founders Bless Beats and Jin Jin.
