Sounds on the Terrace
– Dominic Breen

FREE, drop-in
MCA Sculpture Terrace, Level 4

Dominic Breen is a singer-songwriter, poet and artist whose songs masterfully weave across themes of love, mentality and identity with both an observational and introspective lyricism. The Sydney based 23 year old first started writing songs during his early teens after he experienced a number of serious concussions and ultimately severe head trauma. In this social disconnection, strangely his writing flourished, moving into a poetic, storytelling lyricism likened to bush poets like Henry Lawson.

Since the indefinite separation of Breen’s first project 'The Moonlight Cowboys’, a psychedelic blend of rock, blues and jazz, Dominic Breen has started to draw a new following as he begins touring with his new 5 piece live act, The Dopamine. With a debut single on the way, Dominic Breen is a budding artist to keep your eyes and ears on.
