Dominique Pruitt has released her latest project! The 5 song EP, “Praying For Rain” can be found here. Growing up, Pruitt was raised by music. Her parents met when they both played for singer Engelbart Humperdinck. Her childhood was surrounded by music with musical birthday parties. Pruitt Always loved writing and performing but it was not until her 20s that she started writing songs. Growing up, she worshiped pop divas but cites her inspirations from Patsy Cline, Aretha Franklin, and Bonnie Raitt. Pruitt has always loved a wide range of genres. She grew up on 90s country with artists like Vince Gill, Alan Jackson, and Clint Black.
The “High in The Valley” singer describes this EP as “country love with a cinematic approach”. Pruitt went into the writing process as upbeat and, but it turned into somber. Pruitt said the writing process is natural if you “let it breathe it becomes its own”. The title track “High in the Valley” was written by Pruitt at 19 years old. At the time she wanted to make music and did not know what direction to go in, but the song turned out to be exactly what she had in mind.
Pruitt loves performing anywhere with great sound including at NPR’s Mountain Stage in Charleston, West Virginia. Pruitt has worked with Dave Darling (Glen Campbell and Jack Johnson) and Joseph Holiday. Pruitt wants people to know that you should “be independent and out of your comfort zone. Don’t be afraid to say no if you do not like it [and] support the artists you love!"
