The painter sings! Frederico Domondon''s debut CD entitled "Frederico, the Artist", embodies a true artist''s passion. Born in Manila, Philippines, Frederico migrated to the U.S. at the age of 16 hoping he would be an artist and a singer someday. In college, he earned an accounting degree and worked as an accountant for ten years due to his mother''s advice. However, in 2000, he was able to quit his day job to pursue his art in Impressionist painting. Then, Frederico had sold over 2,000 of his own paintings from $250 to $20,000 in the last twelve years.
Fate smiled at him again when he rediscovered his passion for music when he was hired to perform at a French restaurant in Fremont, California two years ago. His talent for singing, piano playing and composing came back after more than twenty years of non performing since he has been concentrating on being an Artist. And now the dream of coming up with the CD came into fruition.
This CD contains three of his original piano solos composed and performed by Frederico along with ten soft-rock type songs, mostly from the seventies.
ORIGINAL PIANO COMPOSITIONS
The three romantic piano instrumentals entitled "The Artist''s Theme", "Butterfly" and "Adios" were all composed in 2004 and played by Frederico himself.
All 10 cover songs are his favorite ballads and they reflect his artistic life. Anyone who listens to them can feel his passion. His favorite song, "Vincent", was the song he had to record since Van Gogh was a big influence in his art. Another favorite cut from the album is the Latin classic "Besame Mucho".
His CD also contains a booklet containing 8 pages of photos of his paintings plus his writing (You can check the stunning CD graphics design on his website https://www.tradebit.com). He started writing poems and short stories since high school and was published last year.
Frederico is also available to perform at weddings and private parties mostly in the Bay Area (Northern California). He also is active in art and wine festivals and does a lot of private exhibition for his patrons.
