Not happy with his path after getting his new album ready, Dalton scrapped many of the songs and rewote and re-recorded a new album. In 2017, Dalton released the mostly biopic album ‘Corners’ and his story became largely public through his songs. He stopped drinking and did his best to be true to himself, having it all unfold in the public eye. But, the change is very visible with his fans. He is more approachable than in the past. And, if you had to narrow it down to a couple of adjectives – “real” and “unfiltered” pretty much sums it up. Not affected by exterior opinions, Domino tends to skirt the politically correct speak to tell it like it is. And more often or not, it’s about as refreshing an approach to life that anyone has.
Domino was playing the week before the 4th of July and I was picking up my son the same day of the show. We rushed back and although my son didn’t know anything about Dalton Domino except the stories I had told him, he was thrilled to meet another Dalton. After Dalton’s set, I introduced them and Domino thought it was really cool that they shared a name. He genuinely was excited to take a photo. But, the demand for his time was great and we moved on. My son had a good time meeting the lead guitarist, Beau Bolfing, bass player, Michael Moad, entertaining keyboard player, Sam Jones, and since my son fancies himself as a drummer, enjoyed meeting Chase Francis.
