WHO IS LISTENING TO ANTHONY DAVID???
MICHELLE OBAMA IS AN ANTHONY DAVID FAN…Mrs Obama, wife of President elect Barack Obama, has been talking about the music she listens to on her iPod, and her current favourite is Dome singer-songwriter Anthony David.
Asked about her iPod contents by US magazine Marie Claire, Mrs Obama revealed: “If I hear something I like somewhere, I’ll add it. I just heard this CD by Anthony David, who’s an R&B guy – I put him on there. That’s brand new, so I’m kind of enjoying that a lot now.”.
Atlanta-based Anthony, who served as a young recruit in the US army at the time of the first Gulf war, got his musical break when he began writing songs with newcomer India Arie ahead of her debut album release. This year he and India enjoyed a duet hit in the US with ‘Words’, from his album ‘The Red Clay Chronicles’.
Buy a copy of ‘The Red Clay Chronicles’ here and share Mrs Obama’s excitement.

DOME DISTRIBUTION IN THE UK
You may have read in the national press that a leading music distribution company Pinnacle went into administration last week. Pinnacle was the distributor for more than 300 UK independent labels, including Dome.
As a result it’s very likely that in the coming weeks copies of Dome CDs will be difficult to buy from some retailers, including HMV and Amazon. During this time all Dome releases are available as normal on CD direct from us at www.domerecords.co.uk or as downloads from iTunes www.itunes.co.uk and other digital stores.
We intend to have a new distributor in place by the New Year, at which time all retailers will once again be able to order and supply our releases.
