Domino Kirke

Domino Kirke (born in London, c. 1983) is an English-American singer. She is of English and Iraqi-Jewish heritage. She was named after Domino Harvey, whom her mother had met when Harvey was a young girl.

Domino was trained musically by her father Simon Kirke, the drummer for Free and Bad Company. From the age of nine, she sang in choirs, operas and plays before moving to New York City, where she attended Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School to study classical voice and piano.

Her mother, Lorraine, runs the Geminola boutique in SoHo, and her sisters, Lola Kirke and Jemima Kirke are actresses.

After being spotted at a Joe's Pub performance at age 17 by producer Andre Levins, Kirke was signed to his label, Fun Machine.

Shortly thereafter, Domino joined forces with Jordan Galland, and formed DOMINO. The band recorded an EP with Mark Ronson and toured for three years with the likes of Gang of Four and Lily Allen. The band was also featured in Lena Dunham's indie movie, Tiny Furniture. A music video for their song "Green Umbrella", directed by Galland, won Best Musical Form at the 2006 Da Vinci Film and Video Festival

"The Guard" was produced by Domino, Timo Ellis, and Jorge Elbrecht and was recorded in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

In 2014, Kirke began a relationship with actor and musician Penn Badgley. They married in a New York courthouse on February 27, 2017.
