Dominic Ray Martin (a.k.a "Dom") was born in North Dakota but spent most of his life in Anderson, Indiana; up until the 9th grade, that is, when he moved to Indonesia with his parents to do missionary work. He came back to the States to attend college at Anderson University. His experiences in Indonesia have influenced his life in every aspect, including his lyrics. Dom explains his early experiences with music: "I have been writing acapella since the 8th grade but was not able to do any recording until I returned and joined Haitian Nation Recordz. I am loving the opportunity and looking forward to improving." Dom's flow is amazing and he works hard to hone his skills as a hip hop artist.
