Biography

The great Dom Lyne, spinner of masterful words, sounds, and imagery. 

— Dennis Cooper

He is a no-holds-barred ruthless investigator of the darkness in the psyche balanced by a compassion so deep I have only experienced a few who have even come close to such sensitivity to the human condition.

Truck Darling

[The Heart of Darkness] was one of the most deeply powerful and intelligent novels I’ve read in my life.

— D.C. Wood

Born in Essex in 1983.

Always one to think outside of the box and speak his mind honestly, Dominic Lyne’s work takes a no-holds-barred approach. A visual, literary, mental kick in the teeth, a punch in society’s guts. Misanthropic, blunt, and opinionated; a style in keeping with Dominic’s ethos that if you don’t think for yourself, you are not thinking at all, only merely following like livestock. One person might not be able to change the world, but he’ll certainly try and leave a scar upon it. Punk ethics for a digital and wasted generation.

A graduate of The Academy of Contemporary Music, Guildford – where he studied for five years across multiple disciplines including performance (drums), music business and music production, and gained a first-class honours Degree in Contemporary Music Production – Dominic has worked in various artistic mediums. He also has an Undergraduate Diploma in English Literature and Creative Writing from the Open University.

His musical project The Red Devil Incident has provided music for usage on Nadeo‘s TrackMania Sunrise (PC, 2005), Trackmania Sunrise Extreme (PC, 2006), THQ‘s MotoGP06 (xBox, 2006), Modern Life?‘s independent UK film Ten Dead Men (Film, 2008), and Tailslating Production‘s interactive web series The Hayley Project (Episode 6, 2008).

It has also released four albums and three EPs which are available through the band’s official website: www.reddevilincident.com.

Suffering from psychosis since the age of four, as well as being on the Schizophrenia Spectrum, Dominic has been diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. All of these mental health issues bleed into his work through his creation of claustrophobic landscapes and offer the reader an insight into his world, the world he has created and mutated in his physical reality.

Dominic Lyne currently lives in the heart of London’s Camden Town.
