Singer Domino Kirke dives back into music after doula career

Written by  NICOLE BITETTE

Domino Kirke may not have caught the acting bug like her sisters, but she did inherit their father's musical gene.

The 34-year-old singer-turned-doula — who recently married "Gossip Girl" star Penn Badgley — is returning to her musical beginnings after a multiple-year hiatus dedicated to raising her son Cassius, 8.

Kirke's first-ever full length album "Beyond Waves" debuted on Aug. 25, featuring 11 raw — and extremely personal — mellow folk-pop tracks, like "Half Blood" and "Friend of the Family."

She told the Daily News that the making of the album was a bit selfish as she tackled feelings and ideas that have been swirling inside of her for ages.

"It's a really quiet record, it's a really gentle, sort of delicate record, you know, you really do have to listen to it to let it take hold of you because of the nature of the lyrics," Kirke explained. "I like that about it because it really forces the person to listen, it's not something you could just throw on — I mean you can, and you'll probably feel sleepy and lulled to some sort of state."

The elder sister of actresses Jemima, 32, of "Girls" and Lola, 26, of "Mistress America" and "Gone Girl," said acting was never in the cards for her.
