Originally from the banks of the Mississippi River, Dom Wier is a roots country rock songwriter based in Nashville, TN. After cutting his teeth playing guitar and/or singing in different bands in the St. Louis, MO scene, Dom moved to Nashville to immerse himself in music and songwriting. He soon started performing as a solo artist.
Two EPs “Jaded Dreamer” and “After The Flood” were produced and recorded with Grammy winning engineer Nick Autry (Buddy Guy, Chris Young) at Sound Stage Studios in Nashville, TN. The music can be described as American Roots Country Rock with a Southern Blues influence. A six song EP “Born On The Mississippi”, released July 30th, 2013, was recorded over a several month period at different studios near Nashville. It features a version of “Tear Me Back Apart”, a song written by the highly respected Americana tunesmith John Moreland.
Dom has toured throughout the United States with performances at festivals, fairs, clubs and plenty of smoky backwoods bars off the beaten path. The road of this particular songwriter has brought lots of miles driven down long dark highways, meeting all kinds of folks from different backgrounds and sharing show bills with acts like Asleep At The Wheel, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Shooter Jennings, Blackberry Smoke, Candlebox, Foghat, members of Lynyrd Skynyrd and Toto among others.
In 2015 Dom brought together fellow songwriters Vince Ostrander and Alan Crist to form The Good Routes. The Good Routes released a self titled EP and performed at festivals, colleges and clubs throughout the country. They opened for national acts and developed a driving roots rock sound with blended harmonies and standout songwriting. The Good Routes have since decided to go their separate ways but they continue to write songs together.
Now in 2017, Dom has a solo album in the works. He continues to roll down highways staying the course, writing songs and relying on perseverance and heart. Look for Dom Wier on the road.
