With a tip of the hat to heartland rock heroes, like Petty, Seger and Mellencamp, Dom Wier weaves a thread of roots country rock songwriting with a classic middle American touch. Originally from Southern Illinois near the banks of the Mississippi River, he cut his teeth playing guitar and singing in different bands in the St. Louis area. After a move to Nashville to pursue songwriting and immerse himself in music, he began performing as a solo artist, meshing his rock and folk influences (Carole King, Jim Croce, Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Ray Charles) with those of country giants like Waylon, Willie and Johnny Cash.
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. 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.
After a solo hiatus and a stint in the Nashville based Americana group The Good Routes, Dom joined up with producer/friend Matthew Miller. They’ve recorded several new songs for an upcoming solo EP titled “New Waters” due out January 19th, 2018. These songs blend rock, country and blues textures with an honest, slightly roadworn vocal delivery. Dom Wier continues to roll down highways relying on perseverance and heart, writing songs and taking the hard won little victories as they come. The future is wide open. Stay tuned.
