There is no power as profound as that of music. If used right, it does not only entertain but can positively impact the lives of those who listen to it as well. 
Its uniqueness and importance has definitely not been lost on singer/songwriter Dom Wier.

"I think if the music helps people get through tough times or makes their day brighter, that's notable and impactful. I know songs and music have saved me many times over the years. That's why art is important", he said.

Career-wise, Dom has steadily been making his presence felt, extensively touring and averaging 100-150 shows per year.
"There have been plenty of full band tours in old beat up vans and many stripped down acoustic shows all over the United States. From the dark corners of smoky backwoods bars to wineries, theaters and festival stages, the journey of this particular working musician has brought lots of miles traveled down long highways at 2am, meeting all kinds of folks from different backgrounds and opening shows for acts like Asleep At The Wheel, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Shooter Jennings, Blackberry Smoke, Candlebox, Foghat, members of Lynyrd Skynyrd and Toto among other", reads part of his bio.

“I've met and worked with a lot of talented people, played a lot of shows and seen a ton of places that I may have never seen otherwise if it wasn't for music. I've been in Nashville for 14 years. I've learned about songwriting and about what not to do.  Finally putting out my debut full length record "Wayward Skies" is a big highlight for sure. I've gotten to play some great festivals/shows and open for some cool artists like Asleep At The Wheel and Blackberry Smoke among others", adds the musician himself.

In the follow up to his debut full length album ‘Wayward Skies' released earlier in the year, which was a blend of rock, country and blues textures and which went a long way in putting his mid-western country rock sound on show, the musician has a few new projects in the pipeline.
"I've got a few singles and a couple collaborations that will be released over the next few months. My next release is a song I did on the ukulele called 'Sweet Little Baby'. I'm also doing a song with my bud Matt Nicholls called 'Trying to Stay Out Of Trouble', and a song with Matthew & The Few called ‘Thousand Year’ and a few others", said Wier.

The Illinois native moved to Nashville to pursue songwriting and immerse himself in music, and began performing as a solo artist, meshing his rock, folk and Texas country influences with those of country giants like Waylon, Willie and Johnny Cash.

"Sometimes it's hard to put a finger on what it is exactly, but I think it's the dreamer mentality in my heart, soul and mind. It's the passion for it.  It's perseverance and the hope that good things will come your way if you truly work hard and believe in what you're doing, even when it seems futile.
"I just want to make the best music that I possibly can and connect with people. I could say things like, I want to reach larger audiences and play the biggest shows with my heroes and my peers that I respect. I'd like to sustain a long successful career and I'd like to help people, be charitable and be happy”, said Dom.
