Army Veteran Dom Cours and his stunning three piece band, hail From the Texas hill country. Forged and hardened in and around the streets of the live music capital of the world. The band consists of Ray Holland on the drums, and Ken Claves on the Bass. Ray's been playing drums for over a decade, starting out playing honkey-tonks all around Texas with his father and eventually going on three national tours. Ken has been a bass player for both country and blues bands for the better part of the 2000's and has played just about every live venue in the 512 area code.
Dom’s sound is a edgy take on Texas roots music composed with his raspy mellow southern vocals, played with overdriven guitars and supported by a strong moving rhythm section. Taking inspiration from artists such as Mearl Haggard, Lightinin' Hopkins, Whisky Meyers, and Samantha Fish, Dom has crafted a genre bending sound he coins as "Honkey Tonk Blues Rock."
With eight years of Military service in the United States Army, three years of which were combat time in Iraq as an Infantryman, Dom is darkly aware of the mental health issues facing the Veteran community today. Because of this Dom is a stanch advocate for mental health. Struggling himself with PTSD, traumatic brain injury. Dom believes that music rescued him from the demons left behind by the trauma of war. Music has since, gifted him with a noble purpose in his life and he hopes to share that with the world.
