Art & Life with Dominic Rios

Today we’d like to introduce you to Dominic Rios.

Dominic, please kick things off for us by telling us about yourself and your journey so far.
I started on piano at age six. My mother was a piano teacher. At age ten, I decided to choose drums as my life’s work. I wouldn’t say I have much talent but I live my life by the motto; 1% talent 99% sweat. I was progressing nicely, playing in various bar bands and studying at music school. Well, unfortunately, I was seriously injured in a car crash when I was 20 yrs. old. My right forearm was almost completely severed. Doctors said I would never play again. Less than two years later, I landed my first full time touring professional gig. nutshell.

Can you give our readers some background on your art?
I’m a singer-songwriter, drummer and guitarist. My goal is to make people have a good time and forget about their personal problems for a while. I write bar music for bar people.

In your view, what is the biggest issue artists have to deal with?
Having to do almost everything by yourself.

What’s the best way for someone to check out your work and provide support?
I host a bi-monthly singer-songwriter show at Lotus Lounge in Hollywood.
