Although mostly playing as a solo acoustic artist in atmospheric venues, Dom is equally comfortable and proficient playing electric with his band Dom Martins Savages in larger venues and festivals.
With Covid -19 dominating 2020 and destroying the live music sector, one highlight was Dom and the band headlining the Official Rory Gallagher Online Festival to commemorate the 25th anniversary of his passing in June. The show, compered by Kid Jensen on the Official Rory Gallagher Facebook and YouTube pages has had nearly 91k views (Jan 2021).
This unassuming young musician is another fine product of the famous Belfast music factory responsible for Sir Van Morrison, Gary Moore, Paul Brady, Brian Kennedy, Foy Vance and many more.
