An accomplished musician, songwriter, and recording artist, Kier has been on a twenty five year journey that has taken him to every corner of the U.S. and half way around the world performing... but as comedian. He'll share his story of turning struggle into strength on his way to the life's biggest lesson: Finding a way to reconcile aspects of one's life that are at odds. For him it was a career path that had always tugged him in different directions - Music and Comedy. Turns out the sum IS greater than the parts.

Kier may be the only guy in Nashville to have played a writer's night at the famed Bluebird Cafe, headlined at Zanies Comedy Club and had a concert at Vanderbilt University, all in the same year.

Taking his unique blend of music, humor, and impressions all over the world, Kier has been up and down the backstage steps several thousand times and definitely has a story to tell. In his motivational presentation Kier shares his experiences and helps his audiences to recognize their talents and use them for the greater good!
