“Astounding presence, lyrical flair, and comedic timing”

Tasmanian singer-songwriter Tom Dockray sings with his powerful voice and plays guitar like a virtuoso to craft a live show brimming with the wit and stories of a life lived and observed hard. Concert-goers hush during the intimate moments and raise their feet to stomp and holler when his his blue streak hits its rhythm.
The buzz surrounding Dockray accelerated in 2016 with triumphant performances at Festivals including Tamworth Country Music Festival (NSW), Festival of Voices (TAS), White Night (VIC) and Copenhagen Songwriters Festival (Denmark); meanwhile his song Monopoly Money was nominated for best song at the inaugural Australian Roots Music Awards held in September 2016.
2018 heralds an exciting new chapter in the Tom Dockray narrative as he continues to be inspired by his new base in Copenhagen, Denmark.
