With inimitable charisma, wit, and built upon an effortless mastery of the National steel guitar, Tom Dockray’s songs bark and grumble at the indignities of everyday life amid an intoxicating blend of ragtime, piedmont and old-time blues. The buzz surrounding Dockray has 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.
