Arguably the greatest old-time blues picker ever to hail from tiny hamlet Lilydale (pop. 288) on the island of Tasmania, Tom Dockray is a unique wordsmith and author of song.
“Astounding presence, lyrical flair, and comedic timing… a personal highlight (of the Tamworth Country Music Festival, 2016)”
– Country Update Magazine
Now residing in Melbourne, Dockray has been cultivating a lively following with the combination of swagger, syrupy vocal and guitar picking that comes along once every so often.
Dockray recorded his debut LP, One Finger Salute in 2015. Imbued with his characteristic wit and knack for observation, and with tongue locked in cheek, One Finger Salute takes aim at crooked politicians, unwanted pregnancies, past flames and just about anything in his sights.
With One Finger Salute already receiving strong community radio airplay and reaching #5 on the AMRAP AIRIT regional chart in it’s first week, Melbourne’s ‘most exciting solo acoustic artist’ (Beat TV) is a unique and exciting newcomer for fans of great guitar picking and songwriting alike.
