With charismatic wit and a keen ear for the truth, and built upon his effortless fingerpicking mastery of the National guitar, Tom Dockray’s songs simultaneously snarl and marvel at the indignities of everyday life amid an intoxicating blend of ragtime, piedmont and old-time blues. “Astounding presence, lyrical flair, and comedic timing... a personal highlight (of the Tamworth Country Music Festival, 2016)” – Gareth Hipwell, 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, romantic flames and just about anything else laissez-faire enough to walk within his sights.
