Tasmanian singer-songwriter Tom Dockray has hit on a formula of songwriting that combines humour with a darker and more delicate turn of phrase to please even the most ardent fans of Leonard Cohen, Nick Cave and Tom Waits. Having kicked big goals with his relentless touring schedule across his Australia, Tom looks forward to an exciting 2017 recording the follow up to his stunning 2015 debut record 'One Finger Salute' and a relocation to Europe. 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 in September 2016.
