Dragoman is the Bristol-based multi-instrumentalist and songwriter, Tom Hackwell.  

Like the Dragoman before him, and the one before that, this Dragoman is an explorer - an experimenter, a tamperer and a tinkerer. 

At a time when the mainstream is dominated by soft, unrelentingly cautious music, Dragoman aims to provide a beacon for those craving something more.

Debut LP, Underbelly was written over a period of two years and released in early 2017 via Deaf Endling Records. A follow-up is planned for 2018.


 "...a twisted carnival of sound."

- Drowned in Sound

"...lavish melodies on top of bold and unfamiliar textures."

- For Folk's Sake

“It is the lunacy of Tom Waits blended with the dark majesty of Leonard Cohen and it is sublime.”
