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.
