Tommy Doggett

Educator + Musician, Des Moines, IA, USA

A staple of the Des Moines music scene across genres, Tommy Doggett has added his saxophone to folk, funk, jazz, + rock. With his new project, Lines + Lineage, Tommy steps up front as a bandleader + composer.  Blending jazz chops with rock energy, Tommy has created instrumental music to describe the influence his family had on him as a child.  

 

Recorded live at Golden Bear Studios in Des Moines, Iowa, Lines + Lineage features Seth Hedquist on guitar, Scot Sutherland on bass, + Russ Tomlinson on drums.  

"Tommy Doggett recently released his family-inspired instrumental album Lines + Lineage which reveals not only the depth of his artistry, but also his deep appreciation for where he comes from. When you hear his songs, it’s like meeting his family, and I think that’s perfect for a community event like this one, where our friends and family get to meet."  Iowa Public Radio
