Tim Arnold's 10th studio album 'Oaky Dokey' features 13 timeless pop-rock classic songs, created by one of the UK's finest and modest songwriters of modern times. It also happenes to be the most upbeat and positively jovial albums the artist has created in his career.

The light hearted title track features the instantly recognizable tones of actor Richard Briers (best known for his role in British sitcom 'The Good Life'), while the chirpy 'You're The One That's Beautiful' also features the kids of The Soho Parish School singing club. An ode to pulling back and enjoying life out of the fast-lane of modern life.

Elsewhere 'Say Your Love' is a thundering classic rock 'n' roll boogie song, 'To Be Or Not To Be' could have easily been crooned by Peggy Lee, while 'The Ballad of Echo' is a delightful and playful duet inspired by the Greek mythological love story of Echo and Narcissus - welcoming a special guest appearance from British actress Lisa Dillon. The album includes a plethora of London's finest musicians.

'Oaky Dokey' is designed to spark a truly emotive reaction for its listeners, taking you to a time and place where pop music is once again about creating wonderful songs that transcend genres, trends and ages. One listen and it's hard not to agree.
