“Truax is shaping up nicely as one of the great rock eccentrics.” -UNCUT

Merging a fevered imagination and solid songwriting with a mad scientist’s brain for weird gadgets, American singer Thomas Truax is a true one-off. He is known for an array of unique self-made instruments including a motorized drum machine made of bike wheels, spoons and other found items called ‘Mother Superior’ and a souped up Gramophone called ‘The Hornicator’

But don’t let the novelty fool you. He is also a talented guitar player, storyteller, and performer who crafts rich, poetically evocative songs about insects, trees, technology, love, and a lifelong fascination with the Moon. His music evades easy pigeonholing as his songs flit between art rock, post-punk, and a distinctive brand of surreal Americana.

A new full-length, ‘Dream Catching Songs’, featuring the renowned drummer Budgie (Siouxsie & the Banshees, the Slits, The Creatures) playing along with Mother Superior, has been garnering rave reviews with its poignant, sometimes tender, often raucous songs.

Though Thomas usually performs solo, other notable past supporters and collaborators have included Jarvis Cocker, Duke Special, James Smith of Yard Act, Richard Hawley, Bob Log III,  the Dresden Dolls and the late author Terry Pratchett.

“Endlessly inventive and creative… A show not to be missed!” – Oxford Times

“You know that you have seen something special when total strangers are falling over themselves at the end of the show to rave to each other about what they have just seen.  Thomas Truax is still a bit of a well-kept secret but he’s the cult that everyone should join.” -HiFi Pig Magazine

+ Blackfriargate – 4-piece folk & metal band from Hull, UK.

+ Rich Henry – Rich is an articulate lyricist with a compelling guitar style. Unrestricted original and stripped-back acoustic music
