“Enthralling, mind-blowingly original and totally bonkers : just a few ways to describe Thomas Truax and his creative circus of the wonderfully surreal.” -Alex Flynn, Brighton Noise

One of the most imaginative characters on the pop music fringe, Thomas Truax (pronounced troo-aks) travels the world performing with his “band” of bizarre self-made Harry Partch-esque instruments including a motorized drum machine made of bike wheels called ‘Mother Superior’ and a pimped-up Dr. Seuss-ian Gramophone called ‘The Hornicator’, as well as his venerable resonator guitar ‘Hank’.

More than just an inventor and entertainer, Truax crafts rich, poetically evocative songs about insects, trees, technology and various reasons ‘Why Dogs Howl at The Moon’. Notable supporters and collaborators include Jarvis Cocker, Duke Special, Richard Hawley, David Lynch, Amanda Palmer, and Brian Viglione (of the Dresden Dolls/Violent Femmes) who plays drums on Thomas’s new studio album (his eighth): ‘Jetstream Sunset’.
