The king of Self-made Instruments. Inventive and romantic" -TimeOut New York
THOMAS TRUAX returns to The Fulford Arms
Merging a fevered imagination and solid songwriting with a mad scientist's brain for weird gadgets, New Yorker Thomas Truax is a true one-off.
UNCUT magazine says "Truax is shaping up nicely as one of the great rock eccentrics" while Splendid magazine called him "one of the five or ten best singer/songwriters in the world that you've never heard of...an exceptional talent."
His evolving "band" of self-made sound sculptures include a motorized drum machine made of bike wheels called 'Mother Superior' and a souped up Gramophone called 'The Hornicator', but he never leaves his trusty guitar out of the equation too long.
Thomas crafts rich, poetically evocative songs about insects, trees, technology, and a lifelong obsession with things lunar, including various reasons 'Why Dogs Howl at The Moon'. His nine studio LPs include highly-rated covers album 'Songs From The Films Of David Lynch'.
A new album ‘All that Heaven Allows’ has been garnering national airplay on BBC6 and extremely positive reviews.
"A live show not to be missed!" -Oxford Times
