Hello! It's likely you already know me if you've landed here but if not, just think of me as a man that loves to sculpt sound waves into stories and to build instruments and music machines out of spare parts.
I believe in recycling, the welfare of animals, and lots of reverb.
I'm happy to announce I've started work on a brand new album. I'm also exploring some ideas that wont wind up fitting so comfortably within the traditional album context, and I believe THIS platform is the perfect avenue to share that content with you.
There's also the building of some Mini Honicators ( thomas-truax.bandcamp.com/merch/mini-hornicator-pre-order-custom-made-by-thomas-2 and continued work on a book of illustrated Wowtown stories on the side. Good Lord! It's a lot to juggle I know, and I could use your help. My intention is to roll together the best elements of the various crowd-funding platforms out there into this one so that everyone that's part of it gets a great, ongoing experience.
Some of the things you'll get if you join the Full Moon Music Club:
• FULL MOON SURPRISE!
Every month on or around the full moon something special will be delivered via the members-only feed. (Often this will be music, but not necessarily).
• WHAT'S HE BUILDING IN THERE?
I've got some exciting new ideas for some instruments and contraptions. These often become something completely different in the end. Join me in the lab/workshop for an insider view on the journey.
• A MEMBERS-ONLY EP
Scheduled for release in January, you'll get a brand new 4 song Members-Only EP.
• A GOOD FEELING
Knowing you're helping to support one of the hardest working independent artists you know, so that he can keep thinking and creating 'outside the box.' And my deep gratitude for your help.
ISN'T THIS JUST LIKE PATREON THEN?
In many ways yes it is, but I went with Bandcamp because it's more music-centric (you can download releases in a whole variety of formats) and because I know a lot of you already through here.
