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've been hard at work on a brand new album. (UPDATE AUG 2017: It's Almost finished!!) Joining this club is the best and most personal way you can help me see it through and give it a proper launch. But there's so much more!
I'm also exploring some ideas that wont wind up fitting so comfortably within the traditional album context, and I believe that bandcamp's subscription platform is the perfect avenue to share that content with you.
There's 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. Whew! It's a lot to juggle I know, and I could sure use your help. My intention has been 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!
A bit like my Monthly Journal album project, but from SPACE! Every month on or around the full moon something special will be delivered via the members-only feed. Usually this will be new exclusive songs, (though not necessarily). Since I launched the club last January, an atmospheric string of pieces, often instrumental, has gradually been taking form that often involve a lunar/space-travel related theme. It's taking on a life as a kind of album project in its own right.
• 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
A new 4 song EP exclusively for members of this club called 'Of Stars, Snakes and Ladders' will be yours as soon as you sign up. If you sign up on the 'physical' tier, you'll get a CD copy delivered to your home.
• 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 his deep gratitude for your help.

ISN'T THIS JUST LIKE PATREON THEN?
In many ways 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.
Questions or suggestions? Email or send me a message via the contact link on this site. Like many things I do this will be a metamorphosing work in progress and your feedback will be an important and highly appreciated part of it.
I couldn't do what I do without the support of people like yourself, thank you so much!
See you on the inside!
