Thomas Truax & Chargr

Thomas Truax
Thomas Truax is an American singer-songwriter renowned for his imaginative self-made instruments and mechanical rhythm machines. A captivating storyteller and performer, his music defies easy categorization but blends elements of art rock, post-punk, and surreal Americana.
With ten studio albums, including the acclaimed ‘Songs From The Films Of David Lynch,’ his songs explore diverse themes including nature, love, technology, and a lifelong fascination with the Moon.
His latest release, ‘Dream Catching Songs,’ features renowned drummer Budgie (Siouxsie & the Banshees, the Slits, The Creatures) thundering along with Truax’s self-made mechanical drummer Mother Superior. It’s been garnering rave reviews with its poignant, sometimes tender, often raucous songs.
Though he 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, Brian Viglione (Dresden Dolls/Violent Femmes) and the late author Terry Pratchett.
“Truax is shaping up nicely as one of the great rock eccentrics.” -UNCUT
“Endlessly inventive and creative…A show not to be missed!” -Oxford Times
“The spectacle of Truax’s live set is unlike anything that you’ll see elsewhere, but if it was all about the mechanical stagecraft it wouldn’t keep bringing us back. Thankfully the songs sparkle with the same sense of invention, imbued with humour and heart” -Joyzine
“His gigs are extraordinary, fizzing with showmanship.” –Q
