Musician and Inventor Thomas Truax to play Cambridge on 15th February. The show is in support of his new record, ‘All That Heaven Allows’ on February 2nd. tickets for the Cambridge show are available here.
In what will be his ninth full-length album, we find the maestro anything but settled. After five years based in Germany, Truax began 2017 in the US, but left again the day after Trump was sworn into office in January. He has rarely stopped to look back from thereon. He got married in March (in Gibraltar) and relocated to the UK shortly thereafter, with a steady stream of tour dates and recording sessions always on his agenda. Along the way, he always kept an eye on the news, an ear to the ground, and a notebook in pocket.
The result of these travels is ‘All That Heaven Allows’ – ten new tracks of surreal Americana and sonic adventure. With songs littered with trains, flying machines, dreams, romance, shootings, hurricanes, migrants, ‘bad leaders,’ an unfortunate spider, escape, transcendence, alligator shoes and more solid advice from the recurring comforting presence of Thomas’s Granny; Truax’s latest long player is a celebration of life and sound and a search for meaning and hope in troubled, dangerous times.
