Thomas Truax joins Pledge

By | Published on Tuesday 4 May 2010

CMU favourite Thomas Truax has become the latest artist to join fan-funding site Pledge Music to help raise cash to fund the launch of his previously reported new album, ‘Sonic Dreamer’, which is due for release on 7 Jun.

There are various packages on offer for investors, but I’m currently weighing up whether or not I can afford to go for a donation that will get me a miniature version of one of Truax’s self-invented instruments. Other items on offer include CDs, t-shirts, sketches, a self-portrait, personalised recordings and the chance to have Truax perform in your living room.

In other Pledge news, the company’s founder, Benji Rogers will be appearing on the panel for CMU’s City Showcase workshop at the Apple Store on Regent Street in London this Thursday. Entitled ‘Famous For Fifteen Megabytes’, it will give new artists the chance to hear from and question five leading digital music experts on which digital tools are worth your time, and which can really help an artist launch and manage their own successful music careers.
