Multi-instrumentalist and composerTheodore attended Eurosonic Noorderslag in January for a couple of shows and is now announced for , SXSW in March and Musexpo in April. New single ‘Towards? (for what is to come)’”is up for release March 2nd via United We Fly.
Towards? (for what is to come) is going to be the first song of my upcoming album. This is the initial question I will be exploring throughout the album. It is about the two different sides of one’s personality; the conscious and the magical one and inspired by the battle between them.” – Theodore
“Continually seeking out fresh inspiration, Theodore recently sat down to work on something new, something he had never done before. New song ‘Towards? (for what is to come)’ is the result. Beautiful Sigur Ros-esque noise, it unfurls at its own pace, a patient display of stellar imagination.”
– Robin Murray- Clash Magazine

“..Theodore – ‘It Is But It’s Not’, one of my most exciting discoveries..”
Lauren Laverne, BBC Radio 6 Music (06.09.16) – UK
“REEPERBAHN 2017-BEST PERFORMANCE: THEODORE – Playing in a cramped, sweaty room just off the Reeperbahn, GR – multi-instrumentalist Theodore, and his gang on key wizards and guitar maestros jammed it out highlighting their ruthless ability to – compose atmospherics, with dynamic ingenuity. Harkening in people drifting along the street, and keeping them with their virtuoso performance, Theodore’s command of the (tiny) stage is one that can be rarely challenged.”
