Theodore is a dynamic multi-instrumentalist, composer and performer. He fuses classical composition with electronic elements, to create beautifully atmospheric and often cinematic songs. His unique mélange of influences, from Pink Floyd and Radiohead to a schooling in piano and traditional Greek folk music, has already taken him from Church Studios to supporting Sigur Ros at Release Athens Festival in 2016. Ηis debut album It Is But It’s Not has Theodore playing piano, guitar, synthesizer and glockenspiel, while his bandmates add rock instrumentation alongside an elegant string section. Written and arranged by Theodore, the album was co-produced by Clive Martin (Queen, Reef) and mixed by Ken Thomas (Sigur Rós, Moby, M83) in London, and then performed live at the fabled Studio 2 at Abbey Road Studios. Out on United We Fly in 2016, It Is But It’s Not was met with great acclaim throughout Europe. Before SXSW, Theodore will have performed at Live at Heart in Örebro, Reeperbahn Festival in Hamburg, Eurosonic Noorderslag in Groningen and completed his tour in Spain, Germany, France and the UK. Future plans also include the release of his next album in 2018 on United We Fly.
