Cinematic Singer/Songwriter-Rock, Postrock
Best Performance @ Reeperbahn-Festival 2017

THEODORE is a dynamic multi-instrumentalist, composer & performer.
The Jury of the Reeperbahn-Festival wrote:
"...Greek multi-instrumentalism 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 stage is one that can be rarely challenged."

He has already garnered considerable success with his previous album "It Is But It's Not" which was co-produced by Clive Martin (Queen, Reef) mixed by Ken Thomas (Sigur Rós, Moby, M83) and performed live at the fabled Studio 2 at Abbey Road Studios.
With over 1.7 million Youtube views, he has received radioplay from the likes of BBC Radio 6 Music’s Lauren Laverne and French station RadioKC, included as part of NPR Music's ‘SXSW 2018: Our Favorite Discoveries And Memorable Moments’ and has received support from publications such as CLASH Mag, FGUK, Gaffa, Tsugi and Szene.
THEODORE has gained notoriety for his memorable live performances, dazzling audiences with his mesmerizing stage presence. He has graced the stages of Live at Heart, Eurosonic Noorderslag and Reeperbahn Festival (Best Performance of 2017).
Fusing classical composition with electronic elements to create beautiful, atmospheric and often cinematic songs, his sound is
characterized by contrasting styles. Covering a wide sonic scope, his unique mélange of influences allow a broad scope of movement from
ethereal to melancholic, to classical to post rock, drowning ethereal melodies in a cauldron of psychedelic sounds.
His most notable performances include supporting Sigur Ros and DIIV at Release Festival Athens (2016), writing a new score for Buster Keaton’s classic silent comedy of 1928, ‘The Cameraman’, which he performed live with his band at the film screening in the unforgettable setting of the Temple of Zeus in Athens, the show at the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center as part of the Music Escapades series, and the audiovisual performance at the steps of Hermoupolis City Hall in Syros, for the closing ceremony of Animasyros 10 (2017).
This year, after shows in New York, SXSW, MUSEXPO LA and a tour in Portugal, Theodore will be travelling to Europe for his next tour, while his upcoming album with be released in the fall.
‘Towards? (for what is to come)’ is a sonic stream of consciousness, capturing every nuance of Theodore’s technical wizardry.
Theodore says: “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’s ‘Spit Blood Out (single version)’ is an triumphant, atmospheric swirl of emotions; tight percussion, soaring vocals, celestial synthesizers and intoxicating basslines all float amidst solar rays of shimmered guitar tones.
Sorrowed piano’s twinkle and glimmer like distant stars, circling back through cascading decadence before erupting brighter than the
heavens themselves.
Theodore comments: “A final struggle to gather all your strength and prepare for the ultimate inner battle. A voice in your head that
screams for solution.”
