ABOUT THE ARTIST

Born July 10, 1988 in Chicago and influenced by his parents, including his Mississippi born mother and grandmother, Theo started at the age of fourteen, when his music teacher Mr. Jimmy Tillman – a professional drummer – took him under his wing, winning local talent shows and preforming at open mic nights. He began his professional career, in 2008 at the age of eighteen, with the musical production That Sensuous Seductive Seventies working with actress/singer Jackie Taylor at the Black Ensemble Theatre. Theo received nominations for best Featured Actor in a Play or Musical and Promising Actor for his role in the musical. Theo is preparing to return to the theatrical stage once again in 2018. In 2009 Theo was nominated by the Best of Chicago – Music for Best Blues Act.

Theo honed his craft by preforming on stage with and being mentored by such greats as Koko Taylor, Otis Clay, Marshall Thompson of the Chi-Lites, Bobby Rush, the late great Denise LaSalle, Stan Mosley and working with Benny Latimore and the late great Mel Waiters, who both also wrote and/or produced songs for Theo such as, It’s a Good Thing I Met You and Soul Swing. Learning from many musical giants in the industry and combining many of their best attributes, Theo has developed a unique style of his own. In 2014 he won the Blues Critic Award for Best New Artist and was nominated in 2016 for the National Southern Soul Foundation’s Best Male Artist. Tom Bowser of The Chicago Recordings praised Theo “Theo is good with connecting with his audience. Theo is fun to watch and does a great job of making everyone feel welcome…Theo is the kind of artist whose music appeals also to the elderly long standing fans.”

Theo has found his place in music and is a mirrored reflection of his life at this present time. Theo is a true torch- bearer.
