Perfecting his craft for more than a decade, Theo’s hypnotizing voice and mastery of the guitar harkens back to the sound of George Thorogood. Theo’s lifelong musical journey started in St. Louis giving him a “bluesy” foundation that can be heard throughout his songs today. As a longtime resident of the DMV, his blues and rock tone is mature and gives him a unique and resonate edge.
Some fans liken Theo’s vocals to the haunted charm found in Thom Yorke of Radiohead, but with a touch of David Bowie’s deep, pained, voice. The album is particularly refreshing to hear today, as many artists have steered away from the tortured, yet soothing sound that Sampel This embodies. Other big name musicians such as Marc Capponi (Piano/Keys), Dajando Smith (Bass Guitar), and Tom Barrick (Percussion) are on the album.
Sampel This represents the epic ride taken by some of the DMV’s best musicians to co-create this smokey, magic-filled record. The musicianship that the artists bring to this release gives it a unique sound that is hauntingly moving yet promises a rockin’ good time. Take the journey and be true. Purchase HERE.
