The development of his unique style is the result of him not following the way of other musical influence. He has been influenced by other great artists of course, like Earth Wind and Fire and Jimmy Hendrix but has changed to go a different way, the way of his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. His music is like none other. His unique style is what brings life and interest to his music.
His interest in music grew at the age of 12 when his parents bought him a snare drum and crash cymbal for Christmas. He was a real drummer boy! His sister received a guitar for Christmas in which he grew to find more interest in. With persistence, getting him to use it prompted him at the age 16 to buy his own Gibson Epiphone guitar while working part time and going to high school.
His first incursion into learning in depth how to play his guitar came when his parents paid for him to take guitar lessons. His interest was so great until it only took a couple of months from his instructor to get him started. He was a self driven musician. He continued playing his guitar by ear and applied reading music from what he learned when he played trombone in the 7th grade band. He has continued to pursue his music career since then and made a decision to stick with it.
Theodore’s musical journey started when he performed in talent shows and played at numerous gigs. He was the lead guitarist and alternate lead singer for many years. He stirred the audience with his falsetto and playing his guitar behind his head and with his teeth. It was here that he developed his musical tastes and interests, and has thrived to become the artist God is calling him to be.
After realizing that making music was his main goal, he began to write and produce his own music. He was quickly noted for the unique style that he brought to R&B, Pop, and now Contemporary Gospel music.
As his confidence grew he decided to find someone to help him get his music heard. That is when he found Ben Weisman and Len Weisman of Parliament Records in Los Angeles, CA. He became a loyal writer/producer for them. They have taken Theodore under their wings and he is now ready to fly. His talent with a variety of musical instruments, all played by him added to his appeal, and his unique Angelic sound.
His productions provide a combination of his exciting guitar playing, keyboard sounds, drums, and melodious vocals, with a rhythmic undercurrent that bears testament to his extraordinary talent. He glorifies God through his lyrics and phenomenal musical gift.
