    I absolutely love working with Theo! He and I have worked on countless songs and in every session he brings an incredible energy and enthusiasm. His instincts as a producer are spot on, rhythmic, modern, powerful, polished, and he always makes sure his production stands out in a unique way. Not to mention he's a wonderful person and both professional and easy going. His high quality production has resulted in multiple rep deals by reputable agencies. He's a star!

    Theo is absolutely a go-to producer for me. Any time I've needed a certain sound or vibe, he nails it! Communication is on point, has amazing ideas that keep the production fresh and unique while still top 40 friendly, and overall he's a great person!

    I absolutely loved working with Theo! He quickly took my song idea to another level making it sound radio ready and just brilliant! It was signed soon after to a sync agency, and it's being pitched for sync opportunities. Theo is someone I know I will work with again because I can always count on him being fun to work with who always delivers professional songs.

    I have worked with Theo twice. Both songs came out perfectly radio ready. Aside from his superb musicality, Theo is calm and clear headed. There is no drama, he does what he says he will do. And he does it well.

    Theo is one of the best producers and songwriters I’ve ever worked with. He’s so quick with his ideas and his mixes are so clean. I’m always amazed at how he can take my song to the next level and leave it radio ready. He is definitely go-to for me.
