Theo Bard is a man on a mission. Whether rocking late-night shows with his band, spellbinding listening audiences with his beautiful, heartfelt songs and storytelling to match, or singing his unique urban folk songs as a vagabond one-man-band busker, Theo always brings a music and a vibe that feels just right.

An honest and distinctive voice, deep guitar styles, uplifting grooves and life-loving lyrics combine to make a sound that is both timeless and contemporary. Hook it all onto catchy melodies and beats to lift your feet and you find an exceptional artist drawing sounds from across the musical spectrum, reflecting the diversity of his beloved London.

His songs celebrate love, friendships and good times, the thrills and spills of busking in London’s markets, and his legendary Woodburner music nights in Hackney.

Theo kick-started 2015 with extensive touring in the UK, Belgium and Germany, and he's had a busy summer of touring and festivals with appearances at Glastonbury, Wilderness, Camp Bestival and a host of others.

The new EP, You Give, will be out on October 9 2015.

The actual quality of the songwriting is exceptional” – Bruce MacGregor, Travelling Folk, BBC Radio Scotland.

Theo is a one-man band with an ear for a lyric and a message deftly delivered with honied vocals, simple rhythms and the catchiest of melodies…. -

a reggae-infused pop philosopher… on the cusp of very good things – The Guardian

“For an acoustic singer/songwriter Theo Bard always somehow managed to convey the sense of an epic rock band playing unplugged. Now he has a band in tow – including Björk drummer Tansay Omar – you can only guess he’s found the on switch and an even bigger groove. - John Blakely, Eartrumpet Music

“I would never get a tattoo; unless it was a lyric by this guy I saw busking called Bard.” – “What, Theo Bard?”
