“The command and insight Lawrence brings to his songcraft is nothing short of astounding” – Saving Country Music
Theo Lawrence is a young, independent French-Canadian songwriter, musician & singer based out of Bordeaux, France, and more recently, Austin, Texas. His music is rooted in the country music songs of the 1950’s and 1960’s, borrowing elements from Soul, Pop, and Rock ’n’ Roll of the same era. A mix of styles & sounds, done with a deep love for tradition, while bearing the mark of modern times.
For the last ten years, Theo has been one of France’s leading purveyor of the tight, subtle American groove. He fully comes into his own with his latest Austin-crafted album, Cherie, in a genre French musicians are not expected : classic country. The whole gamut of a Texas Dance Hall band, delivered with a croon straight out of Charlie Rich or Ray Price’s golden years.
Theo releases his music on his own record label, Tomika Records, which is also home to other kindred spirits sharing the same passion for record artistry and tradition.
