Behind the success of his debut album, Timez Are Weird These Days, Theophilus London has spent the last two years traversing across the globe, selling out clubs from Paris to Australia to NYC and performing on TV shows like The Late Show with David Letterman, 90210, Jimmy Kimmel Live! and France’s Concert Du Grand Journal.
The Trinidad-born, Brooklyn-bred singer has become well known internationally for his culturally eclectic style of music and dress. Theophilus is consistently highlighted in press and pop culture for his breakout sound and strong personal image.
He’s a stronghold in publications from Complex to Rolling Stone to The New York Post. Between rapping on the Rebecca Minkoff runway, performing at parties for GQ and Tommy Hilfiger, two design collaborations with Cole Haan and Del Toro, multiple shoots for Vogue and “Style Icon” status everywhere from Vanity Fair to GQ, Theophilus’ fashion industry presence has catapulted along with his music career. Theophilus is currently in the studio in Paris, working on his new album which will be out in 2013.
“Theophilus London aggressively pushes modern hip-hop into indie rock hipsterdom… London admires Prince, Marvin Gaye, and Michael Jackson, and that era of silken yet synthesizer-tinged pop imbues Lovers Holiday.” –SPIN “Thanks to a number of artists, rap feels new again. And the 24 year-old Theophilus London is one of the biggest reasons for this.” –New York Times Magazine “Timez Are Weird These Days highlights his chameleonic ability to inhabit different genres while retaining a romantic pop sensibility.” – Interview “London mixes together seemingly disparate styles to create a sound that bridges the gap between hip-hop, indie-rock and his soul and R&B influences.” – The Wall Street Journal “An MC who takes his cues from Morrissey as much as from Notorious B.I.G., Theophilus London is the kind of rare, genuinely original artist for whom the rules of genre simply don’t apply.”
