St. Theodore is the music project of Dan Heroy. The highly anticipated debut album from St. Theodore titled Sounds Of A Burning Heart was released in July of 2013. The first official single from the album is the song Gonna Get Better which was released to select radio stations in August of 2013. Gonna Get Better has also found online success in the form of being used in many YouTube videos created by YouTube users.
St. Theodore's music is a blend of styles and influences that come together to create a sound that is truly unique. The core sound is rooted in Electronic Indie Pop. However, these genres and labels are routinely stretched and manipulated to create each song. The overall attitude and position of St. Theodore is positive and hopeful. A trademark of the music is to incorporate many hooks throughout the songs. Both in the studio and live, the music is comprised of synthesizers, dynamic drum programming, acoustic and electric guitars, and catchy vocal lines, that create the dynamic sounds of St. Theodore.
Lyrics such as “hold onto the hope thats holds onto you” and “hope will find a way to see you through” from the song Cold Heart Alive capture the hopeful aspect of St. Theodore’s lyrics best. The songs Stay, Gonna Get Better, and Not Turning Back (Radio Edit) offer more whimsical and dreamy imagery in their lyrics.
All of the music and lyrics are written by Heroy for St. Theodore, as he is the only official member of the band. He currently writes and records everything himself in his home studio and then uses a quality team of sound engineers for the mixing and mastering process.

Wilkinson was added to the live band in July 2013 to add a more dynamic feel to the live performances. Heroy currently lives in Nashua, New Hampshire.
