St. Theodore is the music project of Dan Heroy. Heroy has been a part of the regional music scene in New England for many years through other bands and projects. However, with the birth and concept of St. Theodore created in late 2010 and the emergence of the project in 2011, he embarked on what was a long awaited solo music endeavor. Heroy is currently finishing St. Theodoreʼs first album, which is tentatively titled Sounds Of A Burning Heart. The album is due to be released in the first half of 2013. The first two official singles from this upcoming album to be released are the songs, Stay and Not Turning Back (Radio Edit), and are available for streaming or purchase all over the web (iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, last.fm, and many others). A limited edition promotional album titled Promo EP was released in the summer of 2012 mostly for radio and other PR uses, as well as for sale at select shows.
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. These genres and labels are routinely stretched and manipulated however to create each song. The lyrical aspect of St. Theodore’s music is usually reflective in nature. Heroy probes some of the deeper questions and issues of life, while at the same time offering hope and assurance when facing life’s difficulties or unpleasant circumstances. The overall attitude and position of St. Theodore is positive and hopeful. Heroy is the singular musician and voice behind the music. Both in the studio and live, the music is comprised of dynamic drum loops created by Heroy, sequencers, synthesizers, acoustic and electric guitars, and catchy vocal lines, that create the 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 single releases Stay and Not Turning Back (Radio Edit) offer more whimsical and dreamy imagery in their lyrics.
All of the music and lyrics are written by Dan Heroy for St. Theodore, as he is the only 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.
