On this episode I am joined by multi-talented minimalist Brit, Theo Watts, who joins me from his base in Brighton, on the South Coast of the UK. Theo is a fascinating individual who spends much of his time working as a session musician, performing functions & depping gigs across a wide range of instruments & genres. He also writes & produces his own original music, as well as taking a hands on role in the projects of others. Although, despite his phenomenal talent in music, it does not end there! Theo’s first love was in film, where he’s nurtured a passion for cinematography from a young age. He has a wonderful cinematic style to his content & applies this to the music community by producing wonderful videos for upcoming artists. Featured among the range of those Theo works with is Archie Caine, a fantastic Symphonic Metal singer who also featured in Gideon Ricardo’s Woods of Wonders Opera. But today the focus is on Archie’s multi-faceted drummer, Theo – who balances an ever growing stack of talents with a minimalistic approach to life. Does that sound like a paradox to you? You’ll have to listen to find out how this rather intriguing individual works! And no doubt there will be some valuable takeaways for you. Enjoy ❤️
