Theo Tams is rediscovering his identity as an artist and diving into fresh sonic waves. Late in 2020 he started releasing a string of new singles that demonstrate a remarkable command of R&B-laced pop music, his silky tenor the unwavering guiding light. Those singles have received over 400k cross-platform streams and have been featured on a number of editorial playlists at Spotify, Apple Music, and YouTube Music.
Theo is now following up with new single, “Quit U Love,” which concludes Trilogy II – the second of his 3-part Trilogy EP series. “Quit U Love” is a deeply personal song for Theo:
When I wrote “Quit U Love,” I was at the height of my alcohol addiction; it had become this very abusive relationship that I just didn’t know how to leave. I reached a moment of clarity where I started to see my addiction for what it was. I got up early the next morning and recorded the demo – this was the song that really started my journey into sobriety, which is where I am now.
It was important for me to be honest because this song was written during active addiction, not afterwards when the mess was cleaned up. There is a really chill ease to the music – I wanted the melody and the production to completely juxtapose the subject matter.
