Theo is no newcomer to the music scene. The veteran keyboardist/composer was born in Portland Oregon, the third of five boys, all of whom ended up pursuing careers in music. Theo's forays into classical, rock, jazz, country, new age and film music form a musical bridge between the eclectic tastes in his home while growing up. Theo was classically trained and earned a degree in classical piano from Boise State. This multitalented keyboardist won various competitions and eventually gravitated towards a career as a performer and songwriter.
Theo toured for a time with Gary Puckett and the Union Gap as well as with Peter Noone from Herman's Hermits. Bishop also toured with Terry Gregory, a CBS Country Artist. Bishop has produced and written for artists such as Solomon Burke, Gary Puckett, Peter Noone and the Russian rock band, Autograph. In addition to his more recent smooth jazz affiliations, Theo has produced and written for many local artists such as Bartholomew, Meredith Marshall, Megan, The Sugar Daddy's, and Joe Sherbanee, among others.
This year Theo is currently involved with several cable TV projects. These shows include Crime 360, Known Universe, Fight Science and American Cowboy. Theo has credited music on several films, including Laughing with Pygmies and Never Surrender.
