THÉA has always been surrounded by music. Between her mom’s Gospel and her dad’s love for jazz, she developed a passion for soul. At an early age, she entered a music program to remedy her shy nature. There she learned to play several instruments (guitar, piano and drums) and was encouraged to compose music of her own. She also learned about performing in gigs throughout the year. Reveling in the colours and textures of music, she fell in love in particular with performance and composition.
From the beginning, THÉA was supported by her brother, house artist JAW. In 2013, she was a special guest for French trio dOP’s set at France’s largest electronic music festival, Les Plages Éléctroniques in Cannes. At fifteen, she released ‘Drink’, co-written with lyricist Lydia Golding. It appeared on JAW’s Midtown album, marking her official start as a singer-songwriter.
Her move to London in 2017 to study songwriter marked the next stage of her career. She’s already realised a number of dreams, like co-writing with The Dunwells, and performing with dOP in one of London’s most iconic nightclub, Fabric. She’s involved in many projects, such as co-writing a dark music EP with producer Benwaah, and working on her soul rock album with THÉA FULL BAND
