Music has always been a part of his life. Growing up, Theodis says this life-long love affair with music began when he lived on Highway 61 on the other side of the road from Miss Willie Mae’s Juke Joint.
“I would just sit on the steps and listen to the sounds coming from there”, the heart and soul of the Blues. Since leaving Mississippi, Theodis always carried the “Mississippi Juke Joint Spirit” with him through his music.
As one of 11 children in his family, Theodis wanted to travel the world and the U.S. Air Force provided the opportunity. During his military tour of service, Theodis was stationed in Hawaii for 6 years and then moved to Oakland, California before making Atlanta, Georgia his permanent home.
Still holding strong to his Mississippi roots, Theodis played guitar with such notable artists as Little Milton, Johnny Clyde Copeland, Richard “Dimples” Fields, the Blues Brothers and the ‘legendary’ Charles Brown. This musical journey enabled Theodis to generate a personal style based upon his love of diverse music — blues, country, soul and rock
