WIKIPEDIA: London was born on the island Trinidad, on February 23 of 1987 and was raised in Brooklyn[2] briefly, then moved to the suburbs of the Poconos. His debut EP Lovers Holiday, released on Warner Bros. Records on February 7, 2011, features TV on the Radio‘s Dave Sitek, Sara Quin from Tegan and Sara, Glasser, and Solange Knowles.[1] His full-length debut album Timez are Weird These Days, mixed by noted producer Dan Carey, was released by Warner Brothers on July 19, 2011. According to critics, London’s “genre-bending approach draws from a range of styles, from soul-pop and post-punk to electro and contemporary R&B,” citing influences that include Michael Jackson and Prince as well as Kraftwerk and the Smiths.” [3] In 2011, London caused a stir with performances at the Cannes Film Festival.[4] London was one of the headliners of the Northside Festival in Brooklyn in June 2011.[5] On June 30th, 2011, London performed at the Montreal International Jazz Festival, in response to which the Montreal Gazette remarked “Theophilus London is going to be big. Very big. The buzz has been building for some time.”[6]
