On February 18th, 2022, Theodore, the alternative-electro artist and producer hailing from Athens, shares his reflective new single ‘Voyage’ via United We Fly Records. ‘Voyage’ follows ‘Frame Of Reference’, Man And His Tools’ and is the final single to be released ahead of Theodore’s fourth studio album, “The Voyage”, set for release in 2022.
‘Voyage’ opens with spacious synth arrangements to create a stirring ethereal soundscape. The floating ambience builds with exquisite cinematic orchestration, as lyrically Theodore continues to explore the wonderment of the universe and spiritually.
Theodore said “’Voyage’ represents the final part of the journey. It’s the point where the traveller leaves the physical world behind, a world that used to define him. It is the moment when he evolves into his spiritual self. The destination, time and space are yet unknown. “Voyage” is their moment of awareness.
Growing up in Greece had a huge impact on Theodore’s songwriting, the artist’s lyrics reflect on philosophical quests and themes inspired by ancient Greek philosophers such as Plato and Aristotle. This combined with a love of Sci-Fi culture from literature, cinema and music continue to shape the music he creates today.

As well as composers such as Steve Reich, Max Richter and Vangelis.
