Live performance by Theo Eastwind


I first heard Theo while heading to some destination via the NYC subway. Often the subways are filled with performers-- some pretty average, but the good ones always stand out (my favorite being an African-American whose name I don't know, performing popular tunes at the 86th St. 1&9 stop, which he's given a new melody in an Afro-Calypso style). Theo Eastwind is always a standout. He often plays to indifferent travellers at the downtown 86th St. C & D or #6 platforms with an upright bass player. His songs have melodies that cut through the roar of arriving trains. The lyrics have a poignant charm, deeper than pure popsongs. Eastwind also performs in NYC's Lower Eastside clubs. Check out his website for upcoming dates:


Theo Eastwind has 3 albums: "W.I.P.", "Oh La La Li," and "One." Ordering information is available through Theo's website.
