Biography

Theo Bishop is no newcomer to the music scene. The veteran keyboardist/composer was born in Portland Oregon, the third of five boys, all of who ended up pursuing careers in music. For the most part Theo’s forays into classical, rock, jazz, country, new age and film music form a musical bridge of sorts between the tastes of his two older brothers who dug rock & country and his two younger siblings who were both classical musicians. Theo too was classically trained. He grew up in Boise Idaho playing in rock bands and earning a degree in classical piano from Boise State. The multitalented keyboardist won various competitions and after testing his hand at a variety of musical styles he eventually gravitated towards a career as a performer and songwriter. Theo toured for a time with Gary Puckett from Gary Puckett and the Union Gap and played with Peter Noone from Hermans Hermits.

Bishop also toured with Terry Gregory a CBS Country Artist.

A few years later Bishop formed Native Language, a new wavish Bowie-esque rock venture that played well into the 90s and was signed with Carmen Productions and Joe Godfried based at Sound City Studios. Carmen was involved with Rick Springfield and Pat Benatar This group was also the namesake for the label that Bishop & Joe Sherbanee co-founded in 1996.

Bishop has produced and written for artists such as Solomon Burke, Gary Puckett, Peter Noone, and the Russian rock band, Autograph.
