Theo Altieri 

Mallory Nicholson speaks to the Swindon-born singer/songwriter on his dreams of making it big

Theo Altieri writes, plays and produces all of his music himself, playing a mix of indie folk music. He has also recently been signed to Warner Music International and is definitely one to watch for 2013 and beyond!

Mallory Nicholson spoke to him just before he took to the stage at the Best Of Swindon content last weekend (26 May).

M: What was your first reaction when asked to perform at the ‘Best Of Swindon’ Concert?

T: My first reaction was, this is insane! I used to play with Josh many moons ago when I supported him at gigs, and you’ve just gotta look at how massive he is now!

M: What are your goals for the rest of your music career?

T: Eventually to get it out the masses as any artist wants, for the time being it's more about building material up, playing more gigs - small and large - as well as building up a fan base. In the meantime writing some good records that people will enjoy.

 
M: Which of your songs was the best to perform tonight?

T: Probably ‘Txt me Back’ that I performed with Daine Angel because people actually recognise it and are familiar with the song, and I think that's a big step for me and my music.

M: What song are you most proud of that you've written?

T: I’d say ‘Wait for Tomorrow’ that I played with the band tonight, I guess it's quite personal 'cause it's about capturing your youth, going against all the stuff you see in the charts where they paint a certain picture of you, and that's not how it really is.

 
M: What advice would you give to anyone else trying to make it in the music industry?

T: I think it's really about writing your own material. There's only two roads you can take really - there's writing your own stuff or there's performing covers in a pub for money! Try and get into producing if you can, and make use of the internet by putting demos on ‘Facebook’ and ‘Soundcloud’.
