Who is Theo Spielberg?
Theo Spielberg is an American guitarist best known for being the guitarist, pianist, and back-up vocalist for the indie folk-rock band Wardell. He is also known as the adoptive son of film director Steven Spielberg and actress Kate Capshaw.
Theo formed the band with his younger sister Sasha Spielberg. In October 2013, the duo performed at the CMJ Music Marathon in New York City.
Theo and Sasha performed as kids in puppet shows and cover bands but only began their band in earnest in 2010, with live shows starting in 2012. They then started collaborating in college, when Theo asked Sasha to sing over a chord progression he had been working on. This became the song “Opossum” and was named an NPR Song of the Day in late 2011.
His sister Sasha said the duo created the song quickly, “like, in an hour”. Opossum brought the band national exposure and led to their signing with Roc Nation.
In March 2013, Wardell played at South by Southwest and released their Brother/Sister EP in the summer. The band’s album Love/Idleness was released on February 10, 2015, on their own label. The album’s first single, “Funny Thing” had been released in November 2014.
