The Songwriter


Dubbed “the Kurt Vonnegut of songwriting,” Theo Czuk is a critically acclaimed singer/songwriter and an award winning novelist. Lyrically akin to, and armed with, Vonnegut’s rapier wit and incisive insight, Theo’s slant on the world has been described as “catawampus and exhilarating.”    

An URBAN FOLKSINGER, Theo was born and raised on the hardscrabble streets of Detroit and spent his youth toe tapping boulevard curbs to the grooves of the city swelter. When at an early age he was introduced to Bob Dylan, the die was cast and the URBAN FOLKSINGER was chiseled.

With a rust-belt groove bolted under vocal, piano and guitar, songsmith Theo Czuk brings a gritty urban blue-collar sound to songs of love and hope and survival. A modern day humorist in the model of Will Rogers and Mark Twain, Theo share’s personal life stories with songs of humor and tempo’d tales of verse.

  • Songs that are spot-welding on the midnight shift at the Plymouth assembly plant.
  • Songs with a five-o’clock shadow.
  • Songs with their tongue planted firmly in their cheek.
  • Two-fisted songs of growling saxophone in one fist and a boilermaker in the other.
  • Songs that grew up under the belly of a salt-rusted Chevy, wrenching at the oil pan.
