“Life is full of chapters that nearly write themselves. We make choices as if we are true predictors of our fate, however, through 26 years of life this is a huge lie. The Party Thieves project was my wake up call to life. To be honest, this wasn’t my plan A; in fact it wasn’t even a thought, until it swiftly became a reality. Having attended the United States Military Academy (West Point) as a student-athlete my future was set (in my mind) on the NFL or military service. Several major injuries to my knees and mental health erased any plans I had for myself and almost naturally, I turned to music. Now music has turned into my life’s next chapter. After only 5 years of pretending to know what I’m doing, this project has taken me around the world and back, literally, and I’ve never been more appreciative of what my peers, friends, family, and friends have assisted in writing this past chapter. Now, I do believe is the time for life’s next chapter, THIEVES. Life does not know how to hesitate or slow down and that’s my motto with the next step of the project. I love you all, my fans, my people. No fear, only acceptance.” – THIEVES (FKA Party Thieves)
“Coming on 7 years of growing the Party Thieves brand we couldn’t be more thankful for your support,” his dedicated team says to the fans that have made everything possible. “With over 30 million streams gathered across countless original releases and remixes, over 250 shows played in every corner of the world, Party Thieves and the Theft Army have grown immensely since his humble beginnings in 2013. Over 6 years we have been able to mature as a team and allowed for Party Thieves to make his mark within the electronic scene whether it was his rise within the cultivation of trap music and then taking his talents beyond that to ameliorate his talents further. However, with growth, there also comes evolution and so the Party Thieves team is excited to announce the development of the ‘Party Thieves’ project into ‘THIEVES’. Continuing on with the same dedication and passion, the team looks forward to presenting fresh music and new ideas to help ‘THIEVES’ create an even bigger impact in the music space, and beyond, than ever before. Focusing on constantly perfecting his production, ‘THIEVES’ is looking forward to surpassing his production skills and sharing the newly crafted music he has been preparing for months. The team looks forward to presenting the sophisticated entity of THIEVES to you, while making sure to never straying from our roots.” – THIEVES & TEAM
With tens of millions of streams on everything from originals to remixes and a unique background which includes stints as a West Point cadet and a wide receiver for the Army football team, NYC-based solo artist THIEVES, previously known as Party Thieves, has swiftly made his presence known in the music world. His ability to be able to take any track or idea and make it his own has been recognized by renowned names like RL Grime, Skrillex, and Diplo. Producing for years now, THIEVES is known for his bass bin-rattling hits, ‘Origin’ and ‘Poppy Seeds’, both tracks expressing his unique style from the moment the vocals hit in a rush of adrenaline and endorphins, combining hard-hitting trap elements and with a deep musicality.
THIEVES has also inspired a movement called the Theft Army; an army hungry for the incredible music he consistently puts out. Going beyond just the music though, THIEVES uses his platform and following to make a bigger difference within communities. Being able to unite his passion for music with his philanthropic values, the Theft Army movement goes beyond celebrating a killer track or party.
