Teddy is a singer/songwriter often described as an old soul. He grew up in Lovettsville, VA where he bought his first guitar when he was 12. He taught himself how to play, then progressed toward teaching himself the harmonica, banjo, mandolin, and piano. He accompanies his music using a homemade “suitcase” drum to keep the beat and add rhythm to his performance.

 

Teddy plays a unique blend of Folk and Americana and has been influenced by classic artists such as Jackson Browne, The Band, and Paul Simon. Current influences include The Avett Brothers, Dawes, Gregory Alan Isakov, and Ryan Adams. Teddy draws on the story telling genre of such artists as Josh Ritter and Jason Isbell to create original songs that “take you somewhere”.
