Teddy's style is difficult to categorize, because his influences are varied. Growing up around folk music, he listened to a musical gamut that covered Hank Williams, Jimi Hendrix, Sam Cooke and gospel. As he fell in with other musical progeny, most notably close friend Rufus Wainwright, his sound developed into his own combination of country/western, rock, and his father's folk-rock.
Teddy played regular shows at Jon Brion's venue, Largo, in Los Angeles while getting his first album contract together. He signed with Geffen, who had big plans for him - but Geffen was soon after swallowed up by Virgin, who did not. Teddy's debut came out with little fanfare and less push from the label. He took a few years to tour and write before finally recording his second album on his own, and has been touring in support of that. While reviews for his first album were generally positive, the critics have gushed over his second album. Teddy has found his own sound and voice, although his family remains heavily involved in his music.
Teddy's latest album, 'A Piece of What You Need' is out now in America and will be released on 25th August in the UK.
