The Atlanta native, born Jaten Dimsdale, has been tugging at heartstrings since posting a series of covers from his bedroom studio in 2019, which generated hundreds of millions of views and scored him a deal with Warner Records. Teddy changed his focus to introspective originals on 2020’s Unlearning EP, garnering praise from American Songwriter, Billboard, and Rolling Stone, who named him an artist to watch in 2021. Soon thereafter, performances on The Kelly Clarkson Show, Today, and The Late Show With Stephen Colbert and opening for Zac Brown Band’s Summer arena tour cemented his status as a rising star. 2022 marked a banner year for Teddy with the release of his two latest EPs, Tough Love and Sleep is Exhausting, a number of notable collaborations, performances on Ellen, The Late Late Show With James Corden, and Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and his Tough Love headline world tour. With more than 800 million global streams to his credit, as well as a social following that exceeds 10 million, Teddy’s songs of devotion have clearly connected.
