Teddy Thompson’s UK tour has been rescheduled to January/February 2022 and he will release a new solo album to coincide with the tour. His critically-acclaimed album HEARTBREAKER PLEASE is out now. Roseanne Reid will open for all dates, bringing her own new releases to the stages.
Called ‘one of the most gifted singer-songwriters of his generation’ by The New York Times, singer-songwriter Teddy Thompson is a native Englishman who has adopted New York City as his home. Famously the son of singer-songwriters Richard and Linda Thompson, he emigrated to the States, barely out of his teens, to embark on a career of his own. He was heavily influenced not by folk music but by such artists as Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley and the Everly Brothers.
He has released five albums to critical acclaim and has contributed to the soundtrack of the Golden Globe and Bafta-winning film Brokeback Mountain. He has also collaborated on projects with Rufus and Martha Wainwright and recorded songs for the soundtrack to the Leonard Cohen tribute I’m Your Man. He contributed songs to the Nick Drake retrospective Way to Blue.
Teddy will perform at the Pocklington Arts Centre on 22nd January 2022 and the Brudenell Social Club in Leeds on January 23rd 2022.
