teddycrockett celebrates the release of "Sell The World" with special guest Yela!
Expect an eclectic mix of ‘70’s classic soul, rock and blues all with a modern sensibility in a stripped-down set from Bed Stuy’s own teddycrockett. Teddy will also preview songs from “Had My Reasons”, the next EP in a series he’ll be releasing over the coming months.
“My dad was a musician and he believed there were actually only four genre’s of music: jazz, rock, gospel and classical. Anything with a back beat he considered rock, so this included the entire diaspora of R&B, soul, classic rock, punk, hip hop, etc. He listened to it all and so I grew up believing pretty much all music was related"
"With my new songs I hoped to tap into the timeless songwriting styles that I grew up loving. I think solid, tuneful songs will never go out of style. I’m not afraid to wear my influences openly on my sleeve, ‘cause none of the cats I look up to— Jimi, Prince, Marvin, Sly, etc — hid where they came from either. I think I heard that Miles use to repeat the adage, ‘the good ones borrow but the great ones steal’ and I def seek to reach towards greatness.”
