Although he’s new to the industry, 17-year old soulful singer/songwriter Teddy Edwards is somewhat of a veteran when it comes to music. He started piano lessons at four, followed by guitar, and has been writing songs since nine. He eventually taught himself how to produce music via Pro Tools (music DAW). The multi-instrumentalist explains, “I think I’ve always known that it was what I wanted to do. It’s just been such a big part of my life as long as I can remember.” So has his authenticity. Edwards has stayed true to himself, and that translates through to his music. 

“I think that people can honestly tell whether music is real or not. I have a ‘genuinity’ that is hard to maintain in this industry. Growing up in New York City is such an accelerated lifestyle. I stand up for what and who I believe in. My music reflects my reality. It’s a way for people to see who I really am.”

 “I like to think that when people completely devote themselves to something and work hard they can achieve almost anything,” explains Edwards, who produces all of his songs since working with producer/songwriters Phredley Brown musical director for Bruno Mars and Selena Gomez and Black Eyed Peas guitarist, George Pajon, Jr. two summers ago. 

Despite his young age, his music addresses themes and nuances far beyond the halls of high school. “People can relate to the messages in my songs: vulnerability, honesty, fear, guardedness, pressure, confidence, making mistakes and learning. It’s a mix of fun times and dark times – the complexities, contrasts, and ups and downs of life. He continued, “I want to be known as someone who doesn’t just fit in but uses their music to inspire people, someone who works harder than everyone else, is humble but light-spirited and humorous.”
