Event details

Postponed from the 23rd May 2020.

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. As NPR reported, "Teddy says he didn't listen to any music made after 1959 until he was 16. As a kid, he listened to early rock 'n' roll and country music exclusively." This resulted in a unique voice that is at once rock and country, then pop and folk.

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 two songs for the soundtrack to the Leonard Cohen tribute 'I'm Your Man'. He contributed two songs to the Nick Drake retrospective 'Way to Blue'.

Teddy Thompson's new album 'Heartbreaker Please' comes out on 24 April 24 on 30 Tigers.
