Teddy Thompson

The only son of British folk-rock legends Richard & Linda Thompson, Teddy Thompson was born in 1976, during his parents' time living in a Muslim community outside of London. He first came to the musical public eye in 1996 when he turned up on his father's You, Me, Us? album, contributing backing vocals. He eventually opened for Richard on a number of solo dates following the record's release, as well as adding guitar and supporting vocals on 1999's Mock Tudor and the subsequent tour. A live, mail-order-only disc of Richard's 1998 solo, acoustic shows featured Teddy teaming with him on a handful of tunes, including {Richard & Linda's classic "A Heart Needs a Home," the Left Banke's "She May Call You Up Tonight," and a wonderful version of "Persuasion," co-written by Richard and Tim Finn. In the summer of 2000, Teddy released his self-titled debut for Virgin Records. The album is a collection of self-penned folk-pop tunes produced by singer/songwriter Joe Henry and featuring Richard's guitar on several tracks. He's also recorded a duet with his mother for a Waterson's tribute. Brett Hartenbach
