Born: 1976 in London, England, UK.
Teddy Thompson is an English singer-songwriter. Born in 1976 in a London Sufi commune, he is the son of folk-rock musicians Richard and Linda Thompson.
At the age of 18 Thompson moved to Los Angeles to pursue his music career. In 2000 he released his debut album Teddy Thompson. The album received much critical acclaim, but achieved little commercial success. During the time between his debut album and follow up he released the moderately successful Blunderbuss EP, and toured as part of Rosanne Cash's band. His song "Love Her For That" was featured in the film 40 Days and 40 Nights.
In 2005 Thompson released his second long player, Separate Ways. The album has a strong second-generation artist theme, with Rufus and Martha Wainwright featuring, who are close friends of Thompson. He has toured and recorded with both the Wainwright siblings, including on Rufus' 2003 album Want One. They also recorded a version of "King of the Road" for the 2005 film Brokeback Mountain. Thompson also contributed a solo track for the film. Jenni Muldaur, daughter of Geoff Muldaur and Maria Muldaur, also features.
Separate Ways also features Dave Mattacks, Tony Trischka and Garth Hudson of The Band. The album was produced by Brad Albetta, who also produced Martha Wainwright's lauded debut album.
In 2006, he participated in "I'm Your Man", a film tribute to the legendary Leonard Cohen, contributing interviews and covering some of Cohen's work along with the Wainwrights, Nick Cave, and the McGarrigle sisters (among others). A CD Soundtrack featuring select covers was released by Verve in 2006.
In December 2006 he appeared with his mother Linda and younger sister Kamila as part of the Rufus and Martha Wainwright's Christmas Spectacular at Carnegie Hall in New York.
