Teddy Thompson (Elton John Support Act)

Teddy Thompson a British folk and rock musician will be supporting Elton John on the 6th June 09′.

In 2000 Thompson released his debut album, Teddy Thompson, which received much critical acclaim. His song “Love Her For That” was featured in the 2002 film, 40 Days and 40 Nights. In 2005, Thompson released his second album, Separate Ways. Teddy’s third album, Upfront & Down Low, was released on Verve Forecast in the United States on July 17, 2007, and in the UK and Europe later in 2007. Thompson’s fourth studio album, A Piece of What You Need, was released via Verve/Forecast on June 17, 2008 and contains all original songs. The album received rave reviews in the UK, and much critical acclaim elsewhere, with many stating that this album is Thompson’s best work to date. A Piece of What You Need debuted at #10 after its first week in the UK Charts during August 2008.

Teddy will be the Opening Act for Elton John, supporting him on a line of dates in June 2009. Teddy will play solo acoustic shows supporting Elton, and also do the Festival scene in The UK later in the Summer of 2009. In addition to his tenor singing voice, Thompson plays both the acoustic and electric guitar, and occasionally the ukulele. He has a strong, versatile and expressive voice which he uses both in the higher and lower vocal range with ease, but he apparently prefers using his voice in the middle register while singing.
