|Born in Virginia and reared in the foothills of South Carolina, Teddy Baker’s music career began at the age
of nine. Since then, it has spanned a multitude of genres from his early days of country and bluegrass, to his
later years of rock, rhythm & blues and gospel music. His love for performing was surpassed only by his
passion for writing the songs that he sang. In the late seventies, his interest in writing led him to Georgia
where he and two mutual friends opened an original music venue called The Bistro. It was there that Teddy
had the opportunity to work with many artists and writers in the Atlanta music scene such as White Face,
Mother’s Finest, The Producers, and The Miles Brothers.
It was not long before his talent was recognized by the record industry. In the early eighties, Teddy released
his first charted single with Casablanca Records called, “It’s Over” which was produced by
songwriter/musician, Paul Davis (“I Go Crazy,” “Cool Night”) and the now legendary Nashville
engineer/producer Ed Seay. As they continued to work together, Paul Davis became a mentor to Teddy in a
way which greatly impacted his writing style, and still does to this day. With the release of Paul’s hit single,
“Cool Night,” the Teddy Baker Band toured with Paul throughout the mid-eighties performing on such
television shows as American Bandstand and Solid Gold.
Today, Teddy has returned to his roots performing as a solo act; singing some of his favorite classic songs
as well as the songs that he has penned over the last several years. His new songs talk about the wonder of
life, love, and the pursuit of happiness through the stories he shares from a life filled with passion, faith,
listening to others, and an undying love for writing his music!
As an entertainer, Teddy’s desire is to entertain through his message and music. His stage presence is
focused on drawing his audience into his stories while touching their hearts and lives with his songs. As he
continues to build his following around the country, his style continues to be a perfect fit for a variety of venues
such as clubs, festivals, vineyards, restaurants, and corporate events.
