Teddy Garcia has spent most of his life roaming the world - born in Liberia, grew up in Scotland, lived in Australia and travelled extensively through Asia, Europe, North America and the islands of Oceania.
Now settled in the creative crucible that is the South of France, he is happily married with two beautiful children, more animals than is strictly healthy or practical and a surprisingly healthy veggie patch.
Originally studying medicine, Teddy worked for 5 years as a doctor before branching into business consulting for a few years. But it was music that was always his main passion and it became an itch that had to be scratched. He now spend most of his time focussed on his music.
Teddy brings all his life experiences together, whether creating songs or performing live, resulting in an eclectic mix of acoustic blues songs but with elements of soul, funk, folk and even the occasional African rhythm thrown in.
An accomplished multi-instrumentalist Teddy performs all his own rhythm and lead guitar and can turn his hand to keyboards, blues harp and even a bit of violin.
Teddy sings from the heart and his warm, smooth voice delivers his rich lyrics with the feeling and gravitas they deserve. A keen observer of life, Teddy's songs touch on themes such as love, travel, loneliness - joy and sadness.
Teddy travels regularly to the UK, Canada, the USA and Australia for work and pleasure and always likes to collaborate with local artists when abroad.
Teddy is committed to a goal of releasing one album every year for the next 10 years, each one better than the last. Let's see if he can deliver on that promise - stay posted.
