NEW VIDEO "AMNESIA"
Teddy Obot delivers his lyrics in the style of love letters over simple yet syncopated rhythms, a call back to his Nigerian heritage. Retelling his stories in a 3-way conversation between himself, his muse, and the audience, Teddy’s work seems to put every emotion, urge, and thought on full display. His music is personal as well as relatable.
“I love the challenge/reward relationship in music. I would almost say my desire to share good music with people is its own influence. Church music, gospel music, RnB, even Choir music… anything I’ve ever liked musically during my journey has been internalized and reimagined through my own lens. I want people to hear my music and think. Think about what I have to say. Think about how it applies to their lives.”
Teddy’s music sonically illustrates the wave of feelings that can rush over you during the important moments of life and transition, such as new/unrequited love or heartbreak. His songs speak directly to our understanding and past our logic.
