About

Georgia singer-songwriter known for his earthquaking vocals

Get the album Unlearning here

Born and raised in Atlanta as a pastor’s grandson, Jaten Dimsdale played American football and was involved in musical theatre while in high school. In addition, he joined bands of different genres, performing everything from hip hop, soul and funk to country and rock. Before long, he’d built a reputation for his soaring vocals and swaggering style.

In early 2019, Dimsdale started uploading videos to YouTube from his makeshift bedroom studio under the name Teddy Swims. They were usually covers of artists he admired like H.E.R. and George Strait. After releasing a cover of Michael Jackson’s Rock With You that summer, his social media following skyrocketed and Dimsdale was signed to Warner Records.

By 2020, he’d gone from covering his idols to performing his own original music. A prolific writer, Teddy Swims penned nearly 300 songs, first gaining traction with the track Broke featuring Thomas Rhett. He did also issue a cover Marvin Gaye’s What’s Going On and contributed the earnings to the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund.

Named by Rolling Stone to their 2021 Artists To Watch list, Teddy Swims took inspiration from all the lessons he’d learned over the preceding year, through the challenges of the unprecedented coronavirus pandemic, and began recording his debut EP Unlearning. He released the tracks My Bad and ’Til I Change Your Mind in advance of its arrival in May 2021 and then spent the summer providing support for the Zac Brown Band during their Comeback Tour stadium shows.

In September 2021, Teddy Swims unveiled Bed On Fire with Ingrid Andress and announced a UK tour for February 2022.
