This session can be watched on demand now:
American singer-songwriter Teddy Swims will deliver an exclusive set from his home as part of the Royal Albert Home sessions.
In these strange times, closing the Hall’s doors is the best way to look after the world, but we are now opening a (virtual) window for you to experience some of the most talented artists around.
Teddy made a name for himself online thanks to his uniquely soulful style and R&B covers, bringing his own flavor and delivery to classic songs. His cover of Bonnie Raitt’s 1991 song I Can’t Make You Love Me for example showcases both his low, smoky register and soaring, powerful vocals. Since the clip was uploaded last September, it has been viewed over twelve million times on YouTube — and the view count is still growing.
Originally from Atlanta, Georgia, Jaten Dimsdale, known by his moniker Teddy Swims (which stands for Someone Who Isn’t Me Sometimes), first toured the US as a hip-hop artist in early 2019 with his best friend Addy Maxwell before expanding into uncharted territory by blending the various genres he loves.
We are thrilled to present such a unique artist for the first time at the Hall as part of our exclusive series of online shows.
