Most know Teddy Thompson is the child of Richard and Linda Thompson (shoot out the lights). Talk about folk legacy, yet Teddy brings something additional to the table-a Rockabilly tremolo and old school pop chops. Richard Thompson is a guitarist and voice to be reckoned with. Do yourself a big favor and catch Richard Thompson live soon.
Teddy is an artist we should all know-for the tender sadness of his songs and his plaintive delivery. One listen and your heart is slain.
Some may suggest a bit of Chris Isaak and you would not be wrong yet on closer inspection one is convinced, his voice is his own.
And then we discover this beautiful rendition and tribute to Leonard Cohen. Always coming back to Leonard somehow. This is a masterful take on the classic, Tonight will be fine. Too good not to share.
