Teddy Swims (born Jaten Dimsdale) is a lover. Merging honeyed soul with raucous rock energy and pleasing pop hooks, Swims writes nearly all his songs about falling in or out of romantic entanglements. “To me, that’s just all there is,” he says. “You’re either making love or crying about it.” With 800+ million global streams and a social following exceeding 10 million, Teddy’s songs of devotion have clearly connected. Part of reaching that audience, for him, is getting to show his love in person. Says Swims, there are always more new friends to bare his soul to: “I’m so excited to meet people and shake hands and hug necks.”
Rocketing to stardom in 2019 with a series of unmissable YouTube covers which saw him generate hundreds of millions of views and sign a deal with Warner Records, Swims garnered praise thanks to his incredible vocals and genre-defying originals, as heard on EPs Unlearning (2020), Tough Love (2022) and Sleep is Exhausting (2022). From soul to funk, gospel to country to R&B, it all comes back to that unbelievable voice, heard on tracks ‘Face Myself’ (with Elley Duhé), ‘Someone Who Loved Me’, ‘Love For A Minute’, ‘dose’, ‘911’, ‘Bed On Fire’, ‘Broke’ (ft. Grammy nominated superstar Thomas Rhett) and many more.
In the US, Swims has appeared on The Kelly Clarkson Show, Today, The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, Ellen, The Late Late Show With James Corden, and Jimmy Kimmel Live!, plus collaborated with Meghan Trainor, ILLENIUM, MK, and BURNS. In 2022, Swims went viral all over again thanks to his cover of the Journey classic “Don’t Stop Believin’” – 80 million views and counting, Journey founder Neal Schon appearing with Swims on US TV sensation America’s Got Talent.
These shows are a must-see, as Swims takes his show-stopping live show across the globe in 2023, showcasing his signature eclectic style on stage. Tickets on sale Monday!
