Biography

Teddy Goldstein is known as much for his clever songs - whether sensitive or comedic - as for his energetic and unpredictable shows. A master of both songwriting and theatrical timing, he keeps his performances fresh with hysterical ad-lib lyrics and improvised musical solos within the tight structure of his well-crafted songs. A two-time finalist in The Telluride Bluegrass Festival's National Troubadour Songwriting Competition and recent finalist in The USA Songwriting Competition, Teddy has garnered recognition for his songs while his regularly sold-out shows attest to the brilliance of his performances.
Originally from Philadelphia, he honed his comedic skills in Boston while studying Theater and Performing Arts at Boston University. His musicianship was later perfected at The Berklee College of Music.

Now a resident of New York City, Teddy plays at clubs, coffeehouses, and colleges nationally as a solo singer-songwriter, and locally, with his full band, which he jestfully calls "The Goldsteins." He also tours as part of the 5-person collaborative group, "Live From New York." A regular headliner at The Bitter End (NYC), The Living Room (NYC), Club Passim (Boston), and The Point (Philadelphia), he has also performed at The Bowery Ballroom (NYC), The Village Underground (NYC), The Fez (NYC), The Tin Angel (Philadelphia), The Emlen Theater (Upstate NY), The Towne Crier (Upstate NY), and The Kennedy Center (Washington, DC). He is proudest, however, of his sold-out solo debut at his grandfather's nursing home.

Teddy has shared stages with Marshall Crenshaw, Steve Forbert, Dan Bern, Ellis Paul, Melissa Ferrick, Kelly Joe Phelps, Lucy Kaplansky, Cliff Eberhardt, Catie Curtis, Willie Porter, Peter Mulvey, and Richard Shindell.

Recordings from his self-titled, independently released CD have been featured in independent films and on National Public Radio's "Car Talk".
His new CD, "The Love Lot", which is slated for release in August, 2002, was produced by Doug Petty (Shawn Colvin, Lullabies), Ethan Eubanks and Steve Walsh, and mixed by Kevin Killen (Peter Gabriel, So).
