Biography

Teddy Jr. and his band are one of the most electrifying, active and accomplished bands in Poland. When they played to 30,000 people at Krakow's main Market Square this past New Year's Eve, it was the culmination of a highly productive twelve months: a year which saw them record their third EP, reach the semi-final of Poland's most-watched talent show; and open for Peter Gabriel at Oswiecim's prestigious Life Festival.

Their raucous style of folk-grunge has seen them become a prominent fixture within Poland's emerging music scene. Teddy's lion's roar vocals and thrusting rhythm guitar are offset by the acoustic guidance of cellist Andy Baily, with various guest artists adding to their sound along the way. Legendary Polish rock-icon Kora commented: 'it is refreshing, you can feel the British spirit and this is something we are missing here in Poland.'
?
Drawing on influences from Eels to Daniel Johnston, Teddy Jr's songs are 'stories about my life, my loves and my frustrations with the world around me.' The contemplative, thoughtful, sometimes dark, lyrics are juxtaposed with euphoric rhythms and bright, flowing melodies. After a two-year stint playing and travelling throughout Western Europe, in 2011 the Rotterdam-born frontman Teddy Jr finally settled down in Poland's cultural heartland, Krakow, and formed the band. Since then, they have been cotinuously playing throughout Poland, periodically returning to their Krakowian base to the delight of local fans.
