Ted grew up in Chicago, graduated from the University of Pennsylvania, and did his early performance work in theater in Philadelphia and New York. His singing resulted from requests to perform in musicals. But he soon used his more rock based influences to develop a musical style all his own. Ted's rich fusion of jazz, rock and americana create a sound he calls 'Ethereal Gypsy'. Drawing upon his talent as an actor and his highly imaginative writing style, one reviewer explains listening To Ted this way: 'you will find yourself in another world, following a story from beginning to end.' His debut EP "Madder Than Love" was released in 2013, and his follow-up full length album has finished production and is set to be released in 2014. In fact, he is already underway on production of two subsequent albums, one with his Jazz/ Soul band and the other with his more rock oriented band. He performs regularly at the House of Blues on the Sunset Strip and other LA venues.
