About Teddy Swims

Teddy Swims’ soaring, sonorous howls defy both gravity and genre. Born Jaten Dimsdale in 1992 (outside Atlanta, GA), the singer-songwriter credits his father for introducing him to Al Green, but his influences have spread far and wide ever since. Before going viral in 2019 with showstopping covers of Michael Jackson and Shania Twain, Dimsdale was tackling alt-rock, hair metal, and soul in four different bands. He had also created the alias Teddy Swims as a hip-hop project. But upon releasing his 2020 major-label debut single, “Picky”, and later his heart-baring 2023 debut album, I’ve Tried Everything But Therapy (Part 1) (featuring the scorching hit “Lose Control”), the vocal powerhouse has used that versatility to sculpt his own soul-soaked, country-tinged, pop-conscious style—every bit of it highly emotionally charged. “I end up writing the same feeling down in as many ways and perspectives as I possibly can,” he told Apple Music—adding, with a laugh, “It’s my duty to hurt.”
