Teddy-James Driscoll has a somewhat split personality when it comes to his musical outlets and influences;
One night you might see the him in a dingy old metal bar sporting an Iron Monkey t-shirt banging his locks to the sounds of Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin or Pentagram but the next night you might see him with his acoustic guitar kicking back at an acoustic soul session, singing songs more reminiscent of his other musical influences such as John Butler, Ben Harper, Foy Vance and Ray Lamontagne.
The latter half of the spectrum, in this case, inspired him to pursue his passion for writing his own songs that expose a truly unique and soulful insight in his lyrical themes, catchy yet evocative guitar hooks and a soft and soulful voice that has left audiences inspired, moved and (in one case) in tears.
Having recorded a demo of one of his first songs ‘One Of Them Diamonds’ in 2008, which was recorded in one day by Himself and a lone engineer, TJD also showcased his talents as a multi-instrumentalist after laying down all the vocals, all the guitars and even percussion, bass and drums completely alone. Now currently studying a degree in Music Production, TJD hopes to further his skills as a musician and songwriter and will be hitting up the studio again very soon to bring you the next installment of his musical journey.
