bio

After serving 30 years as Aretha Franklin's guitarist, Teddy Richards has emerged as a gifted 

singer/songwriter/guitarist/producer.

He's been hailed by the press as 'a brilliant cross-section between Seal and Lenny Kravitz, with the voice of an angel'.  Additionally, Teddy is a Michigan State University graduate with a musical career spanning more than two decades, his rich musical experience also includes serving as guitarist for Al Green, Natalie Cole, Ashford and Simpson and Joe Cocker at Nelson Mandela's Freedom Fest,  serving as opening act for Seal, Lenny Kravitz, INXS, The Verve Pipe and A.J. Croce.  Teddy has collaborated and written with Andrew Farriss (INXS),

Gabriel Gordon (Natalie Merchant’s guitarist) and Carlos Alomar (David Bowie guitarist and co-writer of the hit ‘Fame’) and Marcy Levy (co-writer of Eric Clapton's 'Lay Down Sally') and served as guitarist for Nellie Furtado, Natalie Cole, Joe Cocker and 

Al Green.  he has also written, recorded and and produced music extensively for CBS Sunday Football and Folgers Coffee. 

After signing as a recording artist with Germany's Skip Records and released his 2nd CD Gravity, Teddy enjoyed many successful tours throughout Germany and Spain, culminating with his performance at Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland.  Teddy has since returned to the states, performing solo-acoustically. His ‘Sunset Serenade’  is an eclectic genre-defying experience, filled with crowd favorites and memories spanning the spectrum of popular music. He is currently recording and producing his 3rd release 'Solitaire', due for release in 2023.
