New Tunes: Teddy Thompson

This, my friends, is a fall in love at first listen type of tune. Teddy Thompson is the son of Richard and Linda Thompson – both well respected musicians in their own right. So Teddy comes from good stock.

“In My Arms” is beautiful, sunny harmonies, a killer B3 solo, a catchy hook… It’s got it all!

It’s June – summer has descended upon us north of the equator. So may I nominate “In My Arms” as a great kick-off-the-summer tune? I can? Good.

This is the first single from his new album, A Piece of What You Need, which comes out June 17th.
