Linda Thompson, Teddy's mother, is the executive producer.

CD reviews for Teddy Thompson

Upfront & Down Low CD review - Upfront & Down Low
The six-year gap between Teddy Thompson's first two albums - his eponymous 2000 debut and his 2006 sophomore release, "Separate Ways" - was more a result of scheduling than deliberation. In that span, Thompson coaxed his folk legend mother, Linda Thompson, into the studio after a 17-year hiatus and co-wrote and co-produced the brilliant "Fashionably Late," toured with his iconic folk father Richard Thompson and Roseanne Cash, and recorded not only his sophomore album but a »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Three years late(r), wait for Dickinson and Sisters of the Strawberry Moon was worth it – The album, "Solstice," coming out this Friday from Luther Dickinson and Sisters of the Strawberry Moon, took "only" three years to be released by New West. The recording sessions were an outgrowth of a few friends getting together and recording music. Those friends would be folks like Birds of Chicago and Amy Helm (on the album,... »»»
Concert Review: Guthrie brings welcome vibe of sweetness – Before launching into "This Land is Your Land," Arlo Guthrie recalled how his father taught him this song when he was just eight or nine. His father, however, wasn't just any father, but the father of protest folk music, Woody Guthrie. Then when Arlo's daughter, Sarah Lee Guthrie, took the stage midway through the first half of the... »»»

Some might say all you need to know about Over The Rhine is its primary lead vocalist, Karin Bergquist. And that's true; her angelic singing - alone throughout "Love & Revelation" - makes the album well worth your ear time. »»»
