Who Is Teddy Robb? The Story Behind His Journey to Country Music
Who is Teddy Robb? The singer-songwriter joined us to chat about his journey to country music. Get to know the rising star here…
Since we named Teddy Robb one of our 2019 Artists To Watch and featured him as a Swag Spotlight back in 2018, it seems he has blossomed into a rising star just before our eyes. Over the last couple of years, Robb has garnered a fanbase of loyal fans and continues to gain more and more momentum. Today, he released his highly anticipated self-titled debut EP.
Although the record features four previously released songs and only one new track, the EP is the perfect mix of songs to personify Robb’s talent, charisma, and personality. Beginning with the newest released single, “Me On You,” the country crooner sings about the power of love and its similarity to an addiction. The ambiguity within the lyrics is both enticing and captivating, everything a good song should be. The consistent drums only add to the stylized track.
The Turning Point:
Robb continues to showcase his brand of country music with a new track entitled “Good Love and Good Whiskey.” The flirtatious song is the perfect addition to the singer’s catalog. Robb compares good love to good alcohol in the new song. The feel-good track is begging for a catchy and clever music video to accompany it.
“What kinda fool leaves his top-shelf sitting on ice / Watch 90 proof lose its smooth / Baby that just ain’t right / Same kinda guy who brings his girl to the bar with guys like me around / Who knows good love and good whiskey ain’t good watered down”
Of course, the self-titled project also features the songs that put Robb on the map, including “Lead Me On,” “Tell Me How,” and “Really Shouldn’t Drink Around You.” The first is arguably one of the best on the project. “Lead Me On,” his debut single, is a song about a clever narrative in that push-pull type of relationship. Despite the repercussions, the gravitational pull is too strong to deny. In the same vein, “Really Shouldn’t Drink Around You” admits that drinking around an ex is not the best idea, but remains weak to that notion. Written by top wordsmiths, Shane McAnally, Trevor Rosen, and Joshua Osborne, the song is definitely a standout track.
“You say that we can be friends / But, hey, let’s be honest / There ain’t really no such thing / As gin and platonic”
On the other hand, “Tell Me How” is the lone, somber ballad off the project. A necessary departure from the other tunes, Robb lays his heart out on the line for fans, with his vocals, and with his songwriting. The break-up track explains how difficult coping with heartache can be, as Robb begs an ex to show him how to get over her. This song proves that the singer shines just as bright on emotive and intricate songs, and we hope for more songs like this one on a future full-length project.
