Teddyson John known as Teddy or TJ to his friends and family, has been wowing audiences since, “before his feet could even touch the peddles of the drum set”. Teddyson admits that neither his mother nor father is musically inclined yet he and his two brothers, “seemed to have gotten it from somewhere”. His brothers, Francis John is the founder of the band, Blue Mango and Hervin John has his own band on the cruise ship line, Royal Caribbean.
Teddyson’s first recording was a song called ‘Sweeter’. We know you’re thinking ‘it must have been a soca’, but believe it or not, it is a gospel song as Teddyson actually started off singing and performing in church. This song was recorded at the legendary Den Studio.
He is no stranger to the stage! His performing experience however stems from his school days when he attended Sir Ira Simmons Secondary School, participating in events such as Mr. & Ms. Teen Talent and Mr. & Ms. Valentine. It is those early performances that paved the way for him to shine bright at the Groovy Soca Monarch and Power Soca Monarch competitions leading him to have won the crown twice of the four times he has entered since 2007.
There are two sides to Teddyson, a Soca side and a Jazz side. This diversity has allowed him to perform all over the world, including Miami, New York, Toronto, Los Angeles, Barbados, Martinique, Cayenne, Paris and of course his home, Saint Lucia. Teddyson has also performed with world famous artiste Patti LaBelle and the likes of James Ingram, Bebe Winans, and Brick & Lace. He has also been afforded the opportunity to open for Destra and Machel Montano.
