Watch Video Here
(June 26, 2020 – Toronto, ON) Today, singer-songwriter Tedy, releases a video for his latest track “War” stripped down version, via Sony Music Entertainment Canada Inc. “War” is the second major label single from the Montreal-based artist. Listen HERE. The video was filmed in the bare streets of downtown Toronto during quarantine.
This version of “War” was produced by Ben Nudds, further emphasized by the emotionally charged lyrics over piano played by Adrian Hogan. The original was produced by Herag Sanbalian and Mike Wise (Bülow, Ellie Goulding, Chainsmokers, Upshal).
“War” is a glimpse into Tedy’s past. It exposes his vulnerability as he explores the conflicting emotions felt towards the end of a toxic relationship, and emphasizes the importance of breaking free. Tedy explains, “ ‘War’ is about learning that no matter how much it hurts, you have to love yourself enough to get out of an environment that is toxic.”
Recently, Tedy has been busy building his Tik Tok following currently has amassed an impressive 769k+ followers since April, and 35 million likes, his Instagram has doubled, and his Spotify hit 242k followers.
Tedy is a 27-year-old Montreal-based artist, originally from Haiti. He is a soulful, alternative, rhythmic pop artist. The emotive singer’s musical style couples introspective song writing with a wide vocal range. There is an undercurrent of thoughtful and creative collaboration that runs through all of Tedy’s music. It’s the desire to make a connection, whether it’s between lyrics and melodies, or the reaction from the song to the listener. Tedy has always strived to have a meaningful response to all of his creative endeavours.
At the start of 2019, Tedy went into the studio to work on his major-label debut, continuing his sound and creative evolution. “The songs are pulled from my life,” says Tedy. “For me, writing songs is therapeutic.”
To that end, the first track from Tedy’s new body of work, “Stuck”, is a fitting launch to this new phase of his life. The infectious smile and warmth that are the essence of Tedy, are now juxtaposed with the stark and haunting music he makes – those sounds in Tedy’s head. “Stuck” is a powerful song co-produced by Mike Wise (Bulow, Ellie Goulding, Chainsmokers, Upshal) and Herag Sanbalian. It’s about sadness, depression and self-destruction. It underscores that despite whatever traumatic situation we have experienced, we need to accept the good and the dark side of ourselves in order to move forward.
Although this is his first major label debut, he is no stranger to creating and releasing music as an independent artist. With over 16M+ global Spotify streams, 242k monthly listeners and 1M+ YouTube subscribers across his music and video response channels, he already has fans eagerly awaiting new music. His previous singles “Can I”, released February 19, 2016, accumulated 3.6M+ worldwide streams on Spotify and “Hold on Tighter”, released July 27, 2018 has streamed over 1M+ worldwide on Spotify.
