What to Expect
My shows are very interactive with lots of funny stories. I'm able to play just acoustic in a small living room or for hundreds of people in a large venue.
Teddy Goldstein is known as much for his clever songs - whether sensitive or comedic - as for his energetic and unpredictable shows. Originally from outside of Philadelphia, Teddy attended Boston University's theater program before moving on to Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts.
Teddy began writing songs inspired by artists like Jim Croce, James Taylor, Rickie Lee Jones and Elvis Costello. "My first performance was at my brother’s Bar-Mitzvah when I was three. I did 'Bad, Bad Leroy Brown', by Jim Croce. People went nuts and were all lifting each other up on chairs."
Teddy has since been a two-time finalist in the Telluride Troubadour songwriting competition, as well as the USA songwriting competition. His songs have also been placed in numerous network T.V. shows such as NBC's 'Meet My Folks', The WB's 'Everwood', 'Summerland' and 'Felicity', as well as ABC's Family Channel and NPR's 'Car Talk'.
Teddy mostly plays solo with just an acoustic guitar, although sometimes he performs with his band, 'The Goldsteins'. "Nothing says Rock & Roll like Goldstein."
Teddy has shared stages over the years with artists such as Marshall Crenshaw, Dan Bern, Todd Snider, Ellis Paul, Lucy Kaplansky and Steve Forbert.
These days Teddy lives in Weston, CT. with his wife and two kids.
Additional Booking Notes
For a small living room, I'm fine playing completely acoustic.
For a room that needs amplification, I need some way to plug in an XLR cable for my guitar and I need a vocal mic with a boom mic stand.
For plugged in gigs: A way to plug in an acoustic guitar / vocal mic / boom mic stand.
