From Pop, to Rock, to R&B, to Country and Musical Theater, Teddy Stevens loves playing the bass. Inspired by his father and a blooming interest in pop music, he picked up the bass at the age of thirteen and has remained glued to the instrument ever since.  While attending The Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama from 2007-2011 Teddy led his own rock trio Citizen Radio, performing in the pubs of Glasgow.  Upon his return to hometown Louisville, KY, (2011-2015) he was first call session bass player at Downtown Recording playing bass, guitar and keyboards on a wide variety of sessions for musical artists, commercial clients, and backing tracks for musical theater, among others.  During his time in Louisville he led another power trio performing his own compositions, as a guitar player, recording for Sonablast Records.

Teddy moved to Nashville in 2015 and has been working steadily as a freelance bass player. Notable gigs include two regional tours with Normaltown Recording Artist White Violet, playing in the house band for JoCo Presents at Mercy Lounge, and a performance in the Nashville House at SXSW in 2017. He can often be seen in town backing up Pop, Rock, Country and R&B singers such as Michael McQuaid, Manrelic, Brasko, Rose Rodriguez, and more. In 2017 Teddy returned to Louisville for a two week run of “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” where he played bass, acoustic guitar, and sang backup vocals.

In 2018 Teddy joined CMT artist Ashley Wineland on her "Simple Life National Tour." From March to July the tour visited 17 states and over 30 venues. 

I believe in a relaxed and fun teaching style. Music is magical, learning how to play music isn't. That's why it's important to learn a functional foundation on the bass with  an enjoyable and easy to follow pace.
