Georgia singer-songwriter Teddy Swims, a.k.a Jaten Dimsdale joins The Pivot Podcast for a conversation covering everything from his influential upbringing, music, relationships, and future as a global recording artist. Teddy Swims, an acronym for Someone Who Isn’t Me Sometimes, has created a niche in a saturated world of music by covering artists and now writing his own music.
Considered one of the hottest upcoming artists today, Ryan, Fred, and Channing dive into Teddy’s journey to this point and his transformation to stardom. Teddy opens up about his upbringing which he attributes to developing his chameleon soul. From being the grandson of a pentecostal preacher, a mother who loved southern country music, and a father who gravitated toward hip-hop and soul, music has always been boundaryless for Swims.
Discovering early on that football wasn’t in his future, Swims took a risk by pursuing music. Sampling and making covers caught the attention of many such as Meghan Trainor and Warner Records. Teddy shares that his new ways of life took time adjusting to due to his middle-class upbringing and insecurities. Still, in awe of where his voice instrument has taken him, Swims lets the guys know his only goal is to become the best at what he does.
Ryan, Channing, and Fred inquire about Teddy’s love for Michael Jackson which sparked a profound topic, black culture. Teddy goes on to pay homage to influential Black artists and states he’d never be in his position without Black culture. And of course, Teddy talks about his love for Black women which excites Channing the most.
