Teddy Swims: Tough Love World Tour

Teddy Swims Clarke University

2022 Tour Stop at Clarke University – Thursday, January 27


After dedicating his life to music, Teddy Swims—a.k.a. Atlanta native Jaten Dimsdale—unassumingly knocked on the door of stardom and claimed the payoff of a decades-long grind in 2019. Broadcasting covers from a bedroom studio, he lit up YouTube with hundreds of millions of views and a following of nearly 2 million subscribers. Teddy fashioned a show-stopping signature style out of soaring soul, intimate R&B, rock energy, and hip-hop swagger all uplifted by his earthquaking vocals. Leaving tastemakers such as American Songwriter, Billboard, Flaunt, and Idolator and idols like Shania Twain speechless, Rolling Stone christened him a 2021 “Artist To Watch.” During this time, he went from singing to a smartphone camera to serenading America on The Kelly Clarkson Show and The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Teddy continues to spread his wings, unveiling his 2021 debut graphic novel, “Teddy Swims: Swimmy and the Valley of the Last Song and hitting the road with Zac Brown Band for a series of stadium gigs. Ultimately, he took all of the lessons from a life-changing year and distilled them in his 2021 debut EP, “Unlearning.”

“I hope I can fully capture the human experience. I want my music to touch as many emotions as it can. I’m still just the same little anxiety-riddled chubby kid with a dream to be the biggest superstar in the world”
