Ted is a singer, songwriter and a tribute artist. He was born in Seattle and raised in the Olympia area. He has been performing from the age of ten throughout his school years in concert, symphonic and jazz bands while developing his talents as a drummer and singer.
In 2006 he went on to Laughlin, NV to compete in the Talent Quest 2006 involving 28 states, New Zealand, Australia and Canada taking first place. He then went on to win Komo TV 4’s NW Afternoon Celebrity Look Alike contest. Ted now performs nationwide for all kinds of venues and events. He has wowed the crowd selling out theatres in Pennsylvania and Kansas and has played twice now for John Denvers own “Windstar Foundation” in Aspen, CO. Ted cruised the Caribbean with Darryl Worle0 y and Jimmy Wayne on a “Travelin’ Inc. country cruise hosted by Great American Countrys’ own Storme Warren. Last year Ted was awarded the Rising Legend Award by the National Traditional Country Music Association.
Ted will be performing with Steve Weisberg, John Denver’s lead guitar player and co-writer from the 1970’s. Steve – who also performs solo shows of his original material and the Denver hits, is quoted as saying; “Apparently the audience thinks these cover artists all look and sound like John. I don’t see it. However, I see it with Ted. A very strong physical resemblance… Uncanny!” (King 5 Eve News Magazine clip) The most heard comments after any show is, “I can’t believe how much he looks and sounds like John Denver! It really took us back!”
This performance will benefit programs of SECOND HARVEST OF EAST TENNESSEE. Patrons are asked to bring nonperishable food items for collection at the show. With each item donated, a patron will receive a chance to win a special prize package put together by local businesses who also believe in the good work of 2nd Harvest.
