Teddy Thompson 

A Piece of What You Need


Teddy Thompson
A Piece of What You Need
(Verve)
Teddy Thompson's fourth release follows his country covers album, Up Front And Down Low, but this LP shows a sound and style that he can call his own. The best examples of Teddy's own sound are "Don't Know What I Was Thinking" and "In My Arms," which combines a great rhythm with a pop sensibility and his soaring vocals. There are touches of blues, rock and folk throughout the 11 songs (and a hidden track). He still has the lineage of his father's darker material in "Turning the Gun on Myself," but A Piece of What You Need shows Thompson has moved beyond the shadows of his parent's musical legacy.
