Born and raised outside of Philadelphia, PA. (Haverford, Bryn Mawr), singer/songwriter Teddy Goldstein got his start in music by mostly performing for friends and family. "My first gig was at my brothers Bar Mitzvah when I was 3 years old. I did a cover version of Jim Croce's Bad Bad Leroy Brown and the place went nuts... people were lifting each other up on chairs."
After finishing high school at the Hun School (Princeton, New Jersey), Teddy studied theater at Boston University before leaving acting and heading to Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. While at Berklee, Teddy met his now good friend and drummer, Ethan Eubanks. Along with Ethan Eubanks (drums), Steve Walsh (guitar) and Richard Hammond (Bass), they formed the band, Teddy Goldstein and The Goldsteins. They released their self-titled CD, Teddy Goldstein in 1998. With the success of Teddy's debut album featuring songs such as Off-Road Automobile and All Men Are Liars, the band broke-up, but reunited a few months later. Since then, many great musicians have spent time performing as a "Goldstein". Whynot Jansveld, who has played bass in the band for the past few years says, "Being a member of the Goldsteins is almost like being a member of a gang, but not really."
In 2002, Teddy released his second CD titled, The Love Lot, which consisted of a lot of love songs. Shortly after the albums release, the song Lucky In Love was used on the NBC television show Meet My Folks. Since then, many T.V. shows have featured songs from the album including: Felicity, Everwood, Summerland, The Unit as well as NPR's Car Talk.
Teddy's third album (released 2004) is a Live CD. It captures the high energy and humor of Teddy's live show as well as taped phone conversations between Teddy and his grandfather, who often gives him (unsolicited) career advice.
In May of 2010 Teddy is releasing his first album under his band's name, Teddy Goldstein and The Goldsteins entitled Alright Is The New Fantastic. "It's good to have the band back together with many of the original members. It's hard to say if we'll tour - I think everyone right now is just hoping that the band does not break up." The songs Fully and Not The Real Thing have been licensed for the upcoming film, Cafe - starring Jennifer Love Hewitt and Jaime Kennedy.
