About the artist

My name is Ted Stockton, some call me Teddy. I was born and raised an Iowa man with two moms. When I was 14 I picked up my first guitar, strapped it on my back and rode my bicycle to a local hangout called United Action for Youth in Iowa City, the town I grew up in. They had a room set up with a drum set, bass amp, and guitar amp, along with acoustic guitars in the main room of the building, and there were volunteers who would help teach, along with the other musicians who would come hang out and share their knowledge of music. During the summers I would do this every day, and learned a lot about what I love doing, which is playing music. Artists such as Slash from Guns n’ Roses, and Pantera’s Dimebag Darrell Abbott were my inspiration as a young guitarist, and as I grew older my influences changed and I found my voice. Most recently my music has been impacted by artists like Eric Church, Chris Stapleton and Granger Smith. I want my fans to be able to lose themselves in the music they hear from me, to be able to let go of stress and any negativity, I want people to physically feel good and happy with themselves, and their entire life in the very moment they are experiencing my music, as my goal in life is to help others. My late mother taught me that the most satisfying thing in life is working towards the end of human suffering, both physically and emotionally, and this is my part.

I've got two digitally released songs, Wild Tonight and Baby Will Ya. My first official music video was released December 13th for Wild Tonight, produced and recorded by Luminary Productions out of Des Moines, Iowa. The song is a tribute to the blue-collar workers to remember to let loose after those working hours and treat yourself to whatever makes you happy. The video takes place in the heart of Music City, Tennessee and really captures the outgoing atmosphere of downtown Nashville bringing out the fun in people. My first release, Baby Will Ya, I wrote for my wife and first dance at our wedding. The song really tugs on the heart strings and is a reminder that no matter what the past holds, it’s behind us for a reason and built the road that lead us to where we are today.

Lyrics

I get so jealous of your past sometimes
Wish those stories were about me
I forget that they didn’t last
And they brought you to me
Baby sometimes
I get so crazy thinkin bout all of the things I couldn’t give you first
Baby sometimes
I get so obsessed with being the best
I forget you love me at my worst

Baby will ya walk with me
And talk with me
Baby take a chance with me
And dance with me
Baby live your life with me
And try with me

Baby will ya
Baby will ya
Baby will ya

Baby you’re beautiful
You deserve to hear it everyday
Baby you’re the perfect girl
Perfect for me in every way
Baby I know
I can be a devil of a man
I try to make up for it every way I can
I know
Right now I can’t give you the world
Promise that I’ll always try to make you my girl

Baby will ya walk with me
And talk with me
Baby take a chance with me
Dance with me
Baby live your life with me
And try with me
Baby will ya
Baby will ya walk with me
And talk with me
Baby take a chance with me
And dance with me
Baby live your life with me
And try with me

Baby will ya
Oh Baby will ya
Baby will ya
Baby will ya
