Teddy Swims is a gentleman from Atlanta, Georgia, who rocks along, burly beard and has a plethora of sweet tattoos. While he may not be a household name quite yet, he’s undoubtedly on his way there.
The son of a preacher is making a name for himself with his marvelous online cover songs. It’s people like Teddy that make the phrase, “Don’t judge a book by its cover,” a cliche. Once you hear this man sing, you’ll be left speechless.
Recently, Swims covered Bonnie Raitt’s 90s hit song, “I Can’t Make You Love Me.” With a voice so delicate and gentle, he can bring just about anyone to tears. There’s a certain robust smokiness to his voice that sets Teddy apart from other covers of the classic tune.
As the performance goes on, it only gets better and better. His flawless vocals are full of soul and deep emotion. It makes you wonder if Swims has experienced heartbreak as the iconic 90s song speaks about. Either way, we can’t get enough of him.
