What is most impressive about new, much sought after vocalist Teddy Houston is his uncanny
ability to reach people through his music. His unique delivery of soulful tunes like Could It Be? And Just Hangin On gently persuades the listeners to look inward and realize their deepest feelings.
The Port Arthur, Texas native grew up in a family in which music played an integral role. “My mother had eclectic taste in music.” This early exposure and its uplifting effect influenced Houston to take on an industry that is, at best difficult to break into. But this gifted baritone remains focused, and is as confident about his future as is his baritone crisp. His versatility is readily evident in his rendition of old school, contemporary, and gospel; sweetened with a twist of hip-hop flavor.
While music lovers familiar with his music compare him to the late great Barry White and Arthur Prysock, Houston remains grounded. “I am an optimist who wants to touch, uplift, and motivate people by communicating with them through music; the universal language”. His long awaited CD contains smooth ballads as well as infectious dance tracks, including the hard hitting Revolving Door, Let’s Dance, and You and I, and the alluring title cut, Are You Ready?
Houston and his brother John write and co-produce all their lyrics. He credits John with being the “core” of all his musical ventures. “John is my musical ambassador. He facilitates collaborations with other entertainers in the industry and is always thinking forward to our next project”.
Teddy Houston believes that we exist to encourage, affirm and serve one another. “God has commissioned us to do so and provided the tools with which to accomplish it. My tool is my music”.
