Interview – Teddy Clarke
Rock At Night recently discovered Teddy Clarke and his band at the Water Rats, London. With the combination of a retro and alt rock sound, the melodies are infectious and catching, leaving a lasting impression long after the song is over.
We spoke with Teddy Clarke,who hails from North London, about his musical journey, which essentially was hatched during COVID lockdown. In this interview, Clarke discusses his retro look (very Teddy Boy), songwriting during COVID, collaborating with Ben Bogen, songwriter/mixer of Analog & Digital, the formation of the live band, his background in theatre, growing up in London with the wealth of musicians and venues, his video making with a Super 8, performing on BBC Introducing, and plans for the future.
Look for his EP later this year and gigs outside of London. And, Rock At Night will feature an additional article about him in our upcoming Fall print issue.
