TEDY Releases Powerful New Single “Boys Don’t Cry”
Today, Sony Music Canada signee TEDY releases a new emotionally-charged single “Boys Don’t Cry.” The powerful track from the soulful Montreal singer-songwriter rides an expressive journey through feelings of fear, sadness, acceptance, and finally empowerment.
“Boys Don’t Cry” tells the tale of always having your guard up, showing no weakness, only to realize the strength in your own vulnerability. The track was produced by Mike Sonier (Noah Cyrus, The Weeknd, Julia Michaels, ABRA, Maggie Rogers) and co-written with David Charles Fischer (Bülow, renforshort, SHAED and Cheat Codes).
Recently, Tedy has been busy building his Tik Tok following and currently has amassed an impressive 810k followers and 37.7 million likes since April. His Instagram follower count has also doubled to 16k followers and his Spotify hit 242k followers.
Tedy is a 27-year-old soulful, alternative, rhythmic pop Montreal-based artist, originally from Haiti. The emotive singer’s musical style couples introspective song writing with a wide vocal range. There is an undercurrent of thoughtful and creative collaboration that runs through all of Tedy’s music. It’s the desire to make a connection, whether it’s between lyrics and melodies, or the reaction from the song to the listener. Tedy has always strived to have a meaningful response to all of his creative endeavours.
At the start of 2019, Tedy went into the studio to work on his major label debut, continuing his sound and creative evolution. “The songs are pulled from my life,” says Tedy. “For me, writing songs is therapeutic.”
To that end, the first track from Tedy’s new body of work, “Stuck”, is a fitting launch to this new phase of his life. The infectious smile and warmth that are the essence of Tedy are now juxtaposed with the stark and haunting music he makes – those sounds in Tedy’s head. “Stuck” is a powerful song co-produced by Mike Wise (Bulow, Ellie Goulding, Chainsmokers, Upshal) and Herag Sanbalian. It’s about sadness, depression and self-destruction. It underscores that despite whatever traumatic situation we have experienced, we need to accept the good and the dark side of ourselves in order to move forward.
Although this is his first major label debut, he is no stranger to creating and releasing music as an independent artist. With over 16M+ global Spotify streams, 242k monthly listeners and 1M+ YouTube subscribers across his music and video response channels, he already has fans eagerly awaiting new music. His previous singles “Can I”, released February 19, 2016, accumulated 3.6M+ worldwide streams on Spotify and “Hold on Tighter”, released July 27, 2018 has streamed over 1M+ worldwide on SpotiTweet
