Are you ready for a new song to be obsessed with? TWIST is happy to exclusively premiere the music video for New York City-based singer-songwriter Teddy Edwards' latest single, "My Name."
"I wrote the song at the end of 2014 and it was recorded two summers ago in LA with producers Phredley Brown [music director for Selena Gomez & Bruno Mars] and George Pajon Jr. [guitarist and songwriter for the Black Eyed Peas]," Teddy tells TWIST about the track. "At the time, I hadn't been producing yet, so they really helped me find the direction I wanted to go with for the song. "
"It turned out having this 808, R&B, vibey feel to it," he adds, dishing on his process. "We played around with a lot of the stuff we found in the studio. The computer-click sound is actually a vibraslap with a short decay, which we messed with."
Teddy's new music video – featuring the artist at the piano – really brings the story to life.
"The video takes place throughout NYC," he shares. "The director, Chris Zino, is a magic man. I had some ideas for the story, and had found someone to star in the video. She's actually a friend of mine and was excited about acting in it, but was going out of town the next day. We ended up shooting it all in one day. Neither of us had acted before, but we just had fun with it and played it out."
The combination of the unique sound and cool video is really special, but you don't have to take our word for it! When you see it for yourself, we know you'll be hooked.
