What we have for you here is an album of new songs by Thompsons written specifically for this project. It started with the idea of each of us recording two tracks and then we added my nephew Zak and my brother Jack each doing one. That got us to ten, which sounded about right.

Bella is a flat-out stunner, the work of a completely original songwriter and performer. Thompson’s voice is a bright, brash mixture of Thom Yorke, Roy Orbison, and Keith Urban, and that’s pretty much what the songs sound like, too. You can never rest easily on Bella—straight-up country rock rubs elbows with experimental folk and mild psychedelia.
Upfront & Down Low is the self-produced, third studio album by Teddy Thompson, released under Verve Forecast Records on July 17, 2007. The album features covers of some of his favorite country songs, along with one original track ("Down Low"). Six songs on the album include string arrangements by Robert Kirby, renowned for his work with Nick Drake.
Though Teddy Thompson's eponymous debut may hint at the folk-rock of his famous parents (Richard & Linda Thompson), in reality it's probably closer to the acoustic pop of an artist like Elliott Smith. Despite the unmistakable presence of his father's signature guitar work on about half of the songs, this is without question Teddy's record. With the help of producer Joe Henry, he delivers ten confident and smart folk-pop tunes filled with fetching hooks and engaging melodies perfectly suited to his warm, winsome voice.
