Ted Leo And The Pharmacists Biography
Ted Leo is a unique artist for these times. He provides a near perfect combination of politics, art, punk values and humor in his songwriting and the combination is resonating with people all over the world. Having toiled for years in the punk underground with both his former band Chisel and his solo effort Ted Leo/Pharmacists, now is definitely the time that Ted Leo is primed to break out into the mainstream.
In February 2003, Lookout Records released the critically acclaimed Hearts Of Oak, a gem of a record that received accolades from Spin, Rolling Stone, Magnet, the New York Times, and MTV. Touring and promotion in support of Hearts… was massive and included five U.S. tours, a run in Japan and the U.K., and an appearance on Late Night With Conan O'Brien. A brief respite from touring was required midway through his second U.S. run when his vocal chords became enflamed due to the rigorous schedule of radio-station visits, in-store performances, and nightly gigs. A regimen of vocal warm-ups, fewer shows in a row, and a dram less Irish whisky was adopted and everything since has been in fine form.
In early 2004, in between some short tours, Ted began to write his fourth solo album. Motivated to keep pushing himself as a songwriter, performer, and cultural critic, he shut himself in the basement of his childhood home in New Jersey and began to write. The songs that resulted in Shake The Sheets are fresh, smart, and passionate. Me And Mia, Heart Problems, Little Dawn and the rest discuss personal, political, and societal ills in Leo's signature style: soulful but never preachy or heavy-handed. The message, as powerful as it is, is never greater than the music.
Ted's light touch and vast array of influences makes the pop perfect while the lyrics are searing and searching. Producer Chris Shaw proved to be the right partner for Ted and his sonic vision for the album. Well known for his work in producing the last two Bob Dylan albums, Shaw has also worked on many other diverse projects, from Dashboard Confessional to Bell Biv DeVoe to the classic Public Enemy album, It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back. Chris helped Ted develop and layer Shake The Sheets into what is certainly Ted's most sonically powerful album to date.
Ted Leo is an artist who is well poised for a career with no limits. He will continue to write pop-rock gems and work hard on the road to connect with his fans who continue to grow with him as he connects with more and more people. Do not be surprised if in 25 years you are dusting off your album jackets and along with Joe Jackson, Nick Lowe, and Paul Weller you throw on Ted Leo to change your mood for the day.
