Long before he debuted on national network TV, Teddy discovered his love of drumming by banging on his mom's pots and pans at the age of three. The drummer grew up in the Gospel music scene of Chicago, Illinois, where he played in church for the first time at the age of four, and hasn't looked back since.
Relocating to California almost eleven years ago, Campbell, has become one of the hardest-working drummers in the business. His resume is so impressive that even he sometimes has a hard time believing how truly blessed he's been.
Teddy has served as musical director and drummer for pop stars Britney Spears Christina Aguilera & 98 Degrees (while at the peak of their careers). A few of his other musical director credits include Deborah Cox, Kelly Price, Mary Mary, and Ann Nesby (formally of Sounds Of Blackness). Teddy has also recorded with Stevie Wonder, Herbie Hancock, Rod Stewart, Al Jarreau, George Duke, Kirk Whalum, Kelly Clarkson and many others.
No stranger to life on the road, Teddy has toured with Stevie Wonder, Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears, The Backstreet Boys, Bette Midler, Queen Latifah, Maze featuring Frankie Beverly, George Benson, LSG (Gerald Levert, Keith Sweat, Johnny Gill)
Teddy has also been the in-house drummer for The Grammys, The NAACP Image Awards, The Essence Awards, The Billboard Awards, BET Awards, BET's Celebration Of Gospel (hosted by Steve Harvey), VH1 Disco Ball, VH1 Diva's Concert, and the VH1 Save The Music Concert.
Despite all of that work, Campbell still finds the time to stay true to his roots, fronting his own Gospel group, The Soul Seekers. "I'm the lead singer in the group, and Eric Seats is the drummer," Teddy explains. "I played drums on two of the studio tracks, "What Would You Do?" and "He'll Make A Way." Most of the record was recorded live at drummer/producer Nisan Stewart's dad's church. Nisan is in the group as well, 'though he doesn't play, he sings.'" The Soul Seekers won a 2006 Stellar Award for Quartet Group of the Year, the highest achievement you can receive in Gospel music.
Drummer, Musical Director, Singer… Teddy wears many hats, and there is no limit to what this talented musician can do.
