In its premiere of the YehMe2 remix of “Eyes Closed,” Dancing Astronaut said, “YehMe2 has laid down a full-bodied and expansive remix of Ted When’s sultry track ‘Eyes Closed’…Beginning the track with distorted guitar chords that lead straight into When’s smooth vocals, YehMe2 then transitions into a harmonic and groovy jazz aesthetic.”
“Collaboration is in Fool’s Gold’s DNA,” note Fools Gold founders A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs. “The remix EP puts a FG spin on Ted’s unique voice and original songwriting, showcasing a wide range of sounds from the label’s friends and family with the anything-goes spirit of a handmade mixtape.”
Born in Cedar Rapids, Ted formerly fronted the acclaimed indie band Mansions on the Moon. The singer/songwriter/producer has toured with Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller and worked in the studio with The Neptunes. All of these elements and experiences inform his new, genre-defying sound. Ted built his own home studio in Nashville – and built this new phase of his creative life completely from scratch, no previous solo releases, no social media profile, just leading with the music. His history, though, comes out not only in the remarkable range of his sonics, but also in the heart of his writing. Wonderland hailed the “genre-defying singer” as s “superstar in the making.”
