Teddy Japs is an inspiring gospel artist and a prolific producer. Originally hailing from Jamaica, he now calls Canada his home. Eager to experience life from a new perspective, he made his move to Canada with anticipation, and after 10 years of worldly pursuits, he found his way to God and devoted his life to Jesus Christ. It was in Jamaica, as a teen, that he first began to sing and develop a love for music and performance. Once in Canada, Teddy continued to pursue his interest in music; he attended the Trebas Institute where he completed a Recording Arts and Sciences program and began to hone his skills as a professional singer. Currently, Teddy is working on his first gospel album which includes a collaboration with Amoy Levy. The album entitled D'Journey is an eclectic mix of gospel-reggae and is a personal testimony to the unending journey of life and the power of God. The album is co-produced with Dj Raji and will be released in summer 2008. A number of tracks have already been released in Jamaica amid popular acclaim. Among other collaborations, Teddy has also shared the stage with contemporary gospel singers Chevelle Franklyn and Sonya Sutton and has performed with Steadfast as the opening artist for gospel rapper T-Bone. Teddy Japs describes his music as "real and honest"; he knows about the struggles of life and he exposes his soul to his listeners. He is motivated by a desire to make music that is relatable and conveys a message of hope and deliverance. His wish to help others through his own experiences led to the production of a church play which mirrored his life's journey from troubled youth to a man of God. In his music, he finds peace and a sense of purpose and he believes sharing this love of music and his faith in God is the fulfillment of his ultimate destiny. The truth of his music will no doubt capture the attention, as well as the heart, of every listener. For bookings contact firstname.lastname@example.org 416-993-1939.
