The Origin Story
Teddy was born in the 1990s, but we don’t know his exact date of birth.
Some reports say that he was born sometime in 1993.
We know that Teddy’s actual name is Jaten Dimsdale, and one of his grandfathers was a Pentecostal preacher.
He has a close relationship with his parents, Fred Robel and Glenn Robel, but we lack any more details than that.
Other than music, football is another passion of Teddy’s, a sport where his 6 ft, heavyset frame gave him a physical advantage, and earned him the nickname Teddy, probably short for teddy bear.
“My whole family is just football, football, football,” he said.
Teddy was also a prolific participator in musical theater during his school years, making his formative years more diverse than the average person.
Swims has always had a passion for music and singing, but before he reached celebrity status he worked as a waiter at a restaurant called Chilis.
During his waiting career, Teddy performed as a singer in several different bands covering a range of genres, including hardcore rock with bands Wildheart and Erris.
He was also pretty good at covering songs from the sixties and eighties in a couple of other bands he regularly performed with.
Teddy gained a big break when his producer friend, Addy Maxwell, invited him to rap in a SoundCloud song. The gig helped cement Teddy as a talented performer and earned him a position on a nationwide tour.
It was during this time that Jaten (Teddy) came up with his stage name using his nickname “Teddy” and adding the acronym “SWIMS,” which stands for someone who isn’t me sometimes.
In September 2020, he signed with WME (William Morris Endeavor Entertainment) for representation in all areas. He was previously repped by UTA.
In October 2020, Teddy released the single “Broke,” which “captures the journey that I’ve gone through over the last year.”
In May 2021, Swims released his debut EP “Unlearning.”
In April 2022, he released new single ‘Dose.’ “So excited to release this song to the world,” Teddy said.
Is Teddy Swims married?
Teddy is pretty private, but in 2016 he tweeted that he and his girlfriend had split.
His trajectory to fame had not happened yet, so there was very little fanfare about the event.
Some six years later, Teddy posted a Valentine’s tribute on Instagram to a woman named Nelly.
His girlfriend reciprocated with a message professing her love and indicating a decade-long romance.
When you put two and two together, it would seem Nelly and the breakup girlfriend of 2016 are one and the same. However, Teddy is not forthcoming about the details, so we cannot confirm his relationship status.
