|Music Industry Role(s):|
In early 2002, Ted signed with Galilee of the Nations Records, (Sony/BMG/Provident/Integrity) and debuted with "Zealous Over Zion". In 2005, Galilee of the Nations produced a collaborative effort with Joel Chernoff & Ted Pearce to revive messianic music pioneer group "Lamb". In the same year, Ted co-wrote the theme song for the new ministry of Promise Keepers founder, Coach Bill McCartney, called "Road to Jerusalem".
In 2006 he did his first tour of Europe and met Pastor Jobst Bittner of TOS Church Tubingen. This began an activist partnership of addressing historical Church anti-semitism around Europe through extended prayer walks called "March of Life". In 2009 Ted established March of Remembrance in Dallas TX, which is now an annual prayer walk held in more than 50 cities worldwide that seeks to honor Holocaust survivors and their descendants, while educating and engaging a new generation. These themes found their way into Ted's music and the powerful music video "The Forgotten People" was released at Dachau in 2007 on the "For Zion's Sake I Will Not Be Silent" CD.
In 2008, Ted collaborated with the German band "Beersheva" to release a 19-song album entitled "Hallelu Et Adonai" which included several songs co-written with friend, Rabbi Michael Stepakoff.
He followed that by producing "Battle For Zion", which featured the world-renowned guitarist Andy Timmons, drummer Dan Wojciechowski (Peter Frampton), Dan Castillo (Jonie Show on Daystar), Tom Demer (Dallas Symphony Orchestra), Liberated Wailing Wall (Jews for Jesus), and a few more notable musicians. Later that same year, Integrity label mate Paul Wilbur also recorded 2 of Ted's songs on his "Desert Rain" project in Israel.
In 2011, Ted produced his first independent project in a decade called "emergency" with Dallas Producer Phil York.
In August of 2012 the March of Life went to Poland, where Ted met Polish soul-singer and superstar Mietek Szczesniak, who introduced him to the unusually good fortune of working with Producer Wendy Waldman in California, which led to an opportunity to work with Polish Producer and Pianist-extraordinaire, Pawel Zarecki (and his incredibly talented wife, Jadzia) which led to working with the Longhouse Crew, which led to meeting and working with Israeli Producer/Guitarist/Singer Jamie Hilsden. Working with these friends in Warsaw, Hollywood, and Jerusalem was the inspiration and foundation of the Cultural Xchange Series recording sessions.
"Warsaw Sessions" was originally released in Tubingen Germany (March 2014) followed by Hollywood Sessions (Nov 2014) and Jerusalem Sessions (June 2015).
