Biography:
Since the early '90s, Ted Leo has been one of the most progressive forces in East Coast independent music, with a unique combination of punk and folk, soul and hardcore, and tradition and experimentation.

In the spring of 2000, Leo's sophomore effort, ‘Treble in Trouble’, was released on New Jersey-based Ace Fu Records, displaying a more aggressive and romantic bent to Leo's writing. In the early summer of 2001, Leo released a polished studio effort, ‘The Tyranny of Distance’, on Lookout Records. A strong contender for record of the year, it was followed by the equally strong ‘Hearts of Oak’ in 2003 ‘Shake the Sheets’ which appeared in 2004, would prove to be his last for then-troubled Lookout, as Leo signed with Chicago-based indie Touch and Go in February 2006.

Ted Leo and the Pharmacists eventually returned in March 2007 with full-length number five, ‘Living with the Living’. In 2009 Leo signed with Matador, and the following year he released his first record with them, ‘The Brutalist Bricks’.
