At the age of 18 Thompson moved to Los Angeles to pursue his music career. In 2000 he released his debut album Teddy Thompson. The album received much critical acclaim, but achieved little commercial success. During the time between his debut album and follow up he released the moderately successful Blunderbuss EP, and toured as part of Rosanne Cash's band.
In 2005 Thompson released his second long player, Separate Ways. The album has a strong second-generation artist theme, with Rufus and Martha Wainwright featuring, who are close friends of Thompson. He has toured and recorded with both the Wainwright siblings, including on Rufus' 2003 album Want One. They also recorded a version of "King of the Road" for the 2005 film Brokeback Mountain. Thompson also contributed a solo track for the film. Maria Muldaur's daughter Jenni Muldaur also features.
