     Teague holds the quite original distinction of being a young and clever trailblazer in the current roots music revival in Minnesota alongside status as a local legend making primitive, old school hip-hop as a South Jersey Shore teenager. That's just the beginning. Teague's album The New Folklore (featuring Nicholas David piano/vocals) was an impressive foray into the art of storytelling in song garnering four nominations at the 2009 Just Plain Folks Awards in Nashville, TN with 'A Good Clean High (off a dirt cheap bottle of wine)' taking home a Best Song Award. Teague also makes up half the foot-stomping roots music outfit Hobo Nephews of Uncle Frank alongside his brother Ian Thomas. Star Tribune called Hobo Nephews' new album Number One Contender "easily one of the best Minnesota-made albums of the year." The Weekly Reader calls Teague “a potential great new American voice. The gift of painting pictures with words is a unique one, and this man is truly blessed.”
     While The New Folklore dealt mostly outside of time, place and often reality, Teague's new album This Dance is a gut-examination of a romantic in a very real world. A rootsy singer/songwriter album with emotional and poetic depth razor-sharpened by producer Erik Koskinen. The specific strains of a distinct mix of musical influences continue to fade as Teague paints a growing picture of an original artist.


"Teague Alexy steps out as a buzzworthy singer/songwriter on his CD The New Folklore"
-MINNEAPOLIS STAR TRIBUNE - Chris Riemenschneider

"Records this good--so engaging, defined by groove, and full of thoughtful words and sounds--are rare."

(New Folklore review) 

“In the turmoil of 2008, we can use all the genuine teagues we can find.”

“4 Stars!!…I’ll be damned if they haven’t written some of the most beautiful and captivating songs I have heard in a long time"
-VAIL DAILY (Hobo Nephews Sing! review)

“The New Folklore is a shining hour for the local scene and independent music all together....Not to disregard a thousand-odd songwriters but Alexy's words are just more interesting than most trying to make a living today”

“noticeably strong songwriting skills and a velvet voice accenting his infectious grooves.  You may have not yet heard about Teague Alexy. Chances are you will very soon.”

“Alexy’s patented blend is unduplicated anywhere else, though considering how infectious it is, expect to see imitators cropping up soon. But for now, here’s the original.”
