Over and Back Again - Digital Single

APPLE MUSIC  /  SPOTIFY  /  BANDCAMP

Consider It Correspondence and Hobo Nephews of Uncle Frank have released “Over and Back Again” as a digital single. “Over and Back Again” was originally released  as part of the Hobo Nephews 2015 album American Shuffle.

This simple, yet meaningful, ballad about the cyclical nature of life was almost lost in the pages of Ian Alexy’s notebook. “At first it was just a chorus without the rest of the song,” Ian Alexy said. “So I moved on to write other songs. Then months later, flipping through the pages, I found the chorus and wrote the rest of the song in a flash.”

One year after smashing a ceremonial guitar to bring the 20th Annual Homegrown to a close, Teague Alexy was all over the eight day long Festival in his adopted hometown of Duluth, Minnesota last week.

The first of Teague’s two official DHGF shows was alongside mandolinist Erik Berry to a sold out show at Cedar Lounge in Superior, WI. Teague and Erik played songs from their duo album Irish American alongside some Teague originals and a version of “Victory” by Erik’s band Trampled By Turtles.

Teague’s second #hgmf19 appearance was an early evening show with his band at Dr Robert Powless Cultural Center in downtown Duluth. The Duluth News Tribune recorded a version of Teague’s new, unreleased song “Captain.”

Teague closed out the final night of the festival singing and playing harmonica at The Rex with Jacob Mahon and The Salty Dogs. Two Jacob Mahon originals, Teague’s “Ol’ John Doe” and an encore of Parliament’s “Can You Get To That” closed a triumphant set.

Earlier in the week, Teague performed two unplugged morning shows at Duluth Coffee as part of Actual Wolf’s week long residency alongside Actual Wolf, Ian Alexy and Feeding Leroy, and joined ska band Woodblind for a lively version of Teague’s “Workingman’s Song” at Duluth Cider.

Teague Alexy debuted a new guitar and some new original material during an opening set for renowned singer/songwriter Haley Bonar at historic Glensheen Mansion in Duluth, MN.

 ”It’s a two-string cigar box style guitar built by Dave Lynas up on the hillside,” Teague told KUMD 103.3 Duluth after the show. “I met Dave at a jam session out in Holyoke and he invited me to come to his house in Duluth and try some of these strange guitars he was building. I didn’t know what to think of this one when I saw it, but I fell in love as soon as I put my hands on it. Even though I didn’t know how to play it, I could feel songs inside.”
