Teague Alexy's music is deeply rooted in Americana after touring the country a few times with brother Ian in their foot-stomping band Hobo Nephews of Uncle Frank. If you listen close to the swing of Teague's voice, guitar and harmonica you can hear he has not completely forgotten his young days as a reggae and funk obsessed hip hop DJ. It is a toe-tapping backdrop for a profound American writer and storyteller.
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. Teague's previous album The New Folklore (featuring Nicholas David on piano and vocals) was an impressive foray into the art of storytelling in song. New Folklore gathered 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. Star Tribune called Hobo Nephews' new album Number One Contender "easily one of the best Minnesota-made albums of 2013." 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.” Teague's esoteric mix of musical and literary influences continue to fade into the emergence of an original American artist.
