MAY 2014 RELEASE:
TEDDY & THE FUN TIME FRIENDS

Teddy Lee has been growing a steady fan base for the better part of 10 years. As his craft grows, so does the number of listeners who have come to identify with Teddy's sense of rustbelt observation lying underneath layers of simple, yet sadly beautiful melodies.

Intimate and lo-fi, these recordings show Teddy's reflective side; as he ponders the past, the present... and what's left to come. Ranging from beautiful to haunting and back, anyone familiar with the soul-bearing style of Teddy Lee will feel instantly at home with these arrangements.
