Often compared to the funky, soulful jazz musicians such as Grant Green
and Eddie Harris
, you also hear artists such as The White Stripes and Beck influence his sound. His music is fresh, ever evolving, and lays out his immediate and unfiltered response to our society and times. Teddy is known for speaking his own language on the guitar. He's not flashy with in-your-face chops. He can own one note, and with that note, you know exactly what he means. Teddy plays for the moment, never repeating himself risking the falls to reach the musical highs. Teddy has shared the stage with other current guitar masters such as David Fuze" Fiuczynski, Fareed Haque
, and John Scofield
and performed at festivals such as the Saint Louis Jazz Festival and 10,000 Lakes Festival. The music of Teddy Presberg has another important characteristic: it is environmentally friendly. His touring is greenhouse gas free and endorsed by the eco-cool clothing company Nau. Teddy was also a part of the Keep it Simple Tour" which was co-sponsored by the town of Alta, UT, and the eco-friendly organic bar producer Clif Bar.
