With his vintage country voice & narrative lyrics, Alex Teller creates music that’s as honest & emotional as the artist himself. Born in Florida, and raised in the suburbs of Long Island New York, Alex moved to Michigan at 19 where he found a jackpot of traditional songs through his deep love for Jerry Garcia & the music of The Grateful Dead. Teller soon started a solo career playing shows & began diving deep into traditional Folk music & the sounds that inspired him the most. Endless nights studying & transcribing the works of writers like Bob Dylan, John Prine & Townes Van Zandt turned into a whole new wave of inspiration & songwriting. At the age of 25, Teller received his first driver’s license after a lifelong fear of the road, changing his life & music career entirely. Alex Teller now follows the rambling ways of his troubadour heroes, touring the country, sharing songs everywhere he can, while filling the hearts & souls of many, one song at a time.
Alex released his debut self-titled EP, “Alex Teller” in January of 2023. The album consists of four original songs, drawing sounds from traditional American songwriters such as Guy Clark, Townes Van Zandt, and Willie Nelson, in both a nostalgic & fresh way. Produced by the artist himself, “Alex Teller” expresses a tasteful classic tone, fitting for an artist whose roots drink from the deep well of America’s traditional folk music & the lore of storytelling. While shaping & molding the album, Teller collaborated with an all-star lineup of Michigan music legends (including Peter Madcat Ruth, Drew Howard, Bill Fuller, Dutcher Snedeker, John Nowak, and Taylor Watson), adding brilliant color & texture to each of his heartfelt songs.
