Teddy Presberg

Music rooted in improvisation, inspired by the moment and the audience.

Composer - Producer - Studio Guitarist - Eductator

Teddy Presberg’s music is an experimental mash of soul, funk, and rock n’roll - a blend of sounds described as shoegaze jazz. His live shows are rooted in improvisation, inspired by the moment and the audience. Often compared to the funky, soulful jazz musicians Grant Green and Eddie Harris, you also hear artists such as Jack White and Beck influence his sound. His music is fresh, ever evolving, and lays out his immediate and unfiltered response to our society and times (check out his Apocalypse Yesterday EP).
