Teddy and the Rough Riders
The Nashville, TN natives have the unique ability to combine almost every genre, so I would not even single out their music as country rock. Ryan Jennings (Bass, vox), (Jack Quiggins – Guitar, vox), Luke Schneider (Pedal Steel), and Nick Swafford (Drums), have something special going on with Teddy and The Rough Riders and we are seeing that with their debut EP.
With any combination of country, rock, Americana/folk, psychedelic pop, and many others, Teddy and The Rough Riders debut is a 6 song EP containing a myriad of sounds. From the slow melody of “Martini”, to the swinging alternative country rock sounding “Buckle Bunny”, this EP is an endless musical kaleidoscope.
Teddy and The Rough Riders may get their name from Theodore Roosevelt, and they might be reminiscent of Grateful Dead, but they are making a name for themselves with this EP and their awesome hodgepodge of sounds and influences.
