new (free) music & HD videos

pigWar

One of my newest projects, pigWar, is based in Portland and is getting ready to finish up an EP we recorded at my place last Summer.  We're releasing the first track today and it's called "Give It Up."

Check it out here.

It's a Teddy P production, but includes lyrics from Garett Brennan, vocals from Nick Savage, drums by Kyle Honeycutt, and LeClare Stevenson on piano, organ, clavinet, and bass!


Outcries from a Sea of Red FIRESALE!

Just when I thought I'd reached the end of my first run printing of the Outcries album, I found a box full of these little funkers!  So, I'm hooking it up at $5/copy which includes shipping and handling for US delivery.

Outcries from a Sea of Red - $5

New LIVE FU*K MONSTER Videos

Former bassist from the Teddy P Funket and friend of the family, Shlomo Ovadya, recently launched a pretty darn impressive YouTube channel called Fearless Free.  They recently filmed the last FU*K MONSTER show and it's in glorious HD.  Check it out:

Not everyone liked the Beatles

This one goes out to all of the songwriters and artists out there.  Whether you are just getting into putting your original music out there for people to listen to, or you have been doing it your whole life, you gotta let other people's words roll off your shoulders like the rain.

A lot of us make art and music for others to enjoy.  So it's only natural that we publish our music online for others to see and hear.  These days it's so easy to do... almost too easy (but that's another blog post!).

Our art is often a very personal thing and it's tough to see the eventual criticism or negative feedback you will receive from putting yourself out there.  I learned very early on how to deal with this and here is my internal mantra:

"Not everyone liked the Beatles, and not everyone will like you!"


image from http://bit.ly/198Y4gh
















The Beatles are arguable one of the most popular bands of all time, and still there are people who think they are boring and suck!  So, what makes you think that everyone will enjoy what you put out?  If you happen to stumble upon a negative review, just let it roll off your shoulders like the rain and move on.  Keep making music and art and don't let anyone's negativity get in the way of your goals. 

I'm not saying to prepare for a negative onslaught when you put yourself out there.  I'm saying that the more you put yourself out there, the more love you will get but you will also receive the negative from time-to-time too.  Don't take it personally.... not everybody liked the Beatles!

music club - one album left!

dearest music clubbers!

as most of you know, i've moved from Saint Louis to the west coast.  i'm now settling back into Portland, OR and loving it!  my studio is all packed up and i won't be getting to it until early spring.  most of you will be getting a CD in the mail of all the music club songs, now that all 24 songs have been released. 

it's gonna be some time until i can polish all of the songs, design an album, and mail them to you.  but it will be worth it and in the meantime, if you'd like a digital copy of any of my albums, go ahead and pick one and i'll hook you up.

let me know if you have any questions!

FU*K MONSTER meets Bernie Worrell/Steve Kimock - May 20th

Catch a rare appearance of my latest all original project, FU*K MONSTER, this Sunday as we open for Steve Kimock and Bernie Worrell at the Old Rock House.  The MONSTER plays all original new wave heavy groove synth, guitar fuzz rock.  Kimock is a great guitarist I use to see all the time when I lived on the Left Coast.  He's got a great flow and comes from the "Jerry" School of playing for all you deadheads.  And if I had to vote for the most innovative musician alive, it would be Bernie Worrell.  'Nuff said!

Music Club Is Almost Ready To Launch!

Only a few weeks left until we launch in 2012!

One of the best parts of this club is that I will be sending everyone two songs per month. I plan on sending a song to members on the 1st and 3rd Mondays of the month (because Mondays can be boring otherwise).  
I just got back from a three-night recording session in the woods with my organ trio.  We knocked out the Led Zeppelin EP, and a handful of other songs for the Music Club!  Everything sounded real good bouncing of the A-Frame and across the lakes.


Unfortunately, the keystone piece of equipment for my studio rig blew up on the last night!  So, I'm yet to do any overdubs on those sessions.  I should be back up and running soon and plan on staying on schedule! 

My website (www.teddypresberg.com) will also be updated soon with info on the Music Club and how others can join.  I'll make sure to reach out when that happens.  Please share thoughts on how I can setup a rewards system for you to refer friends to the club!

I plan on utilizing this blog more regularly in 2012 to keep everyone interested in the songwriting process, musicality, production, design process, music biz, etc.

If you have not signed up to my email list, please do show by clicking this link:  http://www.reverbnation.com/page_object/join_mailing_list/artist_270875.  You'll get supplemental info not on this blog, including information on shows in your area.
