Cover Girl Presents: TEDDY GEIGER with special guests HILARY MCRAE and SCOTT HARRIS

Over the past year, there's been a grassroots buzz building in the Rochester, New York area surrounding rising singer-songwriter Teddy Geiger, a rapidly developing artist still in his teens. Teddy's soft-spoken charm, melodic gifts, way with words, and natural style have connected him to a steadily growing fanbase, which originated in local venues in his upstate New York and has since spread as far and wide as Florida and Hawaii. His independent regional EP release, "Stepladder" (on Cred Records) ranked at #1 in Rochester and made the Top 10 in Billboard's regional "Heatseekers" chart.

Teddy is a self-taught musician who, by the age of 8, was writing and arranging finished multi-part compositions on guitar and piano. By the time he got to high school, Teddy, too young to perform in local bars, was building an alternative following at the area's teen venues, performing the songs that seem to flow from his pen as instinctively as his fans--who'd begun calling themselves "Tedheads"--began pouring into all-ages gigs all over the upstate New York region to watch him perform. Teddy's fanbase demographic runs a wide gamut, from wide-eyed teenage girls to serious music fans hungry for something real.

Teddy wound up as a finalist on VH1's "In Search of the New Partridge Family," where he caught the ear of producer Billy Mann (Sting, Pink, Kelly Rowland, Jessica Simpson), who quickly became a champion of Teddy and his music, going on to collaborate with Teddy on several songs and act as producer for Underage Thinking, Teddy's debut album. "Teddy is a waterfall of talent," said Billy. "He is an amazing and prolific songwriter with a signature-sound, an incredible voice and a point-of-view that's informed and mature. I can't wait to see how his career unfolds."

Teddy is about to emerge in the forefront of today's musical scene and has been selected as an AOL "Breaker" artist and as an artist for the new ClearChannel online emerging artist initiative. The opening act on the summer's #1 pop tour with Hilary Duff, Teddy has also shared bills with Pete Yorn, Brandi Carlisle, Simple Plan, Fall Out Boy, Frankie J, Gavin DeGraw, Jesse McCartney, Kelly Clarkson, and The Click 5.

Teddy Geiger's grassroots buzz is rapidly becoming a roar.
