Bio

Teddy Faley is a 26 year old rapper/producer from Baltimore, MD. Having been a fan of both hip hop and alternative rock his whole life, and making his own music as a hobby since 1999, he decided in 2005 to try his hand as a career musician. Thanks to his talent for writing universally relatable lyrics, and creating a unique production style, his music has made Teddy Faley a name known to fans worldwide.

A songwriter of instinct, Teddy has a flair for writing emotions into open-ended metaphor's that connect with audiences in a way that the hip hop medium rarely does, leaving the listener moved by the raw emotion in them. Although his roots are firmly placed in the hip-hop & rock music that inspires him, he has truly made a sound all his own. "It tends to be structured a bit more naturally, or said better when i don't plan out what I'm putting on paper. What it usually end up being about is whatever happens to be interesting me at the time... Everything is an equal sign". It is that uniquely personal sound that landed his debut E.P. Apple Juice in thousands of CD players & Ipods in 2009, as well as several "Best of 2008" lists on numerous hip hop blogs & webzines.

Teddy started writing songs and recording them as a hobby at the age of 18: "Just rhyming for fun with my friends that initially got me started... Eventually I macgyver-rigged a mic to my old pc and started playing with recording my own tracks.", he says. But it wasn't until joining Brakefast Records as part of the label's original roster that he decided to pursue his passion as a career. For the next several years Teddy, and the other Brakefast artists, headlined sold out shows both at home in Baltimore, as well as venues in NYC, DE, NJ, & VA. In addition to headlining, Teddy also opened for artists like Ghostface Killah, Boot Camp Click, & many more. However, after being with Brakefast for two years Teddy left the label with the aim of starting his own, & along with fellow musician Cubbiebear, creating The Rape in 2008. "The label... is on the verge of becoming possibly the most influential face of the next generation of Baltimore hip hop." (The Baltimore Examiner - March 17, 2009)

Now living as a full-time musician, Teddy is sharing his time between running his own recording studio, performing shows all over the east coast, and continuing to make his own music. Based on the critical acclaim that Apple Juice earned him, and the buzz surrounding both The Rape & his forthcoming release "You Can't Un-Chop Trees", a collaboration with NY producer Joe Schaffer, Teddy's "everyman kind of self conscious style and undeniable stage presence" (Baltimore Examiner March 27, 2009) will continue propel his name into the heads of both hip hop & rock fans throughout the upcoming years.
