Biography

“Liquor Store” was created during what was supposed to be a short vacation in Sweden that turned into a 10-month therapeutic
writing and recording session. With the help of executive producer Jonas Nordelius and a team of talented producers, Teron
Beal channeled his life experiences and amazing vocal ability into what is now “Liquor Store”.

“I don't think I realy started taking this seriously until I was in the studio with Michael Jackson." Teron Beal

“I don’t know much Swedish. But I do know ‘en mer öl, tack’ means "one more beer, please," says Teron Beal as he imbibes the last portion of his first beer. Teron is sitting in an understated rock & roll bar in trendy Södermalm in southern Stockholm. Putting the finishing touches on a collectionof soon-to-be-released songs, Teron is spending quite a bit of
time in Sweden these days. If it seems a bit peculiar that an
accomplished R&B songwriter from rural Tyler, Texas would find
his way into the rock & roll bars and studios of Sweden’s economic and populous epicenter, consider the fact that Sweden is listed as one of the top three exporters of music in the world, along with USA and the UK. “I’d been back and forth to
Sweden working on songs for other artists with my Swedish
drinking buddies for a good minute, and somehow we ended
up with these joints, [songs] that just sounded like me, whatever
that is.” What that is is a hybrid of gospel/ R&B melodies and phrasing poignantly juxtaposed with distorted rock guitar riffs and
swishing percussion as Teron candidly examines his thoughts
and feelings. Musical juxtaposition is a documented talent of Teron’s, having already penned career defining gems for artists from Chrisette Michele, Bonnie Raitt and Mya to Jamie Cullum and Michael Jackson.
“I never used to think of making music as a career or anything. It’s
just a part of me being me, making it all up as I go along. I
don’t think I really started taking this seriously until I was in the
studio with Michael Jackson.” Teron says it wasn’t until he was
face to face with the famous gloved one himself that he realized, “Hey, I might be okay at this writing songs thing. Maybe
some folks will actually think I’ve got something interesting to say, in-between the beers”. Teron shrugs as he motions to the
bartender and says, “En mer öl, tack.

This album showcases elements from his musical influences and his unique personality. With a strong passion for all genres
of music, Teron is influenced by some of the greats such as Prince, Lenny Kravitz, Radiohead, The Beatles, and Pink Floyd.
Teron titled the album “Liquor Store” because, “a liquor store has all different wines and spirits, something for everyone, all
guaranteed to make u feel better once you taste it --or in this case hear it.”
Although, Teron is making his debut as a solo artist with “Liquor Store”, he is far from a newbie in the music industry. Teron is
an acclaimed songwriter having written chart-topping songs for the late great Michael Jackson, Jennifer Lopez, Mya, Robyn,
Jamie Cullum, Chrisette Michelle and many others.
The album’s first single, “Dance At My Funeral”, has been played on radio and MTV in France and many
countries around around the globe. The video is also in constant rotation on music video channels all over Europe.

Mya saw the video and sent this to Teron: “WOW WOW WOW!!! It’s a really really really dope video! And you know that’s one of
my FAVORITE songs that you’ve written from what I’ve heard so far. Very artsy, lots of movement, grimy, and with international
appeal!!!! Magazines and Tv shows are gonna come running! You are obviously in very good hands! Congrats!
