Producer, Singer, Songwriter Teigen Gayse hails from the picturesque small town of Chetwin BC.
As a little girl she was Olympic bound as a professional figure skater. Then, at the age of 13 she picked up her first guitar. It wasn’t long before song-writing became a passion. It was the ability to tell her own story, in her own words, that began Teigen’s love for country music. That desire to create pushed her to get an audio engineering degree before striking out on her own as a full-time musician.
“I’ve always been fascinated with the writers — wanting to know who created the song,” she explained.
That desire to create has continued to be fed by trips to Nashville, as well as co-writes with several industry veterans, including Chad Kroeger, Gordie Samson, Jeff Trott, Dylan Guthro, Emma Lee Doty, Baker Grissom, Phil Barton, Patricia Conroy, Andrew Allen, Dave Faber, David Thompson and Buddy Owen just to name a few.
“There is no better feeling than getting to perform something I wrote in front of my fans – its the connection with them that pushes me to work hard.”
Teigen has been selected as a finalist in SiriusXM Top of the Country and will be performing during CCMA week!
Her highly anticipated new single “Sleeping with her” hits radio on August 30 2023. It was produced by Dan Swimimer and co-written with Gordie Samson, Dylan Guthro and Baker Grissom.
Single “If You Show Me Yours” produced and co-written with Chad Kroeger was Top 30 at Country Radio. She was IHeart Radio’s ”Future Star” and Rogers “One To Watch”. The single has almost 2 Million Streams. She was the cover of Apple Music’s Canada’s Country. Teigen completed a cross country promo tour which included appearances on ET Canada, ETalk, The Morning Show, BT, CTV and Global.
With millions of Catalog streams to date and over 48 million Tik Tok views, Teigen came to the forefront of artists to watch. Her single “I Don’t Need A Boy” won Break out Artist for Acadia Broadcasting. The single went Top 50 at Country Radio with over 1.65 Million streams and an impressive 44 Million Tik Tok Views. Single “Messed Up” has surpassed 1 million streams on its own, while her 2021 single “I Don’t Wanna Fall In Love Anymore” has almost 3 Million TikTok views. It took home the honour of Trending Track from Stingray Radio hitting #43 on the Billboard Country Music charts, and amassing over 350,000 streams.
You can find Teigen out on the road this summer at Boots and Hearts, Lasso, CMA Festival, Cavendish Beach Festival, Calgary Stampede, Nevan Fair, Truck Stop, 97 South and on tour with Gord Bamford and Tim Hicks with more announcements to come!
