A small town girl with a big voice and an even bigger message There’s no better way to describe the power of BC-born producer/singer/songwriter Teigen Gayse.
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, Baker Grissom, Phil Barton, Patricia Conroy, 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 – it’s the connection with them that pushes me to work hard.”
Teigen’s highly anticipated single “If You Show Me Yours” produced and co-written with Chad Kroeger will be coming out March 10, 2023.
With millions of Catalog streams to date and over 40 million Tik Tok views, Teigen came to the forefront of artists to watch with her single “Messed Up”. It has surpassed 700K 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. Follow up single “Blame the Wine” reached #46 on the Billboard charts.
Most recently, Teigen released her single “I Don’t Need A Boy” and won Break out Artist for Acadia Broadcasting. The single is Top 50 at Country Radio with 600,000 Streams, and an impressive 31.5 Million views on TikTok.
You can find Teigen out on the road this summer at Boots and Hearts and Cavendish Beach Festival with more announcements to come!
