Teddy Presberg (born November 20, 1979) is an American guitarist, composer and bandleader.
First coming to prominence as a sideman on Garett Brennan's Keep It Simple / Clif Bar Tour in 2005, Presberg has since recorded 3 solo albums and enjoys a cult following. His debut album "Blueprint of Soul" was released by Ropeadope Records in 2007. Presberg is known for his improvisation compositional technique- a method of composing music in one-take and on the spot; and which he attributes to his study of Jack Kerouac. KDHX describes Presberg's guitar technique as "Like a storyteller, he spins effortless yarns written in jazz and punctuated with funk, calling for his listeners to follow him on his journey. Fresh and fluid yet rooted and evocative, his music simply tries to say what he feels must be said."
Opening for George Clinton at the Crystal Ballroom:
This video put me in a better mood this morning, so I am sharing Teddy's guitar solo opening for George Clinton on March 13, 2013!
Incidentally, Mr. Teddy Presberg sent me his first album "Blueprint of Soul" and of course it was in rotation in Funk Sanctum because we love his sound. Teddy is one of the artists who actually was listening to Funk Sanctum Radio, heard his song playing and took the time to tell me about it! Yes, send djGoddessa the great music and I will play it!!!
