Something of a male version of Fiona Apple, Teddy Geiger is a precocious teenager with a distinctive, idiosyncratic voice. He's given to writing and arranging songs that, while perfectly suited for radio play on the strength of their strong pop moves, go far beyond what is generally offered in the mainstream in terms of sophistication. Where Apple blends jazz into her music, Geiger leans more towards the pantheon of alternative rock in his arrangements. But like Apple, he knows the best way to record the drums, and that's all that really matters, isn't it? Geiger was discovered while acting as a songwriter on the short-lived 2006 TV show Love Monkey. Underage Thinking, his debut album, was released the same year.
