Rhapsody Originals (EP, Exclusive)
by Teddy Geiger
Released: Dec 2006
One of the many perks of being a Rhapsody subscriber is that you are privy to exclusive recordings that no one else offers, like this incredible live performance by Teddy Geiger. "Gentlemen" sets the tone for this collection with romantic balladry punctuated by Geiger's impassioned, raspy voice. On "These Walls" he hits the piano hard on the lower notes while singing soulful high notes (a contrast that makes for a memorable tune). "Try Too Hard" may be the strongest song here. Geiger swaps the piano for an acoustic guitar and sings a heartbreaker that sounds like a cross between Jack Johnson and early Cat Stevens.
