Teddy and The Rough Riders have released new single “Livin In The Woods” from their upcoming self-titled LP due July 1st on Appalachia Record Co in digital and physical formats. With a sound that sits “somewhere in the middle of “down-home” and “far out,” the Nashville band loves “retro-sounding, feel-good songs”.
Orville Peck took Teddy and The Rough Riders on a nationwide tour this year that included a stop at the band’s hometown Ryman Auditorium and Country underground artist, Margo Price, Produced their upcoming LP.
Given the chance, they will unite the hippies and the cowboys—the bikers and the stoners—with their groovy country songs.
The single “Livin in the Woods,” poses the idea of leaving town and disappearing into the woods to start a farm with friends.
Up until the sessions for Teddy and the Rough Riders in 2019, the band, including Jack Quiggins (vocals, guitar), Ryan Jennings (vocals, bass), Nic Swafford (drums), and Luke Schneider (pedal steel), had mostly recorded at home. After narrowing down their best demos, the band recruited Margo Price to produce “because of her creative vision and ‘let’s roll’ Neil Young-inspired recording philosophy”. They rented out Club Roar, brought in engineer-producer Jake Davis and spent a few days holed up in the studio to capture the “magic of the session”.
