"It's great morning music" -Jonnie Downs, Nashville TN "With each listen it's completely fresh and provoking" -Carolyn Alterio, Chicago IL Michael Teaney is a musician living in Nashville Tennessee. He is a classically trained guitarist who loves acoustic music. He picked up the banjo about ten years ago and has since been creating a very unique style of music from many spheres of influence. He grew up in the Appalachian Mountains and the music of that area has heavily influenced his style. His classical background is also very apparent. There are hints of jazz, blues, and even rock n' roll that surface when listening to his music making it quite hard to categorize. The Meantime is his latest work and is a collection of instrumental acoustic pieces.
