Introducing Teddy Charles Jr
Teddy Charles Jr. is the latest of the hard rockers to mellow out on the Belfast scene. That’s not to say that mellowing out in softening up. There’s still a gritty vocal tone here and even with layered backing vocals akin to Fleet Foxes, this one has jumped down from the indie-folk fence and placed both feet firmly in the rock camp.
Teddy Charles Jr. is the alter-ego of Alan McGreevy of GOONS and Rupture Dogs, and while ‘Six + One’, his first release under the solo moniker may be worlds away from both all out rock incarnations, it’s a solid debut record full of big tunes and solid songwriting.
You can grab a copy of ‘Six + One’, which features Ross “Tame The Lion” McGuire on backing vocals, Gareth McGreevy on drums and Dave Hanna on guitar, over on the Teddy Charles Jr. Bandcamp.
