Teddy Geiger’s The Last Fears
Justin Timberlake isn’t the only artist who’s last album was released in 2006.
Teddy Geiger, the New York-based singer-songwriter/producer’s sophomore album, The Last Fears, was recently released on May 14th through iTunes. The album is the follow-up to Geiger’s highly acclaimed debut album, Underage Thinking, which entered the 2006 Billboard charts at #8, anchored by the million selling hit, “For You I Will.”
The Last Fears showcases the mature evolution of the multi-instrumentalist Geiger, who recorded the album in Nashville, Los Angeles, Woodstock, New York City and his own living room! The self-produced The Last Fears blends traditional pop structure with accents of electronica and ballads tinged with mandolins and steel guitars.
Songs such as the anthemic “Shake if Off,” which celebrates the iconic spirit of American youth, the soulful and introspective “Home,” and others feature an array of world class collaborators such as Larry Campbell of Levon Helm & Bob Dylan fame. By the conclusion of the album’s final track, The Last Fears squarely establishes the re-emergence of Teddy Geiger as an artist at the forefront of the independent American music landscape.
In addition to his successes in music, Geiger is also a noted actor, best known for his work starring opposite Emma Stone in 2008’s “The Rocker,” and playing the muse in the cult hit TV series, “Love Monkey.” For more information, please visit Teddy Geiger on the Web.

What sets Jillian apart is the fact that she does not only sing and compose her works, she also plays multiple instruments. Jillian says this is because her love for music is so great that she wishes to expand her knowledge of it as much as she possibly can.
