Ted Hajnasiewicz

Driven to write the perfect song, Ted is constantly composing, learning, listening, playing and singing.

Driven to leave an audience "better than he found it", Ted sings songs that entertain, tells stories that engage the listener.

After 30 years, Ted's love for song has grown all the more. One listen to Ted's songs, and you'll understand why, and feel as if you have known him your entire life.

Ted has been in and out of the Minneapolis music scene since highschool. He was in bands that were regulars in the local scene, performing with former members of Guzzard and Burning Brides, opening for Soul Asylum, Smashing Pumpkins, the Lemonheads and Walt Mink, in the early 90’s. Then he just stepped away. For many years.

In 2018, a sort of “musical Rumplestiltskin”, Ted returned to performing and trying to bring his music to an audience. His upcoming release, “This Is What I Do”, is a culmination of years of song crafting. This is a sort of “greatest hits” package, compiling Ted’s favorite songs into one album to provide a relatable soundtrack for the lover, the loser, the sinner and the saint – roles we all play at any given moment in life. The first two singles, “This Town Is Not For Me” and “If I Could Leave This Place Tomorrow”, have received much radio and press attention, and landed him several local and state-wide shows.

2019 promises to be a busy year for Ted, with the record release, another one in the writing stages, and playing anywhere and everywhere people will have him. “This Is What I Do” is slated for release January 18, 2019, with a big release party at 318 in Excelsior, MN January 23rd.
