ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Strong story driven song writing that captivates and evokes emotion. Mostly acoustic instrumentation that occasionally goes electric and heavy. "Wistful songs delivered through a voice that might be described as whiskey-tainted or resembling a dusty Texas back road"

Lost Horizon is a rich, diverse collection of 12 story driven songs sometimes electric with a full band and other times bare and acoustic with string arrangements. To record Lost Horizon, Dave set up shop in his old home town of Guelph in the studio of noted musician/producer, Scott Merritt (Stephen Fearing, Fred Eaglesmith), who produced, engineered, mixed and played on the sessions. The band included top shelf Ontario musicians, Jeff Bird(Cowboy Junkies), Blake Manning(David Wilcox, Jill Barber), Scott Merritt, Anne Lindsay, Lewis Melville, Craig Norris and Mike Ostler.

Dave Teichroeb Story ...
"I just moved to Nanaimo, BC. My life has taken me down some difficult roads. My mother died in my arms at sixteen as I tried to save her. I lost interest in school and went hitch hiking. I grew up traveling and moving and I can't shake it. I'm not young. I'm not old. My half life has me carrying a wealth of experiences that have taught and defined me.

I've got a great new album called "Lost Horizon" that I spent the last year recording with Scott Merritt in Guelph, Ontario. Scott chose 12 songs from twenty I brought in. They tell my story. Then, now and where I'm going. He said they leave you interested and wanting more. A northerner removing layers of clothing after a long walk in the snow.

I'm a husband and father, I've been a penniless wanderer, and I've worked in factories trying to be a straight jobber but always writing and singing my songs. I'm troubled at the injustice this world deals out to so many. To listen to my albums or see me live is to join me and share."

Dave has performed with Gurf Morlix, Guy Clark, Stephen Fearing, Katherine Wheatley, Terry Tuffs, Luther Wright and Greg Quill and a host of others at festivals, performing arts centres and honekytonks. In Texas he shared the stage with legends Billy Joe Shaver, Johnny Bush and Kent Finlay. Dave performed weekly in Guelph (2004-2007) at his popular Thursday Night Sessions with many of Canada's great songwriters. In Texas, Teichroeb played weekly around the Austin area (2001-2004), notably at the infamous Cheatham Street Warehouse at his popular Friday Happy Hour where he quickly gained a following for his Canadian influenced song writing. Dave and his music have been heard at festivals, on network TV, nationally on CBC radio, college radio, and various compilations. His lyrics have been quoted in the Journal of Texas Music History. Dave is a solid solo performer who has been described as making a room feel like Canada. An understated story teller, he delights in combining personal experience with personal opinion.

In summer 2007, Teichroeb relocated to the solitude of Canada's west coast in Nanaimo, BC. Away from the distracting hustle of Southern Ontario he is going full on with his song writing and performing career and hosts a weekly radio show on CHLY called Road Poets. Dave Teichroeb's (pronounced Tike- robe) story begins back in 1991 when as an aspiring song writer and performer he teamed up with musician-songwriter Lewis Melville and formed the critically acclaimed Canadian indie label DROG. Wanting to give more time to his own music, but locked into the cycle of promoting the label and it's artists, he eventually left the label in 2001 to pursue his own music full time.


Past reviews:

Greg Quill of the Toronto Star "Canadian Whiskey bears all the earmarks of his best work as a songwriter." And about his sophomore CD Yesterday Motel he says "an independent masterpiece!"

Dave Teichroeb's first solo recording, dog tales, is considered by Bill Stunt (CBC) and Richard Flohil (The Record), to be one of the best Canadian releases of 1999.

Teichroeb's professional musical career started in 1987 in Guelph, Ontario where he formed award winning blues-rockers Dizzy Maroon and later modern rock band Dissemblers in 1991 who toured Germany twice and performed weekly along the 401 corridor of Ontario.
