A small-town girl of Metis decent with a big voice and an even bigger message. There’s no better way to describe the power of BC-born producer/singer/songwriter Teigen Gayse.
As a little girl she was Olympic bound as a professional figure skater. Then, at the age of 13 she picked up her first guitar. It wasn’t long before song-writing became a passion. It was the ability to tell her own story, in her own words, that began Teigen’s love for country music. That desire to create pushed her to get an audio engineering degree before striking out on her own as a full-time musician.
“I’ve always been fascinated with the writers — wanting to know who created the song,” she explained.
That desire to create has continued to be fed by trips to Nashville, as well as co-writes with several industry veterans, including Chad Kroeger, Gordie Samson, Jeff Trott, Dylan Guthro, Emma Lee Doty, Baker Grissom, Phil Barton, Patricia Conroy, Andrew Allen, Dave Faber, David Thompson and Buddy Owen just to name a few.
“There is no better feeling than getting to perform something I wrote in front of my fans – its the connection with them that pushes me to work hard.”
Her highly anticipated new single “If You Show Me Yours” produced and co-written with Chad Kroeger was released to radio on March 24 2023. Teigen is currently on a cross country Promo tour that started March 28, 2023 in Vancouver and will end In Toronto April 22 2023. Teigen will make appearances on ET Canada, ETalk, The Morning Show, CTV and Global.
With millions of Catalog streams to date and over 45 million Tik Tok views, Teigen came to the forefront of artists to watch. Her single “I Don’t Need A Boy” won Break out Artist for Acadia Broadcasting. The single went Top 50 at Country Radio with over 1 Million streams and an impressive 39.2 Million Tik Tok Views. Single “Messed Up” has surpassed 700K streams on its own, while her 2021 single “I Don’t Wanna Fall In Love Anymore” has almost 3 Million TikTok views. Follow up single “Blame the Wine” reached #46 on the Billboard charts.
You can find Teigen out on the road this summer at Boots and Hearts, Cavendish Beach Festival, Calgary Stampede, and on tour with Gord Bamford with more announcements to come!
