Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that their daughters probably already have huge crushes on Teddy Geiger after seeing him on a couple of TV shows. There is not much to worry about here, aside from some mild innuendo.

What's the story?

It's easy to imagine 17-year-old Teddy Geiger listening to John Mayer records for hours on end, singing along into his bedroom mirror. Geiger's UNDERAGE THINKING album practically screams "Pop Hottie du Jour, over here," yet there's enough throaty sensitive-guy vocal stuff to evoke Mayer. Geiger is musically competent enough to contribute guitar, piano, bass, and drum tracks, and keeps his vocals settled down in a comfortable, accessible midrange. In the teen heartthrob department, your younger teens could do a whole lot worse.

Is it any good?


Excellent instrumental tracks support and enhance the artist's performances, but the songs themselves don't have all that much to say. Introspective and perhaps even a bit whiny, most of the songwriting performs the required task of providing an arena for the singer, but never elevates or enlightens. Still, Teddy Geiger is an emotional, honest performer who seems to feel comfortable in his own (very adorable) skin, and also well aware of both his strengths and limitations.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about the phenomenon of the male teen idol. Parents can compare Teddy with their generation's fantasy dream date.
