Music has always been a way of life for Jamie Teachenor. Growing up the son of Rockabilly Hall of Famer, Jim Teachenor, and raised in a family of musicians, Jamie fell in love with singing and playing the piano as a young boy. At the age of nine, he began fronting bands and playing venues all over the Southeast and Midwest. As a teenager, he discovered his talent for writing songs, and his unique ability to connect with an audience began drawing thousands of people to his shows, landing him on the front pages of many newspapers, and gaining him lots of airplay with his regional hit single, “Baby, You Can Fall In Love With Me.” He soon left his home in Fagus, Missouri to pursue music professionally in Nashville, Tennessee.

Once in Nashville, Jamie quickly began making a name for himself, first appearing on the charts with a song he co-wrote with Rory Feek, Blaine Larsen’s 2005 debut hit single, “How Do You Get That Lonely”, a powerful message in the face of suicide, from Larsen’s 2004 album “In My High School,” as well as his 2005 album “Off To Join the World.” The song, along with the story behind it, was included in the 2011 book release, “Chicken Soup For The Soul” Country Music Edition, as well as, “The Billboard Book Of Top 40 Country Hits: 1944-2006.” Teachenor and Feek have written many other songs together, including the 2009 Joey + Rory single, “To Say Goodbye,” from their top ten debut album, “The Life Of A Song,” the 2010 release, “God Help My Man,” from Joey + Rory’s top ten sophomore album, “Album Number Two,” and the 2012 Gwen Sebastian single, “Met Him In A Motel Room.” Teachenor has also had songs recorded by Luke Bryan, Gretchen Wilson, Montgomery Gentry, Craig Campbell, Collin Raye, Trisha Yearwood, Kevin Denney, and Trace Adkins. He and Shane McAnally penned, “What Country Is,” for Luke Bryan’s first Gold record, “Doin’ My Thing.” The album was certified Gold in 2010 and Platinum in 2013. It was also nominated for “Album Of The Year” by the American Country Awards,” and debuted at #2 on the Billboard album charts. Jamie has written songs for many other chart-topping albums as well, including the haunting single, “My Sittin’ Window,” co-written with Kevin Denney and recorded by Blue Moon Rising for their #1 Bluegrass album, “Strange New World.”

In early 2012, Jamie released his debut album, “The Departure.” His first single, “I Never Know,” and his follow-up single, “Free Birds Have Cages,’ both received airplay on Country and Rock Radio. “Free Birds Have Cages,” first aired on RFD TV’s “The Joey + Rory Show,” and he recorded a special mono acoustic version of the single using a late 1940’s era Magnecord tape machine, that was featured on a season one episode of “Nashville Time Machine,” along with a story Teachenor told, titled, “How He Would’ve Wanted It.” He also saw success on College Rock and AAA radio, nationally and internationally, with “Burning,” his third single from “The Departure.” Later that year, Jamie signed an exclusive songwriting agreement with Gasohol Music Publishing, forming the band, “Lo-Fi,” with his new publisher, multi-platinum Grammy Award winning songwriter, engineer, and producer, Joe West. He immediately began working on his 2nd solo project, “Waiting Room,” an EP released in late 2013, and Lo-Fi’s self-titled debut album which is set to come out in early 2014. Lo-Fi made their first public appearance at The Ryman Auditorium as part of the sold out show, “Honor Thy Song,” a concert remembering the songs of Tim Johnson, award-winning Nashville singer-songwriter & producer. The soul of this storyteller and his melting-pot-musical-roots prove that Teachenor has truly been given a multi-genre gift and can appeal to listeners of every kind. His charismatic personality on-and-off stage, gives him the ability to continue to play to sold-out audiences everywhere.
