Teigen's new single "Messed Up" was written by Teigen, Jimmy Thow, Jordan Oorebeek & Chris Buck and was produced by Jimmy and Jordan.
Of the release, Teigen says: "This last year has been such an incredible journey for me and I’m so excited and proud of the body of music I’ve been creating with my closest friends. My new single 'Messed Up' is about being so undeniably and unapologetically in love with someone. I hope everyone loves it as much as I do".
The single has seen great digital streaming support from Amazon Music's Breakthrough Country, Fresh Country, and Brand New Music, and Spotify's Live Country and New Music Friday Canada
“I’ve always been fascinated with the writers — wanting to know who created the song,” she said.
“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.”
Gayse says the desire to create has continued to be fed by trips to Nashville, as well as co-writes with several industry veterans.
A small-town girl of Métis descent 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.
She picked up her first guitar at the age of 13. It wasn’t long before songwriting 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. “There is no better feeling than getting to perform something I wrote in front of my fans – it's the connection with them that pushes me to work hard.”
That desire to create has continued to be fed by trips to Nashville, as well as co-writes with several industry veterans, including Brian Howes, Phil Barton, Patricia Conroy, David Thompson, Chris Buck, Jimmy Thow, Chrystal Leigh, and Jordan Oorebeek, just to name a few.
The fact is people are taking notice.
While her 2021 single I Don’t Wanna Fall In Love Anymore has almost 3 Million TikTok views. It took home the honour of Trending Track from Stingray Radio hitting #43 on the Billboard Country Music charts, and amassing over 350,000 streams. Follow up single Blame the Wine reached #46 on the Billboard charts is currently on the rise.
Both songs came from a very real place, and for Teigen, there’s no better inspiration than the real world — especially when that means getting to share her personal journey with her audience.
''Teigen Gayse has found her unique sound and her new music is going to take her straight to Nashville climbing the charts,'' says Kim Cyr, Editor in Chief for NOW and THEN Magazine, radio host, and host of the International Music's Journey Podcast. ''Gayse has a way of bringing lyrics to life with her rhythmic melodies that are filled with emotion. Gayse has a very bright future in country music and we are all along for an exciting journey.
