If Tedo Stone gets any free time these next few months, he’ll be a lucky man. He and his band just embarked on a tour that has them zig-zagging across the Southeast and the Midwest, including a recording session with Daytrotter and a show at Cincinnati’s now-famed Fountain Square. Along with that, Tedo’s debut studio album, Good Go Bad, is set to be released via This Is American Music on July 9th. And more tour dates follow that.

I caught the band’s recent set at Green Room during AthFest. In ways, it reminded me of the very first time I saw him play close to two years ago at The Hummingbird in Macon. His music has the same raw pulse now as it did then, only the members of the band read each other better.

Taste“, the single from Good Go Bad, is part bedroom-blues and part-garage-angst, melodic and charming without losing its edge. I can only imagine how good the rest of the album will be given Tedo’s previous work and the band he’s working with now.
