"Ted Riser is a natural born talent that I've known for almost 30 years. I've seen him in every band situation he's played in, but was pleasantly shocked when I saw his one man band. After all these years, Ted still impresses me with his musical ability, and the wall of sound that comes off the stage as he performs by himself. It's THE best solo acoustic act I've ever seen!"

- Tim Bradach


"I've mixed Ted's live shows for years, and his solo performances are incredible. His coordination and timing are impeccable, all while playing guitar, singing, playing harmonica and using both feet to keep rhythm with a kick drum and tambourine. His repertoire of songs is unending. Truly amazing to watch him perform!"

- J. Brian Dugan, Sound Engineer


"I, and anyone I know that has seen Ted perform his one man band, have been very impressed. I feel I've been around the proverbial block in music, and I have never seen such a perfect combination of good vocals, incredible playing and song selection!"
