Teddy Geiger was first seen in national media as a finalist in VH1's In Search of the Partridge Family and earned credibility when touring with Hilary Duff as the opening act for her summer 2005 tour Still Most Wanted. His first single, "For You I Will (Confidence)", was officially released in February 2006. The song received positive reviews, being called "sweetly romantic" and said to contain "sophisticated lyrics", besides being nominated for "Best Love Song" in the 2006 Teen Choice Awards.
Underage Thinking (2006)
His debut album, Underage Thinking, was released on March 21, 2006, and peaked at number eight (#8) in the US Billboard 200 albums chart. The album won the award for "Best Album of the Year" at the annual MusiqTone MusiqAwards. Geiger was also nominated for "New Artist of the Year" but lost to Panic! at the Disco. Geiger also received an AVMA for the "highly coveted" Brand Spankin' New Artist in 2007.
In September 2006, his second single "These Walls" was released and steadily played on radio stations. A couple of months later, Geiger appeared on the cover of Seventeen, becoming the first male on the cover of the magazine in five years.
The Last Fears (2013)
In November 2011, Geiger announced that he was working on a new album The Last Fears. The self-produced album was released on May 14, 2013 through his own label Jabbarock and is available worldwide on iTunes.
Teddy Geiger is a featured artist on Tiesto's 2013 album Club Life: Volume Three Stockholm with the song "Love and Run". Club Life: Volume Three Stockholm debuted at number 16 in the Billboard charts and number one in multiple dance charts worldwide.
Geiger acted in a small role on the cult series Love Monkey, which originally aired on CBS and was quickly moved to VH1. He played a young up-and-coming musician Wayne Jensen, starring alongside Tom Cavanagh and Jason Priestley. His song "For You I Will (Confidence)" was featured as the theme to the show on later episodes.
His feature-film debut came on August 20, 2008, with The Rocker, starring Rainn Wilson, Emma Stone, Christina Applegate and Josh Gad. In the film Geiger was the lead singer of the fictional band A.D.D. for which a number of original songs were written. All of them with addition of the cover of Poison's "Nothin' But a Good Time" were released on the film's soundtrack featuring Geiger on lead vocals.
On December 16, 2012, Geiger was featured on the television show Royal Pains, singing at Evan and Paige's wedding.
