Teen Daze is the stage name for solo Canadian electronic musician Jamison Isaak[1] originally from Abbotsford, British Columbia.

His first albums were released in 2010, attracting the attention of online music press outlets such as Pitchfork Media.[2] Signing with Lefse Records, he released the full-length All of Us Together in 2012,[3] followed quickly by Glacier in 2013. On his 2015 John Vanderslice-produced album Morning World, Teen Daze shifted from an electronic-driven style with elements of chillwave, house, and ambient to more of an indie pop sound, adding his own vocals.[4]

Teen Daze released Interior in 2021, describing it as "an album of first loves refracted through prisms of wisdom, wounds, and wonder."[5]
