Here at Teddy, we’re constantly impressed by what our sales associates accomplish in and out of the stores. As some of you may know, Corinne Callen (who works at our Manhattan store) is also an insanely talented musician who is a part of three groups: Corinne Callen solo, American Dream, and Le Mood. How she works full-time AND takes part in three different projects, we’ll never know!
To give a little bit of background,
I started singing in choir and musical theater when I was young, and then eventually picked up the classical guitar in high school. My first band was an all girls rock band called The Powder Kegs.
I moved to Tallahassee, FL in the fall of 2000, and started writing and performing my solo music there which I eventually took with me when I moved to NYC in late 2004. I had my start in the New York scene playing Sidewalk Cafe, CB’s Gallery and Sine Bar.
I began collaborating with my cousin Marco in Le Mood in early 2006 which led to multiple tours and recording sessions, television song placements, etc.
I started playing live with new solo music and my band in 2008 mostly in Brooklyn to start, and I self released my record “Blow the Cover” in late 2010.
American Dream is my latest project co-written with Tommy USA. We are working on taking this project into the studio soon, but so far have recorded demos of our material and have begun performing our songs live.”
