Surviving the Music Industry

Nov 19, 2019

Talking with one of the good ones, Tebey. Country music artist-songwriter behind songs from One Direction, Cher, FLORIDA, and others. Tebey shares his new music ("The Good Ones" w/ Marie Mai) and his up and down journey to a healthy life. 


Tebey is a Canadian artist, producer, and songwriter currently residing in Nashville, TN.  He has secured three #1’s as a writer - a #1 Billboard US single with Justin Moore’s “Somebody Else Will”, a #1 in Canada with Gord Bamford’s “Dive Bar”, and his first #1 single as an artist (and writer) with his song “Who’s Gonna Love You” for which he also received a SOCAN award in March 2019. Tebey has three official top 5 singles in addition to two top 10 singles as a recording artist, and seven #1’s as a songwriter; one in the US, one in the UK, four in Canada and one in Asia. Notable pop artists to record his songs include One Direction, Fifth Harmony, Pixie Lott, and FLO RIDA. Over the past six years, three of Tebey’s singles have been noted for their substantial spin count, being named “Most Played Canadian Country Song” of both 2013 and 2014, and his recent hit, “Denim on Denim”, was the third-highest spinning song of 2018 in this category. Tebey’s latest EP, “Love A Girl”, was released in the spring of ’18, including the 2 aforementioned singles along with the EDM-laced country song, “Show You What It’s Like”, which is featured on Spotify’s Wild Country playlist (curated in Nashville).


In our conversation, we take a look at his discovery and knowing from day one, that he was destined for country music. We take a look at race, mental health, money, and when life seems to be golden. There will be changes. We take a look at development for artists, and if writing a number one songs isn't enough. What does it take?  For tour dates and updates visit and follow him @tebeymusic.
