Teku Syndrom is an Edmundston, New Brunswick, Canada based band who are currently riding the success of their debut EP "The Path". The 5-member group brings together their influences--ranging from GnR to Blondie to Iron Maiden--to form their own soaring, surging brand of rock.
Named for the state of mind lead guitarist Eric "Raz" Toussaint enters when songwriting with his trusty Teku glass in-hand, Teku Syndrom features the brilliant voice of lead singer Teresa, along with Raz's own scorching lead work. Jamy (drums) and Phil (bass) lay a technically strong foundation inspired by their prog and metal roots. Eric N completes the line-up on rhythm guitar.
The momentum propelling Teku Syndrom has never been more powerful. It began with the release of their single "Help Me Grow", which garnered attention from around the world. Isaac Banks of FM 89.5 in Canberra, Australia called it "magnificent" and "excellent." And Serge Parent of FM 92.7 in their hometown of Edmundston, New Brunswick deemed it "absolutely beautiful." Despite the song being more of an inspirational ballad, its soaring vocals and driving delivery made it clear that the group was onto something big.
Comes May 2023 and Teku Syndrom release their full EP entitled "The Path" in front of a sold-out crowd at the picturesque Centre des arts d'Edmundston (their photo gallery displays the stunning environment that evening). The EP features 5 tracks which are turning heads with their no-holds-barred guitar-driven rock sound. The Path is showing the press and audiences alike the versatility Teku Syndrom brings to the stage--musicianship at a level as high as anyone; they can rock, groove, and create a live set list varied enough to appeal to audiences of all ages.
The next step for Teku Syndrom is bringing their live show to larger stages. The rehearsals are complete, the album is released, now it's their time to step into the spotlight. Onstage the band does an impressive job of mixing originals and cover songs. It's all about crowd appeal and relatability, while still staying true to their own style and presence. Children of their own musical influences--ranging from GnR to Blondie to Iron Maiden--Teku Syndrom brings a powerhouse live show to the crowd.
Looking at festival bookers and talent buyers: make Teku Syndrom the pleasant surprise in your line-up! People will come for the big-name artist but leave talking about Teku Syndrom. The live show is family friendly with sing-along choruses. Teresa fronts the band with her angelic voice draped across the heavier sound. There are melodies for the singers in the crowd, scorching guitar leads for the guitar aficionados, complex but still rhythmic bass lines for the groovers, and thunderous drums for the headbangers. And the band can cater their setlist to the crowd, able to pull-off a powerhouse set of all originals or pivot to a mixed blend of popular covers mixed in with their original songs.
