The Ohio Artist Registry (OAR) is an exciting opportunity for artists to share their work, connect with the creative community, and establish an online presence—all on a free, virtual platform! The OAR encourages artists working in all art forms, throughout Ohio and beyond, to create a profile, which allows them to better promote themselves and their work. Being listed in the OAR provides artists with new opportunities to share their work with clients, galleries, patrons, and audiences. For more information, contact Kathy Signorino, artist programs director, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 614-728-6140.
Ted is a 30-year veteran of the Columbus, Ohio music scene – playing with Thomas Jefferson Slave Apartments, Moviola, Jenny Mae Leffel, and others. Moviola was formed in 1993 and was his main focus, producing record after single after record for the next 10 years. He started out on drums and then moved to bass for their later records. Meanwhile Thomas Jefferson Slave Apartments (drums) were signed to the boutique label Onion (American Recordings) in the mid-90s and put out the stellar Bait and Switch LP. Fast forward – the 2000s slowed things down with kids and jobs and houses. Then the 2010s brought divorce, new jobs, new focus, new digs.
Today, along with still contributing to Moviola and TJSA, Ted creates his music in a small home basement studio. His songs are personal, sometimes sparse, sometimes fully clothed, but always with a hook and a smart lyric. He plays all of the instruments on his solo records – guitars, bass, keys, drums, vocals, etc.
