"Ted Horrell & The Monday Night Card are an aural breath of fresh air...the artist subverts expectations entirely." - Amelia Vandergast, A&R Factory
"The first thing you have to deal with...is singer Ted Horrell's wide open, seemingly guileless vocals." - Danny Alexander, Pitch Weekly, Kansas City
"There's a touch of early R.E.M. or the Wallflowers on songs like "Waking Up Is Hard To Do" and "Tension in This Town." But make no mistake: This is still very much contemporary rock-and-roll, even if there are other genres mixed in." - Chris Shaw, Memphis Flyer
For nearly 20 years, Ted Horrell has been collaborating with musical friends to play and record his original songs. His current band, The Monday Night Card (named after the once-weekly professional wrestling matches held at the Mid-South Coliseum in Memphis when he was growing up), blends complex harmonies and rich, layered instrumentation to make new music and interpret songs from Horrell's constantly growing repertoire.

Singer-songwriter and guitarist Ted Horrell has been writing, recording, and performing for two decades. His previous band, The Central Standards, was the winner of the Rock 103 "Great Unsigned" contest which earned them a slot at the Beale Street Music Festival. His current backing group, The Monday Night Card, adds a harmony-laden sound influenced by Laurel Canyon bands like The Byrds, The Mamas and the Papas, and Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young with hints of Stax-era soul and new wave thrown into the mix. Horrell’s songwriting and performance style have evoked comparisons to Elvis Costello, Marshall Crenshaw, and early R.E.M. The band’s tight, punchy sound, layers of harmony, and Horrell’s catchy, melodic writing combine for engaging performances of both new and familiar songs.
Ted has released eight collections of original music since 1999. He currently records and performs with The Monday Night Card, but previously sang, wrote songs, and played lead guitar with the Memphis band The Central Standards, as well as with the Kansas City band Resident Clark before that. All of Ted's recorded albums are available to stream or purchase below or from the Store link on this page.
This three-song EP is the product of remote collaboration while Ted and his musical partners were in quarantine due to the Covid-19 pandemic in the spring of 2020.
The songs features contributions from Monday Night Card members Casey Smith on bass, Natalie Duncan on piano, Dru Davison on saxophone, and Anna Pearson on violin. Produced by Ted Horrell with Bryan Hayes. Mixed and Mastered by Bryan Hayes at Farmhouse Recording Studio.
