Chicago Acoustic Underground

Eager to create more opportunities for musicians and utilize “new” technology like podcasts, Michael Teach founded Chicago Acoustic Underground, along with Jacob Covington and Michael Narvaez.

Chicago Acoustic Underground podcasts are created with a radio-show format, providing close-up interviews with singer-songwriters and their music. A “podcast” is similar to a radio “broadcast”, except the podcast is available online and can be listened to on any MP3 player or iPod. Each episode is recorded live at the CAU studio in Chicago. The studio puts musicians at ease with windows overlooking Armitage Avenue. Inside, it’s decorated with house plants, music memorabilia and a wide collection of guitars and hand percussion- not to mention a bright yellow, mint-condition drum set.
