In six years, CAUDog Records has produced over a dozen albums.

“We start with the core of a fantastic singer-songwriter we believe in, then build from there,” says Executive Producer Michael Teach.

ALBUMS: We’ve produced albums for local and international artists in genres ranging from acoustic to electric and everything in between.

EVENTS AND MEDIA CAPTURE: We’ve contributed original music to shows at major music venues, conferences and sponsorship celebrations. If you need us to plan, promote, book talent, engineer and capture media (photography, video, multi-track audio) for a festival, we do that too. PA Rental? Engineer? Video? Done.

We’re local and international. Our artists range from local Chicagoans to troubadours from Nashville and as far as Copenhagen, Denmark. Special guests on CAUDog Records albums include stars from American Idol as well as professionally touring musicians. However, the most important asset to CAUDog Records is the wonderful talent right here in Chicago– talent that connects with fans.


CAU founder and host Michael Teach launched CAUDog Records with the mission to help independent artists with professionally produced albums. Genres include Pop, Rock, Americana, Folk, Indie Rock, Singer-Songwriter and more. CAUDog music has aired on radio stations like WXRT 93.1FM, WDCB 90.9FM and artists have appeared on WGN Channel 9, Taste of Chicago and more.
