Owen Teague is bringing a depth and maturity to his work that sometimes feels beyond his years, including in his nuanced performance as Cal Thorne in the new western family drama ‘Montana Story’.
That timeless quality can be felt in his music taste too. Music is his passion, and he plays a number of instruments including the violin and mandolin, which he strums as Cal in his latest film. His mom is a retired jazz singer, and his dad a professor and music lover, and he has been immersed in music all his life.
In our accompanying interview with Cal, he told us the first thing he does when tackling a new role is figure out that character’s music taste.
“I compile a big list of songs and put it into a playlist,” he says. “For Cal, I listened to a lot of older western folk music. A lot of John Prine, a lot of Townes Van Zandt, a lot of Gillian Welch, Alison Krauss, and Colter Wall, who is actually my age but he sings like he’s 60. He’s amazing.”
We are honored and grateful that he has shared that playlist with our Mr Feelgood community, so we can be transported to Montana from our homes. Enjoy!
