The band live and in the heat of the moment from their CD release
party for "Things are going..."
Robert Temple's deep connection to music began
while listening to recordings of his mother's folk singing in the
basement of his New Jersey home. Listening to rock and roll, R&B,
and later funk and rhythmic international dance music, as well as
working and living with people of diverse cultures in Chicago, Detroit,
and Cleveland, and driving a taxicab in the streets of San Francisco,
all helped form the basis for his stories and his style.
the last couple of years, Robert has developed his powerful vocal
style and open tuning, finger-style acoustic guitar playing. This
has led to the current release of his CD "If He Could Only
Reach Her" on the Broken Pretzel Music label.
You can purchase Robert Temple’s CD here for $20.00 each.
