Soulful vocals and open tuned strummed and finger style 7 string acoustic electric guitar are the backdrop for this Bay area veteran's politically charged soulfolk anthems. With a striking combination of the deadly serious and tongue in cheek humor, he writes music to challenge the status quo and inspire the disillusioned and apathetic. The addition of the fat low notes of the 7 string helps drive funky grooves and deep wells of emotive ballads.

"some of the most funky and tuneful music I've heard lately" (

"If you're a fan of Dave Matthews, you may find a new favorite artist here" (

"Your brilliant cd was played and now no one can find it.
I am requesting another copy.
PLEASE... Dj's are missing it" Kate Klein KMUD radio

"robert temple is a modern day protest singer but turns the traditional acoustic guitar into a instrument filled with funk and soul" Jim Clark, Lee County Courier Tupelo Mississippi

robert is almost done with recording two new songs, the first recordings of the 7 string sound.
This is a lean affair with drums, 7 string and vocals and still manages to get a big sound.
The songs are "one more person with a gun" inspired by the events of Tucson 2011 and "it must be possible" a powerful anthem of change.
stay tuned!
