Considered one of Dunedin's hardest working acts, Julian Temple Band has been releasing records and touring internationally for over a decade. The groovy, blues influenced quintet consists of Logan Hampton (Alizarin Lizard) on keys, Alex Vaatstra (Matt Langley/Ha The Unclear) on violin, Steve Marshall (Left Or Right) on bass, Paul McLennan-Kissel (Entire Alphabet) on drums and singer/songwriter/guitarist Julian Temple. The group's last two albums reached the top 10 on the Official NZ Album Charts and they have been nominated for various awards including the Hollywood Music In Media Awards (alternative category) and were a finalist in the International Songwriting Competition. The band's sixth studio album is due out in 2018.
"Julian Temple Band conjures a spirit somewhere between the Red Hot Chilli Peppers and a gypsy caravan which, having started off jamming American songs, ended up lost in a desert, found some cactus juice and jumped on another horse entirely." - Shane Gilchrist, ODT, NZ
"Like the loudest blues band in the world whispering" - Zeitgeist, UK
