Temple Wildlife, Bearing Torches, and Jackson Bruck & The Dukes Of Hume

Temple Wildlife

Temple Wildlife was formed through the forge of commitment, trust, and resilience.

Created in 2016, Temple Wildlife founders Adam Griffith (Baton Rouge, LA) and Jared Evers (Portland, OR) met each other in Nashville. After countless hours and a myriad of long nights spent in Evers' studio (a glorified basement), their lamenting over five songs was concluded. They began tracking their first EP.

Temple Wildlife is an indie rock band you can root for.

Long nights and entire weekends were spent tracking their first album. Since both Evers and Griffith had to work day jobs, they spent any leftover hours in the studio, meticulously pouring over the EP.
Other than the collaboration of a few friends and their instruments, the album was produced and engineered entirely by Griffith and Evers. You can hear influences like Bon Iver, Radiohead, The Killers, Local Natives, and Sigur Rós. You may even notice the homage to Gloria Estefan and Stranger Things.

While maintaining and channeling all these musical influences, Black Beans EP is a fresh and exciting listen. Balancing intriguing vocals, spacey guitars, warbled synths – oh, and tons of reverb – you can hear an array of genres, from pop tracks like There Is Fire to straight up '80s grooves like Prides.

Bearing Torches

Soaked in rebellious sweat, rooted in American soul, steadfast as the tenacious prayer of a rock and roll believer, Bearing Torches is walking in the shadows of classic blue collar rock and rollers like Bruce Springsteen, Oasis and Gaslight Anthem - bands whose music glorified the human struggle. Bearing Torches feels like a new chapter in a familiar story, shooting through a wall of guitars, with crashing cymbals, and soaring hooks. "It's music that fills you with gasoline energy," says frontman Jon Ellison. From the punky punch of "Come On" to the radio-friendly strains of "American Kids," their music swings for the fences. This family band pours promise, optimism and relentless energy into a sound that's been blasting from car dashboards and FM radios since the 1970s.
