Opening door#15 on our Advent Calendar, we find this true gem that we had the pleasure of releasing a few weeks back. Super proud of this wonderful cinematic songwring ballad full of love about love, that you can literally feel . The track is ‘Growing & Glowing’ as it rightfully should. The Press Text is just as well described as it is insightful to not be placed here :
About ‘If I Could be Yours’ and the team-up of Temple Haze & producer narou :
If I Could Be Yours is a ballad, conceptualised as an equivocal and psychedelic narrative into the different ways love can be perceived. ‘When you first fall for someone they seem to be the answer to all your questions, you can see this person as your saviour, maybe they are your saviour, maybe it is just lust disguised as love, maybe you are truly in love but do not understand how to see it, these are the main themes I was inspired by’, Temple says… Moreover, the song is a tribute to the idea of love; how we can see and feel love as this transformative entity.
If I Could Be Yours is based in Gospel. ‘My mother is a gospel and choir singer and I always had that influence following and motivating me. With this track I felt a calling to channel my mothers energy into the songs essence, as she inspired me to be authentic to myself.’
Temple started his journey into music on the road, hitchhiking through America and Europe, working on organic farms, living an off-the-grid lifestyle, busking on the streets and finding his way as a vagabond. After nearly 4 years on the road He moved to Berlin to settle into the vibrant artistic community. Since then the Washington, DC native has been making waves in Berlin’s underground music scene. He is best known for his collaborations as a singer and co-composer of BAKERY, featured vocalist with SAM SHURE, and currently in collaboration with the producer NAROU. Temple’s live repertoire includes solo acoustic shows, full band shows, downbeat ableton live sets, mystical DJ sets, and ambient soundscapes…
All in all, Temple has played at over 200 shows around the world, and as a support act for Crystal Fighters (with Bakery) and Rising Appalachia (Solo).
Temple also dives deep into sound design, film score composition, brainwave entrainment frequencies, and ancient mantras bringing the music scene and spirituality together in a unique combination. As co-founder and musical director of Soneiro Collective he holds space for sound journeys and vocal workshops portraying the best of his universal knowledge and empathic feeling for music.
