‘If I Could Be Yours‘ is a ballad, conceptualised as an equivocal and psychedelic narrative into the different ways love can be perceived. The song is a tribute to the idea of love; how we can see and feel love as this transformative entity.
‘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 Haze says.
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, as support act for Crystal Fighters (with Bakery) and Rising Appalachia (Solo). He released his debut solo EP “Anotherside” on February 2018. His musical journey now starting with ‘If I Could Be Yours’ is much influenced by the vibe of James Blake, the honest and raw songwritings by Frank Ocean, Jordan Rakei, Moses Sumney and Daniel Caesar.
‘If I Could Be Yours’ is based in Gospel. Influenced and motivated by his mother who’s a gospel and choir singer, Temple Haze is named with artists like Daniel Caesar, Moses Sumney, Frank Ocean, Jordan Rakei, Sampha. The production by the Berlin based producer narou who is well known for the production of James Hersey since 2014, reminds a lot of Nick Hakim.
