After nearly a year or sporadic trips to Red Bull Arts recording studio in 2017, Gentle Temper have realized their debut album, “Our Warm Red Light” due out October 7th, 2018.
Two years ago, Ryan Meier and Marion Earley split from their respective bands to embark on a new project. Gentle Temper was born. The “ocean folk” duo. Over the course of the next two years they explored newer, more intimate musical territory, and have woven a new cloak from stripped, lyrically-driven thread. Their sound swings from calm to calamity like the tides they often allude to. Their strength lies in the undercurrent of their musical dialogue, through a wash of shared melody and harmony, and the interplay of their human intricacies.
Their debut album tells the story of two people exercising the boundaries of their comfort and participating in the life of the other. Their stories recite the journey of hardship and reward for a fledgling duo determined to grow.
