Bio

Singer and songwriter Luke Temple was born in Salem, MA, though he lived for a time in northern California before he returned to New England as a student of the School of Boston's Museum of Fine Arts, where he studied painting. After he completed his studies, Temple pulled up stakes again, moving to New York City, but as he was trying to launch his career as a visual artist, he developed a new interest in music. Temple started writing songs and playing at small clubs around New York; he also began recording his material on a simple four-track machine in his apartment, and tapes of his material started to circulate. Eventually, one of Temple's demos arrived at the offices of Mill Pond Records, an independent label based in Seattle, and they were taken with his breathy high tenor, naïve but tuneful melodies, and impressionistic, personal lyrics. In 2004, Mill Pond released Temple's first record, a self-titled four-song EP, and his first full-length album, Hold a Match for a Gasoline World, followed in 2005. Temple developed a loyal following in the Northwest, and he soon found himself shuttling back and forth between his home in Brooklyn and Seattle. Temple's burgeoning career enjoyed a boost when in the fall of 2006 his song "Make Right with You" was featured in an episode of the hit television series Grey's Anatomy, raising his profile, boosting sales of the Hold a Match album, and increasing anticipation for his second disc, Snow Beast, which was scheduled for release in the summer of 2007.
