Julian Temple Band formed in Dunedin, New Zealand in February, 2004. They have independently recorded and released four albums; In Sea (2006), Quiet Earth (2009), Balance Escapes (2010) and Upsidedownbackwards (2012). Within a week of its release, "Upsidedownbackwards" debuted on the Official New Zealand Music Chart and quickly climbed from number 17 to number 7 over three weeks. The band have toured extensively across New Zealand, Australia and the U.S.A.
Temple released his solo album titled Nowhere Fast in October 2011. To promote the work, the troubadour embarked on a world tour which saw him play three countries in three consecutive nights and tour the U.S.A., Australia and New Zealand for six months.
After a change in line-up during 2012, including the addition of a violinist, JTB commenced work on their fourth studio album and various tours around N.Z. and abroad.
Members: PMK (drums), Paul McMillan (bass), Julian Temple (guitar/vocals), and Alex Vaatstra (violin).
