If there is a new sound I’m excited about up North, it’s TMPL. In fact, this new sound is so innovative they are working with some of the biggest companies in the world on some cool projects that you will know and hear about soon. For those of you who don’t know, TMPL is a music project from Toronto-based artists Kevin O’Brien and Eli Andreas. TMPL is fuelled by their desire to create a musical experience that explores the limits of technology.
Originally from Calgary, Kevin began his professional musical career in Toronto, producing and performing as a DJ in the electronic music circuit. Kevin was eager to experiment with a more innovative sound that was ahead of the curve, and could transcend the short life-spans of today’s electronic music trends. Born in Toronto, raised on both sides of the border, Eli has been playing guitar and writing songs since childhood. After moving to Toronto from Muskoka, Eli became professionally involved in the production industry, producing music videos and a variety of media.
His musical hobby evolved into a serious partnership, when Kevin & Eli met on a production. Shortly after they began combining their unique styles, integrating organic and electronic musical elements. TMPL was born from a shared creative drive to experiment and create something they had never seen or heard before. After close to a year in the studio building a conceptual sound and musical identity, this EP, entirely self-written and produced, is the sum of their prolific exploration.
