Still working on that hot first release.



The band Electric Temple, was formed in 2018, with members hailing from the metropolitan Detroit area.  The group could be viewed as an eclectic and contemporary rock band.  The seamless synergy between members is extremely apparent, and especially exhibited in the groups ability to compose original music in a variety of ways, ranging from: Improvisation inside of arrangements, to purely improvised music based of off general themes, along with some songs with strict arrangements.  The band is presently structured primarily as an instrumental rock trio, but some vocally oriented material is currently being added to the mix.  The band members include John Barron (Bassist/Vocalist), Rob Luteran (Guitarist), and Michael Thompson (Drummer).
Based in Detroit, Michigan, Canadian-born bassist John Barron has performed and recorded with numerous artists in a variety of musical genres. Highlights include Bettye Lavette, Motown legends The Contours and Martha Reeves, Wayne Kramer (MC5), Odessa Harris, Jill Jack and Dennis Coffey. As a composer his music is far reaching in scope, leaning toward jazz, rock and electronic ambient works. www.johnbarronmusic.com

Michael Thompson exhibits a very nice, feel over flash, drumming style.  He has 25 years of experience as a working musician, when combining: Private drum instruction, studio work, and collaboration with musicians in both a live and studio setting.  He has been a member of several metropolitan Detroit area bands, and has supported notable bands, including: The Headhunters, Melvin Seals and the Jerry Garcia Band, Mofro, and Strange Folk.  Michael took private instruction and studied under two great local drummers: Darryl Pierce and Donny Gruendler.  He has collaborated and performed, primarily in the styles of rock, funk, fusion, and world music.  Information can be found at: www.mjtdrummer.com
