The Tempus Collective are :
Kevin Fleming - writing, vocals & keys
Stewart Grieve (Solo Greebo) - writing, keys and production
Tempus are a duo hailing from Glasgow/Scotland, consisting of Kevin Fleming (vocals and keys) and Stewart Grieve (Keys, programming and production). The boys first met at school and have been playing together since 1983. They got their first 4-track a few years later and have continued to be bedroom music makers ever since, except for a 10 year recess to attend to family life.
Over the years there have been various musicians who have joined the ranks but it remains a two piece outfit for the moment with guest musicians joining the band for selected projects as they are required.
Influenced by the likes of The Blue Nile, David Sylvian,Thomas Feiner and similar melancholic artists, the Tempus sound is usually a subdued affair that could never be considered mainstream.
"We spend a lot of time on production, we always have, its about making the best of what you have at the time, both in ability and equipment and as the years have gone on, both have improved vastly. We always felt that one good sounding song was worth 10 poor ones ! That's what we strive for, That's where we always channeled our energies and it still is to this day."
Using Soundcloud as their main platform to showcase their music Tempus have accumulated a decent following and gained a lot of confidence from the warm reception they have received from fellow musicians and music lovers alike....
