As a solo artist and composer, Templeton has released four critically-acclaimed albums. His style’s often described as ‘cinematic’ and ‘motivic’ with an “assured yet adventurous voice” (Josef Woodward, DownBeat).
As a performer, he’s a sought-after concert and recording artist. He’s recorded on albums by Nels Cline (Rolling Stone’s 100 Greatest Guitarists), collaborated with avant-garde jazz legend Vinny Golia, performed with Grammy nominated big band leader Alan Ferber and participated in the premieres of numerous classical and chamber works, most recently Gavin Bryars’ US premiere of the opera Marilyn Forever. Templeton lives in Los Angeles.
