Artist Spotlight: Temperance Movement
The boozy translation of Temperance Movement is "a social movement against the consumption of alcoholic beverages."
The musical translation is a "bluesy band from London."
Temperance Movement has been rolling across America behind the success of that hit song and a nice following has flared behind this jam ship. They opened for the Rolling Stones last summer and lead singer Phil Campbell's voice sounds a bit like a Mick Jagger/Chris Robinson hybrid. Match up that voice with some gnarly guitar riffs and you have a cool sound.
The band plays a couple more stateside dates, before returning to Europe this summer and some gigs in Sweden. Here's hoping they stop in Iowa before this tour cycle ends.
