Temple Canyon is nostalgic rocky canyon magic brewing in Seattle, WA. Vintage tones and vibes, rapturous rock and roll hollowing out to the reflective, soulful storytelling and electrifying vocals of Mariko Ruhle. Giving every song a heart beat, Al Reiter styles the drums - intuitively balancing the emotions and groove. Mariko and Al met while playing their own songs at an open mic around 2012. Their mutual appreciation for heartfelt songwriting has been the spirit and priestess of the project all along. While spurring and sparking new levels of intensity and complexity in the music, they never loose sight of the focus, the song. Driven by their deep desire to perform and create powerful experiences with music, Temple Canyon has tailored the sound and lineup to best reach their own capacity. With a curious and wild nature they continue to explore the unique landscape of the PNW music scene and beyond.
