Owen Temple on Sat, October 11, 2014

“Temple’s songs are sophisticated and enlightening, offering a view of the Texas west that’s akin to Dave Alvin’s meditations on mid-century California. He writes with a folksinger’s eye, observing intimate, interior details of every day life, and painting big, mythological sketches…” — Hyperbolium

“Owen Temple takes on the job of Texas troubadour with grave intent. Where his previous disc explored the darker side of the American dream, Mountain Home focuses on small Texas towns and the eccentrics inhabiting them… One has to admire Temple’s focus on his craft, which he continues to burnish in smart and tuneful ways.” — Austin Chronicle
