Biography

Taken from the bands’ official homepage: TempusBand.com

Listen to one track off of Tempus’ Lie Like We Do, and you won’t believe that the band members were just 17 when they wrote and recorded it. In the spring of 2001, guitarist/vocalist Chris Harvey and drummer Jose Rosario decided to turn their after-school jam sessions into something more serious. Just days after high school graduation, the boys packed their bags and headed to Boston to record their first album. In 2002 they released “Like Like We Do” and booked several shows at famed venues in New York City, including The Elbow Room, The Lion’s Den, and Downtime.

After their second performance at The Elbow Room, the band invited then-fan Robert Paul to jam with them on the keyboards at their next rehearsal. Amazed by his talents, they soon welcomed him into the band. For the next two years, the band continued working and attending their respective colleges, playing spot shows when their schedules allowed for it. Audiences instantly connected with Tempus’ profound lyrics and acoustic sound. What especially stood out was their on-stage demeanor: They weren’t trying to be rock stars; they were being themselves - three guys who loved music, and who loved sharing it with anyone who would listen. In the summer of 2004, the guys headed back to Boston to record the “Keep Burning” EP. Its compelling title track urges listeners to “tend those dreams, that make life worth living” - just as the guys have been doing for years.

2005 was their most successful year to date, with 30 shows played. They’re following it up with a studio album, coming in 2007.
