Songbyrd Music House Presents:
TEMPEST (Oakland, CA) http://www.tempestmusic.com/
Since forming in 1988, Tempest has delivered a hybrid of high-energy Celtic Rock. But as the band has matured throughout the years, their music has morphed
stylistically. World Music has seeped into Tempest's over all sound because the band members are drawn to traditional and ethnic music from around
the globe. There has been a natural progression towards coloring Tempest's music with elements from Scandinavia, India, African and Arabic countries.
Middle Eastern flavors, traditional Irish and Scottish Medleys mingle with Robert Burns poems, Norwegian lyrics and heavy rock instrumentals on Tempest's
finest record to date.
Signed to Sony-distributed Magna Carta Records, Tempest's releases are acclaimed worldwide. The group's latest studio CD, The Tracks We Leave, may be the bands most exciting work to date, as their unique blend of world music elements showcases inventive new original and traditional material
