WENDY BEVAN AND TEMPER TEMPER CREATE A WORLD OF AMBIGUITY SENDING A SHIVER TO THE CORE. THEIR EPIC, ORIGINAL SOUND, FUSES MUSCULAR JAZZ, GLITTERING BLUES AND WEIMAR ROCK AND ROLL; a crunching drum beat that shakes the walls, a thick bassline that echoes in the chest; led by wildcoiffered pianist Seiriol Davies’ madcap, expert playing.

BEVAN’S STUNNING OTHER WORLDLY PERFORMANCE AS A STATUESQUE FEMME FATALE IS HYPNOTIC, AND PURE DIETRICH, HER HAUNTINGLY BEAUTIFUL VOICE, ECHOING THE PAIN OF DESIRE. Temper Temper’s soundscape comes in torrential waves, exploring a 'memorable journey into a David Lynch-like world of deep emotion, rich drama and superb music”. Temper Temper is the coming together of 4 musicians, performers and artists with multidisciplinary backgrounds.

Led by Wendy Bevan; founder/ creative director has a rich history in the visual arts, well known as a photographer and musician, she has also worked as a performer/singer with a number of major producers.
