The Trouble With Templeton

ttwtThe Trouble With Templeton are a 5 piece alternative rock band from Brisbane, Australia. They are: Thomas Calder (vocals, guitar), Hugh Middleton (lead guitar, BVs), Betty Yeowart (keys, BVs), Sam Pankhurst (bass) and Ritchie Daniell (drums).

The Trouble With Templeton recently signed with seminal UK Indie label Bella Union (Fleet Foxes, Midlake, Flaming Lips, Bech House), and are set to release “Rookie” on 12th May.

The band is the creation of singer/songwriter Thomas Calder, a 23-year-old wunderkind who formed the band in 2011. The following year saw TTWT expand to a five-piece including Hugh Middleton (lead guitar, BVs), Betty Yeowart (keys, BVs), Sam Pankhurst (bass, BVs) and Ritchie Daniell (drums), the new members complimenting Calder’s emotive vocals and songwriting with a collaborative, self-assured sound.
