Event Details

Gentle Temper is a new-age folk duo from Boston, Massachusetts. Ryan Meier and Marion Earley began their journey as a duo in the fall of 2016 and molded their sound into what Deli Magazine called “harmony-laced smokey folk”. They have toured the northeastern U.S. extensively over the last three years, opening for nationally touring bands the Ballroom Thieves, the Western Den, Honeysuckle, Bombadil, the Family Crest, LOLO, Town Meeting, and Julie Rhodes. The duo have played in support of numerous charitable organizations including Relay for Life, Chikombuso Women & Orphans Foundation, the Beauhawks Foundation, the ACLU, and the Animal Refuge League of Portland.

Just three days shy of the anniversary of the release of their debut album, “Our Warm Red Light”, Gentle Temper released their latest single, “Triple Dog Dare”. “Triple Dog Dare” began as a poem describing a moment of contemplation and observation of Earley’s own life and of the world around her. The poem has since morphed into a song that is, at its core, an individual’s personal call to action; a reminder that we do have control over our circumstances, and that we hold the power to change them as we see fit.
