Hi we're Templeton Universe - an indie raunchy native rock band from the klein Karoo South Africa. I started off as a solo musician 'Templeton' and morphed into 'Templeton Universe' when my band started coming together (thanks to my soul mate and bass guitarist Cherie Roe Dirksen - no she's not my sister...lol). I've been in loads of bands: 'Birdhouse' 'First Black President' 'The Bends' (Cherie was also in this band with me) 'Band of Hats' and 'mc²' (Cherie and me doing covers) from 1994 onwards so we've been around the block. Our passion is to bring raw good cosmic vibes into the world via our music. We also feel strongly about shifting into a new way of being/thinking in the world and write a lot about what some call the 'awakening' or 'quickening' experience and other important global issues.
