March Feature: Gentle Temper is Ryan Meier and Marion Earley, an ocean-folk duo with a blues tide from the bay of Boston, MA. Marion and Ryan met while attending college in Boston and began writing and playing together in August of 2016. Their live sound builds on a sturdy foundation of lyrical storytelling, animated harmonies & a steady undercurrent of dynamics.

Gentle Temper have opened for nationally touring acts LOLO, Ballroom Thieves, Bombadil, and 2014 NPR Favorite New Artist The Family Crest.

They've had the pleasure of performing in support of various charities and foundations, including the Chikumbuso Women and Orphans Project, Casa Myrna Vazquez Inc., The American Civil Liberties Union and Relay for Life. The duo was featured on NBC10’s “Boston’s Bucket List” as winners of the Lizard Lounge Main Event in July 2018 and was featured in the Top 15 of WBUR 90.9’s local NPR Tiny Desk Favorites in that same year. They have additionally been nominated for Best New Artist in The 2018 Boston Music Awards.
