Sacred Forests and City Streets

Recently Silent Temple has begun making the world their stage, playing on the streets of Portland OR, and on certain occasions, in the Sacred Forest, from whence our music hath wended.

Silent Temple’s Portland Debut

Joined by the extremely talented Audrey Howl (lead guitar) and Harrison Games (drums), Silent Temple’s first performance on the West coast will be as the host of a funk/rock/prog jam session at renowned rock venue Dante’s in Downtown Portland. While Silent Temple is a Folk-prog group, we are most definitely Down to Funk.

Journey to the West

2015 saw the first tour of Chicago-based Folk Metal band Eikthyrnir. Beginning in the Midwest and continuing throughout the continental US West Coast, we saw many grand scenes and met even more wonderful, passionate and supportive people.

Once I had witnessed the majestic Pacific Northwest natural environment coupled with the culture’s sense of stewardship and conservation, It came as no surprise that when my body fared elsewhere, my heart was left behind in the mossy, sea-sprayed mountain forests where the hippies roam and mushrooms grow.

A little over 3 years later, bassist Mike Ewers and I left Chicago to seek our musical fortune in Portland Oregon. This website will document our upcoming performances, releases, and other events.
