Tempus was formed in January of 2021 from the remnants of 2 local bands, Stoned Ape Theory (Holton, Ks) and Stories We Tell (Kansas City, Ks). Guitarist and Producer Brett Dallman was attempting to start a new project with the help from former Stoned Ape bandmates, Jordan Moseley (Guitar) and Jackson Ahlgren (Bass). Brett reached out to Ted Forshey (vocals) to see if he would like to hear a couple tracks that were currently in the works. Ted immediately latched onto the music and the beginnings of Tempus was born!
During that same time period, Tempus was hosting drum tryouts and they brought Rob Alaniz in to tryout. Ironically, years prior, Rob had been a member of Stoned Ape Theory.
As the band was sitting in the rehearsal space after the tryout, Rob started messing around on a keyboard and they quickly realized his biggest asset to the band was on the keys/synth. So that’s when they decided to add that element to the band.
Drum tryouts were ongoing and that’s when Ted reached out to his old Stories We Tell bandmate Greg Ochoa who was taking a break from music.
"We brought Greg in and everything immediately clicked with the group and we were finally a full 6 piece band! The first hit single “Maybe This Time” was the first song we’d ever wrote together and we can’t wait to grow as a group and share our music with the world. We believe our sound is unique compared to other up and coming bands and it’s something that will stick with you and grow. Melodic Hard Rock with strong vocal hooks and harmonizing vocals paired with sonic intensity. Just what the Doctor ordered."
