Tempest Live For Today

Tempest - "Let's Live For Today"
(from the upcomming album "Another Dawn")
Recorded in 2009

When a band covers a classic song, they’d better make damn sure to do it justice. Tempest’s gripping remake of The Grass Roots’ 1960’s classic anthem, “Let’s Live For Today”, does just that while urging us to make a difference in the here and now.

Tempest’s rousing rendition of “Let’s Live For Today” couldn’t have come at a better time. Amid global and domestic concerns, “Let’s Live For Today” is extraordinary music for extraordinary times. Vocalist Lief Sorbye’s evocative, slightly accented (he’s from Norway) delivery recalls perfectly all the mixed emotions and complexities of the original while capturing the uncertainty and joys of our modern and turbulent world.

Over many decades, “Let’s Live For Today” has meant so much to so many people, in peacetime and war, and the urgency in Tempest’s version courses with meaning while leaving us with a life-affirming message.

Produced by multi-instrumentalist/studio stalwart Robert Berry, “Let’s Live For Today” – yet another timeless musical entry in Tempest’s extensive catalog -- fuses Celtic, hard rock and roots influences. The track is a beautiful mix of flute, mandolin, violin, slamming drums, acoustic and electric guitars. These elements have always been the basis of Tempest’s sound.

Tempest is a band with members from 5 different countries, more than 20 years on the road, and the desire to bring their musical tradition to as many people as possible. Tempest is a band with something meaningful to say and the ability to say it while still being very entertaining.

“Let’s Live For Today” is a track that deserves your full attention.


Tempest - "Beaumont Rag" (Not Available on any album)
Recorded in 2009

This traditional Texas Swing tune was named after the town of Beaumont, Texas. “Beaumont Rag” was first recorded by Cleburne, Texas, fiddler Samuel Morgan Peacock in 1929, under the name Smith’s Garage Fiddle Band.

The tune was popularized by Texas swing fiddler Bob Wills; as well as Doc Watson, who introduced the tune to flatpickers repertoire.


Formed: 1972

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '70s

Tempest has a band name that might suggest a group of sneering, leather-wearing, head-banging metal heads, but the group's music is less threatening and more expansive than its name suggests. Tempest plays traditional Celtic music with a rock & roll intensity that's accented by a wide range of influences from the blues to American country music, Cajun 2-steps, and Arabic music, with some old-time San Francisco psychedelic flair. It's a mix bandleader Lief Sorbye calls "Celtodelic". The band's music,...
