“Slow down, you say, it’s not a race,” sings Thomas Calder, on When Will, the beguiling opening number from The Trouble With Templeton’s debut album, Bleeders.
Whoever’s advice it was, it’s clear the just-turned-21-year-old Calder didn’t take it – and for that we should be thankful.
We hear a lot about talented youngsters these days, and while many of them can indeed be scientifically proven to be young, it’s in the talent department that we are often left wanting. This is not the case here, and even the most cursory airing of Calder’s striking full-length debut will leave the listener with no doubt in their mind: The Trouble With Templeton is special.
Perhaps such precociousness is to be expected from someone who names their solo project after an episode of The Twilight Zone, but Calder is no wet-behind-the-ears beginner, having been writing and performing songs since his early teens. “I’m very thankful I started at a young age,” he says, “because I’ve been afforded the time to solidify my taste and have confidence in the music I love and want to make. I’m very clear on who I am as a musician and what I’m passionate about today.”

“The most engaging and moving things in life are often those that begin as the smallest or most unassuming. And so, when such things grow and boldly proclaim their presence, they are all the more impressive and affecting. "Bleeders" starts at the root and ends high in the air, spread out like the branches and foliage of an oak tree. It's the sound of the mind and soul overcoming pain, of growing past the weight of such emotion.”

‘“Bleeders” is a sensational song full of emotion, every single piece of the song lends itself perfectly to delivering the story within. Thomas Calder is the voice and wonder that is otherwise known as “The Trouble With Templeton” and his song “Bleeders” is bursting with passion, agony and intensity. The strings give it a deep depth and Thomas’ voice is smooth and gentle but he can fill a line with a cold ruthlessness if need be, that is what makes this song stand out from other singer songwriter productions. As well, the mood of the song shifts throughout and the quicker tempo lifts the song into a new found ferocity letting off all the rage and scorn that the song relates to.” www.ausnewmusicblog.wordpress.com
