Templeton is one of the TRUE undiscovered talents.” Music Row Magazine's Robert K. Oermann says "Templeton Thompson, love the name. It sounds like the moniker of a star. And, happily, her zesty vocal sounds star-like, too... The catches and breaks in her soprano are as ear-catching as the lilting melody.”
