Jon Hiseman

1944 -2018

Legendary drummer and Temple Music founder Jon Hiseman tragically passed away in June 2018 after a short battle with an aggressive brain tumour.  In his 35 years at the helm Jon was loved by everyone who worked here.  He had a knack for making every client feel special and he would work to the same exacting standards on a three minute demo as he would on a landmark album.

Temple Music Studio continues to follow his vision.  We no longer have his guiding hand but his spirit is in the wires.
