Praise for Tempest Gold

Chris Young- Editor in Chief  Vortex Music Magazine " El-korek is a songwriter with an earnest, passionate intensity for his craft. As Tempest Gold, his debut Little Beasts draws from the catchy pop rock of the 80's, containing flashes of Bowie and Love and Rockets." 


Veronica Bisesti- Host of 99.1 fm "Subculture" described herself as "kind of starstruck" at the drop-in session performance calling Ravenous "an incredible song".

Inessa Anderson- Oregon Music Hall of Fame and host of Robin Rd. Podcast called Little Beasts "a gorgeous EP" with vocals "out of this world".


Paul Laxer- Engineer (Typhoon) Mixer (1939 Ensemble) "Songs are terrific, sounds timeless; like it was recorded decades ago and lost time."

Dan Cable- Host of Dan Cable Presents Podcast

On the track Night After Night, "The Pacific Northwest can be a dark and grey time...this is the perfect jam to listen to up here in the winter time."
