Tempo O'Neil is a multi faceted vocalist who has established himself as a sought after singer across the varied genres of dance music.
Tempo originally started singing on a Reggae sound systems at the age 14 and progressed to Unity Sound with Demon Rocker and Flinty Badman (Shut up & dance). The opportunity to sing for Saxon Sound System was a natural career progression and he was soon touring nationally and internationally from the UK to Jamaica, and performing amongst top acts such as Maxi Priest, Smiley Culture, Tipper Ire & Daddy Freddy.
Involved in the dance music business since the early days of Acid House and having worked with a host of record labels including, Big City Records, Just For You London, Brain Records (Body Snatch) , Everyday Junglist and (S.O.U.R.) the producers of Shy FX, UK Apache, TuffJam (You’re my Inspiration EVA & Keep Holdin), London connection and Bagleys studio label Crosstracks (Zomba) Tempo was now firmly a go to artist for writing vocals, Tempos songs in reggae always had a soulful edge, and this sound led him further in to the house music scene.
After recording and working in studios in London and teaming with up Carl Macintosh of Loose Ends who was a true inspiration to Tempo he knew he had enough experience, knowledge and talent to move forward and start to produce his own music and run his own music label Liberation.
