Hailing from Oslo, Norway, founding member and lead singer/electric mandolinist, Lief Sorbye is recognized as a driving force in the modern folk-rock movement. He started Tempest after years of touring and recording on the folk circuit.
San Francisco native fiddler Lee Corbie-Wells comes to the band with a special passion for Celtic and Scandinavian music and Gaelic language traditions. A touring and performing child of a musical family, she plays fiery traditional fiddle tunes, and is also known to keep a bit of blues and folk improvisation up her sleeve.
Nikolay Georgiev studied modern rock guitar under Martin Goulding at the Guitar Institute of Technology in London, U.K. and classical guitar performance in his native Bulgaria. Nikolay brings a fresh and global flavor to Tempest’s brand of world music.
The latest addition to the band is the seasoned Bass Player Hugh Caley. He is a Michigan transplant, who brings energy, genuine enthusiasm and a damn fine kilt to this frisky iteration of Celtic and roots music.
Cuban-born drummer Adolfo Lazo, an original Tempest member, thickens the band’s sound with inventive rhythms, and rock-steady drumming.
