Pete recorded recorded 2 CD’s with the Douglas Watson R&B Revue. In 2007 the band received the TBS New Talent Award for, ‘Voodoo Healing’, It was a big success, and launched the band. The CD, ‘Broken Hearted Man’ came out in 2014 and was nominated for a Maple Blues Award & received extensive airplay worldwide. He has guest credits on over 6 other CD’s, among them, Pat Temple & High Lonesome Players, On stage appearances with Jeff Healy, Pat Rush, Jack DeKeyzer, Mel Brown, Chuck Jackson, Cheryl Lescom to name a few.

After Pete left The Douglas Watson Band, he joined up with Orangeville favorite, Roots Blues Artist, Mo’ Kauffey. They started a duo in Sept. 2014, called ‘Kauffey/Temple’. They were instantly sought after for Roots & Blues festivals. Pete was a perfect fit, complementing Mo’s Roots, Blues, and Country style. Unfortunately Mo’ passed away just as they finished their first recording, ‘Honey Be’. The CD has received critical acclaim with great reviews, and leaves a lasting legacy for Mo’.
