From the USA's famous Music Row in Nashville TN, retro rock band Incognito Cartel is making waves with their jangle pop rock sound, which is heavily influenced from the great early '60s bands such as the Byrds, Hollies, Animals, and the '80s jangle pop of Tom Petty. The largely up-tempo songs are heavily flavored with jangly guitars, '60s retro keyboards, and hypnotic 2, 3, and 4 part harmonies.

The band's fan base is growing in leaps and bounds, fueled by the September 2016 release of their debut CD "In a World Upside Down." In less than 8 months, their Facebook fan page has grown from 400 to over 3,000 fans, with many more on Reverbnation. 


Incognito Cartel is the brainchild of songwriters/guitarists Tom Templeman and Steve Rempis, who both desired to play in a band again after years of being indie songwriter/artists. They were quickly joined by Tom's wife, veteran bassist Terri Templeman, and mutual friend, keyboardist/songwriter Don Gaylord. After a lengthy search for a permanent drummer, the band recently welcomed Neil Pond, a long time veteran of the Nashville live music scene.


In a sea of overdone musical genres, Incognito Cartel is breaking new ground with a sound that has been sorely missed in the music industry. The band's rising success has come from their internet fans as well as a loyal local following from their live shows, having already landed a featured artist slot on the first Saturday each month at Nashville's famous Ri'chard's Cafe. Incognito Cartel would like to tour one day, but in the meantime plans to continue building success as a recording artist and a regional indie performing act.
