Dollars and Dimes, the fifth studio record from Austin, Texas-based songwriter Owen Temple, is a collection of eleven songs about people making their way through hard times in the different regions of North America.

The project includes songs written by Owen Temple and co-writes with Adam Carroll, Gordy Quist (of the Band of Heathens), Scott Nolan and others.

A concept album focused on regional incarnations of continent-wide drama, Dollars and Dimes was produced by multi-instrumentalist Gabe Rhodes (Billy Joe Shaver, Kimmie Rhodes). Temple’s lyrics present eleven portraits of characters and the places they inhabit and are backed by a top notch band made up of Hunt Sales (Iggy Pop, David Bowie) on drums and Will Sexton (Terry Allen, Randy Weeks) on bass, and Rhodes on guitar and keys.

Praise for Owen Temple and previous projects:

"Great lyrics full of insight and plainspoken poetry."
-J. Poet, All Music Guide

"His songs, even the rowdy ones, barrel straight through the roadhouse on the way to better, safer places, like the center of a woman's heart. He has a curl of Townes Van Zandt's spoken-word style of singing, which lifts the sincerity and power of his lyrics."
-Andy Moore, No Depression

"Owen Temple combines his heart and intellect to create music that hits the bull's-eye of the country soul."
-Vintage Guitar Magazine

"a delightful array of lyric driven songs on Two Thousand Miles."
-The9513.com

"Owen Temple writes polished country music, infused with folk traditions. What distinguishes his songs are lyrics that extend the plainspoken stories associated with the genre into a more nuanced psychological terrain."
- Isthmus (Madison, WI)
