Temperton attended the De Aston School in Market Rasen. He was one of the original members of the popular funk/disco band, Heatwave. With the band, he helped compose some of the group's big-selling singles including "Boogie Nights", "Groove Line" and the memorable ballad, "Always and Forever". All three tracks were million-sellers in the U.S.
In 1979, he teamed up with Quincy Jones and Michael Jackson to help conceive what became Jackson's first solo album in four years, and his first full-fledged solo release for Epic Records, entitled Off The Wall. In 1982, Temperton wrote three songs, including the title track, for Jackson's next LP, Thriller, which became the biggest-selling album of all time.
Temperton was nominated for an Oscar for a song on the soundtrack of the film, The Colour Purple, as the co-writer of the song "Miss Celie's Blues (Sister)".
