Biography

Complex organisms that continually evolve, shape-shift and then vanish entirely, only to re-appear in an altered form, can be challenging to define. What if an organism has never been dissected clearly understood or expertly marketed like a can of Coke or a Led Zeppelin?

What now, if this organism avoids catchy mythical cliques like ‘art collective’ or ‘super-group,’ skating by these categories with more credentials than necessary to top each list. While driven by the visceral intangibles that make music genuine, this entity has survived the pigeonhole prone music industry to prevail uncategorized, with a hard-core fan base intact.

Against all friendly advice Ryan Dahle has kept alive a complex, ambiguous organism that he created named Limblifter. Continual re-invention and a revolving door of some of Canada’s best musicians have kept the animal evolving, establishing Ryan as an innovator among artists and fans of many contrasting genres of music.

Limblifter has provided a springboard and served as a template and inspiration to countless indie-rock, art-rock, alternative, modern rock and pop bands alike. Let’s put name-dropping and past associations behind us. With the purpose of rendering any definitions, derived from a list of past-related members, useless, except to illustrate diversity. Current and ex-members of the Limblifter band camp have been or are members of (in-alphabetical order): Age of Electric, Alarmbell, Attics and Cellars, The Black Halos, Black Mountain, Brundlefly, Blood Meridian, By a Thread, Change of Heart, C’mon, Fancey, A.C. Newman, The Salteens, Spanking Betty, Sparrow, The Spitfires, Matthew Good, Mounties, The New Pornographers, Small Sins and Sloan.
