Biography

Limblifter - featuring Ryan Dahle (vocals/guitar), Megan Bradfield, (bass/vocals), and Eric Breitenbach (drums) - has managed to circumvent the pigeonhole prone music industry to prevail uncategorized with a hard-core fan base intact. With Dahle’s driving guitar lines, distinctive vocals, and poignant, colourfully painted lyrics as the anchor, the band’s continual reinvention is steeped in Dahle’s evolving vision. 

Limblifter has amassed impressive accolades since their inception, including JUNO nods for Alternative Album of the YearBreakthrough Group of the Year, top-charting Canadian radio hits including “Tinfoil”, “Screwed It Up”, “Ariel vs. Lotus”, “Wake Up to the Sun”, 20+ videos, and 4 full-length albums. More importantly than accolades to Dahle, are the countless artists that have approached him to let him know how influential Limbifter was to their artistry.

Dahle has also been a recurring collaborative force behind countless Can-music forays from songwriting with k-os and producing his BLack on BLonde double LP, to producing, songwriting and performing with several notable artists including Hot Hot Heat, Mother Mother, Billy Talent, Wide Mouth Mason, Devin Townsend, and Lee Scratch Perry. Dahle’s music, songwriting, and personality were integral to the chart-topping supergroup project Mounties, alongside Hawksley Workman and Steve Bays. He has mastered over 500 records (under various clever pseudonyms) and more recently, Dahle collaborated with Donny McCaslin on his acclaimed album Blow, co-writing and singing on 4 tracks, and spawning a burgeoning friendship and intuitive musical synergy that continues to this day.
