Limberlost is a Female fronted Original Rock Band from the Pacific Northwest with traces of Heart, Led Zeppelin and Deep Purple coursing through their veins! Their goals are simple! Write and produce great songs with Powerful Vocals, Meaningful lyrics, Addictive Hooks, Edgy Guitars and Tenacious Grooves! Songs that translate from studio to stage! Songs that represent the soul of the band! Formed in late 2010, original members, guitarist Ricky Dunn and drummer Mike Burt started to form a vision and create the foundation of the bands mission. Along with a lot of song ideas… Thin Clouds was born among them but it just wasn’t clicking. 2013 enter vocalist Krystle Pyette and the tumblers all fell into place. She was the power punch and collaborator the songs needed! These three together generate a very rare song writing chemistry. 2016 the band was complete with addition of Bassist Ben Beman who brought an instant lockdown to the Rhythm Section and a versatility that is allowing the band to explore new horizons. In Late 2016 after several single releases working with producer/engineer David Smith from Crash Bang Booom Productions, the band hit the ground running! In only their second live show they finished as runner up in the 2016 Seattle Wave Radio Jammin Challenge at the Hard Rock Café!
2017 was the band’s first official year out performing and boy did they. Mixing live rooms and festivals Limberlost has quickly become a local favorite moving from opener to headliner. They also took second in the 2017 Puget Sound Battle of the Bands hosted by The Muckleshoot Casino, Kzok FM and Jack FM helping to set an all-time attendance record for that event and was also a Finalist in the 105.3FM Local Music Project. In July, Limberlost added a new piece to the puzzle. Cirke Cherokee, a finalist in the Danish XFactor has joined the team to provide an incredible back ground vocal punch to Krystle’s already amazing power!
2018 has seen the release of their debut album “Limberlost Volume I” as well as their single “See What You Want” which will be released world-wide along with their first full production video in early 2019. The band also signed a distribution agreement thru Crash Bang Booom Productions, Milton, WA and Perry Music Group, Nashville, TN with Sony/The Orchard. Their presence has reached far beyond the PNW having multiple songs hitting Top 10 rankings on stations from South Africa, Australia and South America as well as becoming somewhat of an internet radio phenom here in the states. The band has also held a regional #1 ranking for the Rock Genre for the entire year as well as #1 National Rank for 3 consecutive months. Their ability to reach new markets and build new fan bases has recently attracted industry interest. In October 2018 the band entered into talks with Paul Crosby from the multi-platinum, Grammy nominated rock band Saliva and in November brought Paul into the team to manage their development and brand. The Band also added the services of Timothy McFarland of Death By Metal MMB to handle the bands Booking and Public Relations. November also saw the introduction of two new permanent members! Anthony Ciarochi took over on keys, which had been a revolving position and Brittany Lauren as the new Backing Vocalist. Their Show line up for 2018 is taking them to new fan bases and bigger stages. The band has assembled a Professional, Internationally respected team of Individuals to assist in their next steps! Stay Tuned as the Limberlost story continues to evolve!! 2019 will be epic!! www.limbelostmusic.com
What makes the band Officially Rock? We love doing what we are doing! We Love each other! We never write anything we can’t perform! and WE TAKE NO PRISONERS!!
What drives the band? Making and performing good rock music. That feeling you get when you know you just wrote a song(s) that will never get tired of playing! Watching fans sing along! Knowing that you can reach people through music.
Who are your main influences? Led Zep, Heart, Deep Purple, Rival Sons
What is your songwriting process? Whatever works! We don’t have one process or a set songwriting “team”. We have a songs that are partial collaborations. We have songs that are a full band mosaic. We have the song that was the never ending warm up jam that one day Krystle said “Hey! I got lyrics for that”. We have songs that one person just shows up one day with it 90% complete. We All write, but I have to give props to Ricky because most the hooks are his creations.
What is your craziest road strory? We played a festival at night by a river and the only light was on the stage. Every Gnat and Mosquito for 20 miles joined our set. You couldn’t open your mouth with out it filling with bugs!!
What is your craziest road story? Same trip…. they drove us 15 miles up into the hills to our negotiated “accommodations”. We could swear we heard faint banjos or maybe chainsaws…. lol
What are your thoughts about the current music business in general? Wow, that’s a loaded question. I’ll say this, If you have great songs, a great brand, are willing to put in the work, trust when needed, treat people well and not let your ego steer the ship of decision making, you can leave a positive mark! The music world is one big wall of sound with all the media that is open to artists and listeners. It takes something special to stick out, so at the minimum, Be Intentional and Be You !!
Where do you see your music career in 10 years? Traveling the world playing with other passionate bands to passionate fans!
In one word, why are you in a music career? Passion (was gonna say “because” lol )
