Please check out Verity Credit Union, our great partner in the 100 Bands in 100 Days local music showcase.
Music fans of the Pacific Northwest, get ready for our sixth annual year-end daily local music showcase, 100 Bands in 100 Days, where every day until December 31st, we’ll be showcasing a new band or artist you have to know about. For the fourth year in a row, the showcase is once again presented by Verity Credit Union. Make sure you are checking the #100Bands100Days hashtag on Twitter on a daily basis to stay on top of all the bands featured and be sure to follow Verity and NW_Music_Scene on there. Some days the featured act could be an established and locally-adored northwest-based musician and other times they could be a band with a small following that just hasn’t had their deserved time in the spotlight yet. Either way, we’re fairly confident you can come away from this daily segment with plenty of new favorites. Today’s featured act is Limberlost.
About the artist:
Limberlost is an American rock band from Seattle, WA. Behind the crushing vocals of Krystle Pyette and mesmerizing harmonies of Brittany Lauren, the band, consisting of Ricky Dunn on guitar, Ben “Thor” Beman on bass, Anthony Ciarochi on keys and Michael Burt on Drums, use captivating hooks and tenacious grooves to grab your heart and invade your soul. A troop of six vastly different origins who bind together as one, and rise from the mist to permeate every song and performance with passion, love and raw energy.

Limberlost’s bio pretty much says everything you need to know about the band. Each member brings their unique personal musical influences to the jam room and they throw them all in a blender – what results is a dynamic sound all their own and that approach has made them a force to be reckoned with in the greater northwest music scene and beyond. We last featured them in 2017 and since that time they’ve released a new album that helped them accumulate even more accolades, including the ISSA Album Of The Year award and dropped a popular new video (seen above). With a new album set to drop in 2020 that will be produced by Timothy Eaton, whose credits include the Allman Brothers, Queen and Motley Crue, the band has set their already lofty goals even higher and appears to be destined for another breakout year.
For more on today’s featured band, here’s some of what we said so well in 2017:
Limberlost likes to keep things straight and to the point. Assembled in late 2010, what originally started as the guitarist-drummer duo of Mike Burt and Ricky Dunn found itself branching out into a three-piece, and soon thereafter four-piece, rock outfit with a natural gift for writing and belting out equal parts catchy and relentless tunes. Limberlost pride themselves on catchy, but authentic rock tracks that translate perfectly from the studio to the live performance. Lead singer Krystle Pyette’s thunderous, ebullient, but simultaneously emotive vocal delivery gives the band’s music a certain edge, a fire all its own, that makes each of their songs endlessly repeatable.
Always looking to push themselves into newer and bigger territory, 2016 found Limberlost working with producers David Smith and Scotty Olsen, both of Crash Bang Booom Productions, on a series of consistent, in-your-face singles, which did wonders in bringing the band’s reputable live energy to the studio. This year was Limberlost’s first year as a live, touring rock band, and with one stage-owning live performance and festival date after another, the band took on a whole new dynamic as a local live favorite. After that, the band rocked the 2017 Puget Sound Battle of the Bands, where they not only took second place, but helped set an all-time attendance for the event with their commanding stage presence.
