The band debuted in 2018 with the album “Limberlost, Vol. 1.” They found an international audience for their distinct mix of modern and classic styles.

On October 23rd the group released the song’s video which views the track’s theme on a global scale.

8 Questions with Krystle Pyette of Limberlost
Where are you from?
I’ve lived in the Pacific Northwest for almost all of my life, and I currently reside in the South Puget Sound area.
How long have you been making music?
I don’t remember a time when making music wasn’t just part of my everyday life. There were always instruments around when I was a kid, and it was fun to pick them up and make nice sounds. I took a few years of piano then, but my main focus has been vocals and guitar since I was a teen.
Who are the musicians involved in your project?
We have Mike Burt on Drums, Ben Beman on Bass, Ricky Dunn on lead guitar, and Anthony Ciarrochi on keys. Vocals would be me, Krystle Pyette, and Brittany Lauren, who also does all of the arrangement for harmony backing vocals for the rest of the band.
Who are your biggest musical influences?
As a band we span a few generations, but you can definitely hear our roots in classic rock like Zeppelin and Heart.
What is your greatest non-musical influence?
That would be my family. They are patient and supportive, and see me through my many ups and downs.
What inspired you to create this project?
Mike and Ricky had been playing together and trying to put together a project for some time when I met up with them at a church we were all attending. We built a band that played music for the church but also started working on our own original material. I think the synergy we found in creating our own sound and our love for making music really pushed us to start recording and putting our music out there.
What are your plans for the future (musically)?
We are working to further our reach geographically and connect with those awesome people who become “fan family.” It’s a relationship with those folks, and their invaluable support that makes it possible and worthwhile to keep making new music. We released an album this past summer called Good Fight, but we are already back in the studio working on that next batch of fresh music.
Is there anything else you would like to say?
We truly are where we are due to the people who came alongside us in this journey. It’s a competitive industry and we do what we can to work hard and do the things that will make us even more successful, but it’s the behind-the- scenes support and the connection with people that really keep us going. My only regret on this ride would be ever losing perspective and failing to value those people more than any of the other accomplishments that happen along the way.
