Live Improvised Musical Storytelling.

Nothing like making up songs about Batman, rain, the truth and current events on the fly.

Children at heart who love comedic, poetic, theatric, yet at times provocative storytelling alongside truly magical music, should prepare themselves for the surprising world of...


An Adventure of FARTS (FUSED ARTS)


Ronley Teper's Lipliners began as a monthly residency at the legendary Tranzac club in Toronto. Teper invited a rotating roster of some of Toronto's finest musicians, animators, and video artists to publicly improvise around her songs and storytelling. This process has developed a body of work that touches on a wide range of stylistic influences from folk, funk, jazz, cinematic, theatric comedy and pop music and that listeners compare to artists like Tom Waits, Mary Margaret O'Hara, Frank Zappa, and Kate Bush.


Ronley was born in South Africa and grew up in Toronto. A musician and performance artist, she has been an active member in the arts scene for almost two decades. Over this time, she has recorded 5 independent LP's; composed, and performed works for puppet theatre in both Summerworks and Fringe Festivals in Toronto and Montreal; she has had musical placements in television, documentary films, advertising, and a few video games. In early 2010, she was invited as a guest speaker at the first TEDx talks in Bangkok, Thailand, and took the opportunity to organize vocal improvisation music workshops for middle school children in International Schools and to perform throughout the country. Since then Teper has participated in a variety of collaborations and artist's residencies from Reykjavik, Iceland, to Guadalajara, Mexico both performing and exhibiting works.

An Almost Childlike fascination for experimentation"

Steve Baylin, Ottawa Citizen

And the Juno for best alternate universe goes to....Ronley Teper. Brilliant. Fantastic"

Bob Wiseman (producer, composer, musician)

Ronley is a superfreak...I really like her music and her overall vibe."

Jaymz Bee - Jazz FM


Very few artists have the artistic fortitude displayed by Ronley. In fact, dare I say, no one rivals her style as it is all her own. A visionary with stories to tell and the ability to leave your jaw agape."

Derek Downham (producer, mulit-instrumentalist)

Ronley. she's way cool, a brilliant performer, tunesmith, vocalist and pied piper, the spirit of musical adventure and nirvana in a nutshell. I rank her among the best anywhere."

Happy Matzah eating to all those celebrating this week! Here's a comedic and modern version of the Ma Nishtana - translated as The Four Questions. The tradition of the passover seder and the reading of the Hagadah is a universal Jewish tradition. This song  is usually sung by the youngest child - however a galactic piece of matzah poses the questions in this modern interpretation. Bon appetite!

Lipliners Live Recordings Recorded over 2 nights last September at the Piston: Over the past 4 years The Lipliners improvised shows were the drive behind Ronley's most recent compositions.

Known as a live band experience, it made sense to finally do a live recording.
