"Her hilarious lyrics are paired with theatrical vocal delivery, ranging from her high, squeaky, little-girl voice to a low, throaty growl. It's territory not commonly explored by female singers"

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

"Performance is the key to understanding Ronley Teper. A multidisciplinary artist who's bounced around the Toronto scene since the early oughts, live performance, often improvised, is the tie that binds her many phases and iterations."

"In der Beschreibung vom Waggon, wo das spätere Konzert stattfand, wurde von einer tollen, impulsiven Frontfrau geschrieben, die „etwas
ausgeflippt“ ist…. Das konnte ich mir dann leider in meinen Aufschrieben erst halb durchlesen, während die Sendung schon lief. Manchmal ist zwischen den ganzen Pressejobs nicht genügend Zeit, um sich angemessen intensiv mit der jeweiligen Thematik zu beschäftigen. Auf der anderen Seite wird man dadurch auch immer wieder interessant überrascht."

“The One and Ronley.  Canadian Indie-singer/songwriter Ronley Teper has a unique sound that defies comparison with anyone, just saying she's got some freaky stuff happening melodically and sings like a wild thing, doesn't really prepare you for what you are about to hear".
Kathryn Nikolaychuk, Calgary Herald's Swerve Magazine
