Playing together since 2013, their intimate live show contains both originals and inspired covers from folk, pop, rock and country genres. Putting their own spin on music everyone knows and loves from Johnny and June Carter Cash, Bob Dylan, Emmylou Harris, and Tom Waits, to The Cure, Ron Sexsmith, John Prine, Leonard Cohen, The Beatles and Nick Cave.

Ronley Teper as a monthly residency at the Tranzac club in Toronto.
Teper invited a rotating roster of some of Toronto's finest musicians
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 have compared to artists like Tom Waits, Mary
Margaret O'Hara, Frank Zappa, and Kate Bush. She will be joined at
Caper's by multi instrumentalist Tim Posgate.
"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"
