 About Out On A Limb Records

Out On A Limb Records is an independent record label started in Limerick City, Ireland. The label was set up in the summer of 2003 (July 3rd to be precise) with the release of “Is it OK to be loud, Jesus?”, the debut album from local band giveamanakick. The label was founded by Richard Bourke and Albert Twomey, both prominent members of the since defunct Aspersion Music Collective (AMC). They were joined at the end of 2003 by Ciarán Ryan.

2003 also saw the arrival of Cork outfit Rest to the label with their contribution to a split Christmas single with gamak. Since those two, a heap of other acts have joined the label. They include: Waiting Room, Ten Past Seven, windings, Hooray For Humans, Crayonsmith, Owensie, Hidden Highways, Elk, Jogging, and Peter Delaney. Acts such as Berkeley, Vertigo Smyth, C!ties, and Guilty Optics have also featured on split 7s released by the label.

To date, the label has released 16 albums, 4 EPs, 5 7s, and a number of other bits n’ bops. The last few years have been quite prolific for the label – along with a windings 7″ and Hidden Highways EP, 2012 saw the release of LPs from Jogging (Take Courage), Owensie (Citizens) and the Choice-nominated I Am Not The Crow from windings. This year they’ve released the long awaited second album from Rest (I Hold The Wolf) and the new album from Peter Delaney (Witch Bottle). Two new albums are due for release in the Autumn – the debut album from Hidden Highways and the keenly anticipated follow up to 2008’s White Wonder from Crayonsmith.

Out On A Limb Records is still based in Limerick, and since 2009, all aspects of the label have been run by label partners, Richard Bourke and Ciarán Ryan.
