Kurt Colin Dahle is a Canadian musician best known for his work as a drummer and vocalist with the rock bands Age of Electric, Limblifter, and The New Pornographers.

Born in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, Dahle first became known in Canadian music circles as a member of the band Age of Electric, along with his brother Ryan Dahle and another set of brothers, Todd Kerns and John Kerns.[1] Age of Electric spawned a handful of minor hit singles in Canada, earning a Juno Award nomination for "Best New Artist" in 1998, nine years after the band was formed.

Kurt and brother Ryan began working on a side project, Limblifter, and released a self-titled album in 1996, which contained a trio of top-40 Canadian rock radio hits. After the dissolution of Age of Electric in 1999, Limblifter released a second album, Bellaclava in 2000. Kurt soon left the band to focus on his work with The New Pornographers, who gained much critical acclaim for their albums Mass Romantic (2000), Electric Version (2003), Twin Cinema (2005), Challengers (2007), and Together (2010).

Dahle tours with New Pornographers bandmate Neko Case and played on her acclaimed solo album, The Worse Things Get, the Harder I Fight, the Harder I Fight, the More I Love You. Dahle has also recorded and/or performed live with Stevie Jackson (Belle and Sebastian), Destroyer, Chris Walla (Death Cab for Cutie), Kathryn Calder, The Evaporators, The Awkward Stage, Bloody Chicletts, Zuckerbaby, The Choir Practice, Nathan, Mother Mother, The Tennessee Twin, Mark Kleiner Power Trio, Fancey and Flash Bastard.[2][3][4]
