Lime was a synth music outfit from Montréal, Canada. The group was composed of husband and wife Denis and Denyse LePage.

Lime is most noted for its songs "Your Love" (1981 #1 US Dance), "Babe, We’re Gonna Love Tonight" (1982), Guilty (1983),"Angel Eyes" (1983). "Your Love" was featured in the 1982 movie Summer Lovers. Very early in their career, the group released an instrumental 12" single vinyl record called "The Break" under the name Kat Mandu. The single was successful and peaked at number three on the disco chart.[2] Singer Denyse also wrote and sang on the record "Dancin' the Night Away" by Voggue.

The band faded from popularity in the 1990s, and Denis LePage signed over rights to classic Lime royalties[3] before releasing a new album, Love Fury, in 2002. In 1988, Denis and Denyse LePage were divorced. Instead Denis LePage teamed up with several vocalists (Amber Star Chaboyer, Benedict Ouiment, Chubby Tavares, Julie Courchesne, Marie-Piere Vaillancourt, and Mary Lassard)[4] for the final Lime project.

Two younger singers, Joy Dorris and Chris Marsh, were chosen to tour and appear as Lime. Later, Rob Hubertz would replace Chris Marsh. Joy Dorris and Rob Hubertz continue to perform today. Denis LePage from the original Lime has come out as transgender. She now releases records as Nini No Bless.[5]
