Glen Ballard, Producer of Alanis Morissette
Jagged Little Pill
"I've been attending C.M.W for three years now, and Ive fallen in love with the Canadian music scene. I always do my panel on songwriting and production with Glen Ballard, (Alanis M. Michael Jackson) and we are honored to spread our knowledge and luck with our fellow writer/producer friends. BUT.... The best part of the week for me is to hit the streets and hear the new, great music that's happening in Canada. Im a rock guy (Aerosmith, Ozzy, Ringo Starr) so Glen and I checked out about ten bands and one artist stood out to me....RUTHIE LAMB. Ive heard her music before, but I think now she's ready to be a Big star. She has worked on her craft to the point where she rocked my world! The songwriting was great. She is a girl who's not afraid to say what's on her mind or in her heart, and that was a huge step. The band was tight and kicked butt, and Ruthie sang her own songs as if they already sold millions. Her confidence and stage presence blew me away. And if I could be a "fan" and a "man" for a moment.....She was nice on the eyes too! In other words, the whole package was happening. She can only get better, and I know she will. Ive already asked to write with her, because I would bring my "Aerosmith" chops to her, and I think the world needs a female Steven Tyler, and she just might fit in .....(minus the lips) Anyway, I love C.M.W and ....Ruthie Lamb".
Peace, Mark Hudson

Steve Kane, President of Warner Music Canada

"A two-song demo landed on my desk recently by this unknown Hamilton-born singer. It left me wondering why this talented country/rock/pop artist hadn't been picked up by a big label long ago. Patience. It won't be long. Ruthie has a sound that will knock your socks off. Check out the song City of Lost Souls on our online Best Bets ( www.thespec.com). Ruthie Lamb and her band play It's Your Festival at 4 p.m. Sunday, Gage Park bandshell."
Live Tour Artists
"I saw Ruthie Lamb perform live at the Horseshoe in Toronto, recently, and was captivated by her voice, enthusiasm and stage presence. Her big booming voice draws you in. She has great songwriting talent and with the appropriate financial assistance, will become a successful Canadian artist. She just needs the opportunity to shine and I have every belief she is an upcoming Canadian talent who will make Canada and the music industry proud."
"When I first met Ruthie Lamb I was of the impression that she would be making her way to the top. And now that I've heard Ruthie's new recording and witnessed her perform, I anticipate the inevitable rise of success."
President and CEO of Slaight Communications
"I have had the opportunity of meeting and listening to the music of Ruthie Lamb and found both enchanting. Ruthie has a unique and powerful voice which lends itself extremely well to Country / Rock. Her songwriting and singing obviously come from the heart which she is able to reflect in her onstage persona and which makes for a very entertaining and exciting performance."
"I've known Ruthie for many years and have been to her shows here in Toronto. I've also featured her on 680 News she is without a doubt one of Canada's most outstanding performers, male or female. Her shows are always high energy and entertaining and her music is raw and sensual. She's one of Canada's best kept secrets and it's time Canadians discover this talented artist. I support Ruthie Lamb because if there's anyone who deserves to be recognized it’s her!"
National Executive Director - The Foundation Fighting Blindness
"I had the pleasure of meeting Ruthie Lamb in June 2004 at her first " Ride For Sight" performance. We quoted her performance in our newsletter as "The crowd was right, Ruthie Rocks, 98 pounds of dynamite". When she performed in 2005, it was in front of 2000 people as a featured performer with headliners the Road Hammers and she wowed them again.
Ruthie has an undeniable talent and star quality. In a public venue, she captivates all listeners. She truly deserves the chance to have Canada hear her voice and see her outstanding performance. I support Ruthie in her career. This girl can rock!!"
President Novelty Roads

Although I don't usually handle emerging artists, I am so impressed with not only Ruthie's talent and marketability, but also her passion and drive to reach her goals and our company would like to offer our services once she has a full CD to market with a distribution deal."
"Ruthie, you gave such a powerful performance. Thank you for such a great show. You are so talented and you really do Rock!!!"
