The Ria Reece Band - Successful Throwback To A Time Of Fantastic Music

Cool Album Of The Day

"...With the amount of musical talent Montreal is churning out, it just might be that there's a new Motown north of the border. The latest off the conveyor belt is a four-piece band hell-bent on instilling in us a reverence for the roots of rhythm and blues. The Ria Reece Band doesn't do half-baked and there is a richness in their instruments and in Ria's gravy-sweet vocals that will appease the staunchest of soul purists."

Music-News

''...The Ria Reece Band's album is a soulful concoction of life, passion and musical flair presented into ten tracks that are either covers of some of the classics or fresh R&B compositions with a modern zest."

"...Clearly this isn't a band full of pretenders who have decided to form something after a casual conversation of boasting to each other that they can play "a bit"; this four-piece band have refined their music making abilities over years of practice, experience and an ear for the powerfulness in the genre."

The Music Universe

"...The first thing you notice when listening to The Ria Reece Band's self-titled debut is its sweetness. Musically it's a top notch, lively bluesy/rock album with plenty of soul and spirituality coming out of Ria herself. If this is the blues for the new generation, may The Ria Reece Band lead the way."

"...Ria Reece has a compelling voice, throaty with a hint of choral grace but enough soulful grit to make the song speak to you fluently."

Le Net Blues

''...Durant la soirée, on avait l'impression d'assister à la naissance d'une étoile dans le firmamant du blues. Un spectacle énergique et très rafraichissant avec une chanteuse envoutante et passionnée qui démontre une belle complicité avec ses musiciens. Si vous aimez le blues et le soul, vous succomberez au charme de Ria Reece sur disque et en spectacle."

Blues Underground Network

"4/5 stars for the Ria Reece Band's Self-Titled debut release. As good as any female fronted Canadian Blues band out there, maybe even a little better."

Tatiblues

"...Les musiciens, André Chevarie à la guitare, Martin Laporte à la batterie et Sylvain Lamothe à la basse, ont sur le disque, tout comme en spectacle, une présence riche qui met la voix de la chanteuse en valeur, comme dans un écrin."

Tatiblues

"...Ria Reece Band comblait la case du troisième soir du volet blues du festival d'été au Petit Impérial et nous avons vu là une talentueuse performer qui en a surpris plusieurs par sa belle présence sur scène et sa voix magnifique."

"...Plusieurs ovations enthousiastes ont ponctué le spectacle, Ria Reece sait faire naître l'émotion du blues avec sa voix tantôt pleine de velours, tantôt éclatante et sa présence sur scène toute féminine et dansante mais aussi pleine d'intensité dramatique quand le moment s'y prête."
