"I am writing to tell you how much my husband and I enjoyed your concert in Fredericton last October. We think you are exceptionally talented, a great entertainer, and have a promising career shinning in your future. All the best at the Juno's! We will be rooting for you from our home in Keswick Ridge,NB. Perhaps we will catch another of your performances before you head off to St. John's in April. Continue to do what you love. Your passion is your gift to self and others. Linda and Brian Morehouse
"Just a note to tell you how much my wife and I enjoyed you last night. We went to see Valdy having seen him before but we were more than impressed with you. We are looking forward to seeing you again. We are purchasing your CD online tonight and look forward to listening to your new one when it comes out. Once again, thanks for a wonderful evening."
- Peter Fullerton (Re: Opening performnace for Valdy in Sackville)
"Just got home from what I thought was going to be a chance to see Valdy....(being a fan since the '70's) and was so happy it was more than that! It was soooo much more than that! Your voice is amazing and so pleasing. I really enjoyed your show!"
- Danielle Sherman (Re: Opening performance for Valdy in Annapolis Royal, NS)
"Hi Jessica, your performance on Friday night at the Fredericton Playhouse dazzled me! I'm really excited about your music and your career - I'm sure you're destined for great things. I bought one of your Short Stories CDs and am really enjoying it. I also got your great poster that is so reminiscent of one of Bob Dylan's from the 1960s, and am going to put it up in my kitchen to remind me every day that dreams need to be followed. " - Nancy Martin (Re: Opeing performance for Valdy @ The Playhouse, Fredericton NB)
"I heard you this evening at the Lord Nelson and I just wanted you to know that my friend Donna and I thought you were great. I like the fact of the "sing-a-long" and that your music tells a story. You have a beautiful voice that is easy to listen to. Thank-you for your support of Breast Cancer (my friend had one of hers removed and I remember what she went through, She is cancer free 6 years now so we say thanks to God.) Good Luck in your career." - A new "old" fan - Joan Chestnut
"The songs are rich with hooks and the voice has a husky, breathy quality that signposts raw sensuality. A daunting beauty, it’s a voice that sounds like it actually belongs to the face." - Manchester Evening News, UK
"Rhaye, whose second album, Short Stories, has been nominated for various awards, was a more introspective performer. Her songs, which hinged on emotional dramas and relationship issues, were delicate constructs." – LONDON TIMES, UK
"It takes more than a great voice to charm an audience; a little sincerity and soul like Rhaye’s go a long way." – TorontoIndie.com
"Rhaye’s storytelling approach to songwriting and affable personality meshed well in a live setting, as she connected the dots and personal inspirations behind her lyrics." – TorontoIndie.com
