“From the opener on, Rue’s music sets sharp hooks…”
San Francisco Examiner

“…songs carry the craft and know-how of someone who has listened to and learned from some of pop’s best lyricists and melody makers."
(Twin Cities) City Pages

"…vibrant, catchy, exciting melodies.”
(San Francisco) Bay Area Express

“…these songs are a clear cut above the usual…each one features at least one major-league moment, phrase or hook…”
Minneapolis Star Tribune

Super songs…coarse, energetic poetry and unexpected vulnerability.”
San Jose Mercury News
