I’m a music producer and I have worked with the likes of….Aerosmith, Ozzy, Ringo Starr, and many more, so its rare that I get moved by an artist. I LOVE THIS ALBUM ! David Rudbarg throws down old blues. great rock, and a sensitive ballad as good as anybody out there! I put on the C.D every morning, so I can get ready to go out and kick some musical ass ! In a time when the record “biz” in such turmoil, this album gives a glimmer of hope, that a great, honest voice can make a difference…….and it does.

“Dave’s album takes me to Chicago bars and Memphis clubs and New Orleans’ streets. Soulful American sounds.”

From the opening bars of a revved up cover of Leaving on a Jet Plane through the last notes of Whenever You Come Around, Dave Rudbarg takes the listener on a tour of his take of rock, blues and soul. His backing band is great but the star of this CD is Rudbarg’s voice. The best surprise on the album is Dave’s original
song “Living in the Land of Yes.”

“Dave Rudbarg sings and plays with that rough vocal sound that wakes you up and calms you down. It is rock and poetry stirring in a cup of soul.”

I just have to say, I BOUGHT DAVE’S CD A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO AND I LOVE IT!! My favorite barista is also a bad-ass blues singer. Opening with a high octane version of “Leaving on a Jetplane” was bold, and it paid off. Living in the Land of Yes is an amazing original, and I love “Whenever You Come Around” with Christine Smith. This cd is also beautifully produced…this is no basement demo. It’s a great sounding disc that will do your sound system justice. Great songs, great band, GREAT BIG VOICE!! I’m really enjoying this cd, Dave. Great stuff!

Dave’s voice has the growl of a bluesman and the depth of a church organ: it’s Van Morrison and John Lee Hooker digging for gold in the back alley. This is a guy whose voice is as big as his heart. Go ahead
and Listen to the Lion.

“This is one of the best soul collections you will hear. Dave has a voice full of rage and tenderness, with such a feel for the roots of this wonderful music. His band is perfectly balanced and together they fill these songs with power and joy. A complete delight. Thank you Dave!” .

Dave’s album is a great ride. It’s got funk, it’s got soul,
it’s raw, genuine and honest. I know what a labor of love it is to put
your own work out there. Bravo!

“Dave Rudbarg’s voice is a full blown weather report , whether its the thunder he exudes in songs like “The Groom’s Still Waiting at the Altar” and “All about You”, or the break of the storm that is “Living in the Land of Yes”. He takes you into the eye of the storm but leaves you basking in the sun. A must have.”

“Dave Rudbarg’s new CD LIVING IN THE LAND OF YES wowed me.
His heavy, soulful voice is a powerful as two Mack Trucks rolling down Highway
10 to visit the most special girl the Mississippi Queen.”

If you wanna hear ballads that will tear you’re heart out,you gotta hear Dave Rudbarg’s latest musical offering”Living In The Land Of Yes”. Like getting hit with a handfull of M80’s! Great music.

This guy’s got a voice, he’s got passion, and he writes. Dave Rudbarg is an introspective person and an observer of life, and love. What’s most evident on this CD, however, is that he plays the games of life and love with heart, with fervor, and with intensity. This shines through in his performance on each passionate… minute of this album.”
