“Did you ever just have the feeling you were in the company of greatness? For instance, I wonder what the people in Elvis’s high school thought when they first heard him sing. Chills right? Well that’s what I got when I first heard and then saw Lyric Dubee.” JOHN REIGN – CRANK IT UP MAGAZINE, USA
“Dubee could well be the next Jon Bon Jovi: equally at home and confident writing his own songs, composing with others, and performing in various genres like the seasoned entertainer that he already is. It’s when he steps out of his comfort zone, however, that he truly lets his genius bloom.” LAURIER TIERNAN – METROPOLIS MAGAZINE, Japan
Combat of Love Album review: “I like this “Combat Of Love!” … It has some damned good guitar work + lyrics set to what I would call a semi – rock beat! … Pleasing to the ear & containing just enough emotion to keep you coming back for another listen! … Can’t wait to hear some more of this guys work!” COUNT, MUSIC DIRECTOR AT WAYOUTRADIO.CO.UK
2014 Black Ice Single Review “Lyric continues to outdo himself with each and every song. He is a lot like Eric Clapton, you never know what is coming, but when it gets there it blows you away… He is going to become a legend.” TOMMY NEAL – STARS2COME.COM
