“Canada over the years has brought about some great superstars of music, like Shania Twain and Justin Bieber. Now we have another great artist coming from Canada, and he has the ability to be the greatest yet. Lyric Dubee will be, “Canada”s Newest Superstar”!” TOMMY NEAL, STARS2COME.COM
“Lyric Dubee is the real deal. I love this young mans talent, work ethic and current song list which is light years beyond everything I heard! He has the song writing ability of Taylor Swift and a young Bryan Adams combined with the youthfulness of Justin Beiber and the guitar playing and blues knowledge of Colin James. He is the embodiment of the future of music in Canada.” MICHAEL WILLIAMS, JOURNALIST, RECORD PRODUCER & MEDIA PERSONALITY
“Looking like a cross between a hay tossin’ farm boy and a surfer dude, Lyric could easily be mistaken for another Bieberlike. Until he starts playing and singing and it comes to mind this is a whole different thing.” LENNY STOUTE, DIGITAL JOURNAL
