ROY FORBES
Critical Acclaim


The St. Paul Press & Dispatch
"a folkie's sense of tradition and commitment and a full-blown rocker's sense of dynamics."


The Toronto Star
"a high keening voice that has no equal in popular music."


The Vancouver Province
"The writing is intelligent, insightful, lyrical and uncannily wise as to the ways of the human condition ... there is a heart tugging honesty in Roy Forbes' voice to which I, at least, never fail to respond. There is also the pure joy of singing."


The Ottawa Citizen
"it's a voice that sounds timeless and brand new"


The Regina Leader Post
"simply as good as music gets."


The Ottawa Citizen
"if you've never heard a robin weep, you've never heard Roy Forbes."


The Toronto Star
It has never been anything less than a major pleasure to listen to new songs by Forbes, a craft-conscious writer who remains one of the truest troubadours in the Canadian mosaic.


The Times Colonist (Victoria)
He's absorbed all of his influences and developed into a totally original, dynamic, exciting performer of deeply resonant lyrics. He's a Canadian hero.
