Quotes:

“Remember when Serena Ryder was just starting to gain international acclaim? When people would see her play a small gig and say, “She’s going to go somewhere?” That’s where Edmonton’s own Rebecca Lappa is at right now. With her singular take on folk rock, she’s dangling on the precipice of becoming a household, Western Canadian name.” Stephan Boissonneault, Vue Weekly, Aug 2018

“The creativity and heart you brought to your winning song was truly inspirational” Lois Mitchell, Lieutenant Governor of Alberta, March 2017
