"Newcomer Raine is a Canadian rocker with a rasp voiced attack reminiscent
Alannah Myles. She exudes mucho aggression within the tracks blues soaked pop instrumentation, which leans heavily
on crunchy rhythm guitar chords and whirling organ lines. The songs immediately contagious chorus pushes this
potential winner over the top and makes this a viable contender for top 40 and album rock radio play" - Larry Flick,
(Review & Previews (for Raine's song 'Drives Me Wild')

Thanks for submitting the material for the evaluation. I enjoyed listening to the songs.
To give you insight to the scoring scale above, the majority of artists score in the 2.5 to 3.5 range
in the various categories. Whenever an artist sees a 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3 or 3.5 as a score in a certain
category (or categories) it means that's an area I feel they need to improve
and develop. When someone sees 4, 4.5 or 5 as their score in a category, that tells them, to me,
they are in the professional league and have strong potential. It's a validation from a pro, letting you know you are doing a fine job. Every artist should work hard to earn 4.5 to 5 in every category. It's a very competitive business and people averaging in the 3's (or less) will probably not get too far without a great deal of improvement and development. I don't give out 4's and 5's easily, so any of those you see, you have earned. Well done!" Eugene Foley
