Great Tracks! Strong Country vocals! Melissa Etheridge meet Wynona Judd!"
- esse Boartfield


"If the key to longevity is having your own sound, she certainly has that. Her deep, raspy tone and passion give her songs an attitude that moves her audience and molds her trademark style. It’s the heart of the Netty Mac Band, Mac herself, who writes those great lyrics and tells stories of the happy and the not-so-pleasant realities of life."
- Beacon News - Beacon News


"Powerfully wonderful vocals! Netty has that radio ready rasp and probably can sing the phone-book! Would love to see her live!! " - Larry Migliore, Diamond member of The Songwriters Guild Of America, NSAI and BMI


Netty Mac's bad a** country rock is hard and lots of fun! Just in time for the Super Bowl "Punt With No Regrets" is a honkey tonk anthem with great backing vocals and super tight instrumental prowess. And just as quickly, a ballad is heard in "Please Help Me" showing the artist's range from bar-band tough act to soft, tender emo excellence. - A&R Select


"Talk about putting "a bounce in yer bum!" Netty and her Train hurls out the tunes and puts their enthusiasm straight into your lap. This lady will blast out the last of the wintertime grinches for you. A must-see! One of our SpringFest favourites." - East Coulee Music Festival


"Talk about putting "a bounce in yer bum!" Netty and her Train hurls out the tunes and puts their enthusiasm straight into your lap. This lady will blast out the last of the wintertime grinches for you. A must-see! One of our SpringFest favourites." - East Coulee Music Festival

"Nerty Mac does not wait for life to come to her she gets out there grabs it by the horns and wrestles with it till she wins. Netty is the definition of entertainment, she has fire, she engages the crowd and her delivery has sent chills up my spine." - Barleys Productions


“Netty Mac... She and her style are refreshing to hear in a world full of the Same Ole Same Ole. She and her band will Rock Your socks off!” - The Off Road Show


We had the pleasure of having Netty Mac play for our company Stampede BBQ as well as a private Stampede Bash at our acreage. We couldn't be happier - the band created the perfect atmosphere for the party we were hosting and even got the crowd dancing and singing along. Very professional and accommodating, a true pleasure to work with and know. Great music & entertainment, looking forward to next year - Aker Solutions


"Hey Netty, What a great unique sound you have. Good to hear something fresh! Good luck with the CD project." - The Calgary BluesHounds


"Netty Mac's lyrics are one that her fans can relate to, they are about losing someone, finding someone, not taking life for granted and friendship, and if you are not yet a fan one listen and you soon will be."
- Little C Talman, The Opinion (Apr 17, 2009) - The Opinion - Calgary Alberta


"Way to go g/f!!! Love the song "To Feel This Feel" has a salsa, bluesy, rock feel ...that's hard to pull off and you did it beautifully!!"
- Dennio-Lee Hayes, Revebnation (Oct 01, 2009) - Denni-Lee Hayes - Calgary Recording Artist
