"Avril Lavigne @ a WTO Rally"

"...slick as anything Alanis or Fiona ever recorded, yet crackling with subversive rage...sort of like meeting Avril LaVigne at a WTO rally -- but the thing is, RPM isn't fronting. She's really ready to break some windows, though in a very commercially-acceptable way... seriously concerned with issues like racism, homophobia, war and political activism...it's clear that RPM really believes in what she's doing. There's passion here, along with intelligence and skill..."

"An Important New Act"

"There is little doubt in my mind that RPM is quite a discovery - a talented singer/songwriter destined to cause waves within the jaded world of rock and roll. RPM and her band present powerful anthems that will completely shake up the world of anyone who dares give a listen. Opening the A Young Person's Guide To Being An American EP with Toy Soldiers, RPM transforms the familiar Martika tune into a protest song - complete with samples from President W himself! If you think you knew Toy Soldiers as a pice of pop fluff, just wait until you hear how effectively RPM and her band interpret it! The band's original compositions are particularily potent. The title track is a stand-out that delivers a scathing look at American youth culture and it's desire to fit into the status quo, no matter what the cost. Dedicating the EP to her father who is a soldier, RPM writes in the liner notes, "May no future president abuse the power and service of our troops." With intelligence and dead on observations into the social ills of our fucked up world, RPM is one of the most compelling new acts whose voice will not be silenced. In four songs, RPM and her crew say more in 16 minutes than most artists express within their entire careers. An important new act with an impassioned message, RPM stands miles above the rock and roll starlets that infests My Space and the music scene in general" - Highwire Daze Magazine


"Deep Impact"

"...RPM makes a deep impact ...the release is one of the best female rock releases in a long time and it’s sad there isn’t more like this out there...Only one more thing to add, buy it." - Lions Pride Music


"Metallica and Other Rock Gods"

"...there is an edginess and rough political edge to each song...this could go next to rock radio alongside Metallica and the other rock gods...Still, I wouldn't be surprised to see an appearance on TRL at some point in the future..." - Punk Rock Parents


"Iconoclastic Figure"

“An iconoclastic figure to a new generation of intelligent freethinkers disgusted with the hypocritical absurdities of our political leaders…” - Music Queen


"Sugary Sweet Impact"

"[Irrational Anthem is] Ballsy, anti-corporate rock that defeats the system by fitting in... in-your-face, pull-no-punches… From the opener of "Goddamnit", a catchy, hook-filled song that would be all over the airwaves if it weren't for its anti-religion, fuck-the-establishment content. ..electro-infused pop-rock … guitar-charged, sugary sweet impact…delivers a lyrically engaging, vocally strong, and hooks-a-plenty album of modern pop-rock...” - In Music We Trust


"Haunting"

"RPM opens with "Toy Soldier[s]"…[she] makes this song her own…I love that the dedication on the back of the CD not only honors her father, but also gives a little (ok big) slam to the current administration…"If I Should Die" is haunting and shows the quality of RPM's vocals…RPM is not the only one who is really pissed off about the state of the world. I for one am glad she's showing it, singing about it, yelling about it. If it gets people to take notice, then it's a fantastic thing. She kicks ass.” - Collected Sounds


"Potent Voice"

"...a potent voice and matching power rock to back her up...a brooding guitar strength ...a poignant intensity in a power ballad setting...thoughtful lyrics. A welcome new voice in both musical and lyrical message aspects." - Serge.org


"Honored By"

"...appreciate the overall sound... and vocal dynamics...RPM definitely has some attitude to be honored by...listeners..." - Go Girls Music

Bio

RPM is now endorsed by Coffin Case and Sik World Clothing. www.coffincase.com/www.sikworld.com

Jan. ’04 RPM released her debut CD Irrational Anthem on her own label, 7940 Records Inc., produced by Frank Gryner (A Perfect Circle, Rob Zombie). In Sept., RPM released a potent concept EP A Young Person’s Guide To Being An American with machine gun imagery…and then TV came looking for her. A&E commissioned RPM as the Casting Producer for Intervention. Premiering in March ’05, & just picked up for another cycle of shows, the docu-reality series is the most controversial show on TV & is enjoying massive ratings and press- including 2 episodes of Oprah and Time Magazine. This all coincided with MTVU and FYE’s 50,000 unit release of the In The Wash compilation featuring Don’t Be You, the 100,000 JCPenney/FYE MP3 giveaway featuring Girl Next Door, numerous songwriting awards (including Billboard), heavy college radio play, and spins on LA’s influential Indie 103.1. MySpace.com jumped on board and sponsored a series of RPM shows in SoCal while she secured herself a deal in Japan – and is currently on MTV Japan & Space Shower TV. Now developing 3 reality TV projects, RPM was the first act to be booked for the 2005 Locobazooka! United We Rock concert and she can be found on Yahoo Launch, ITunes & XM Satellite Radio. This summer, RPM is touring the southwest including an appearance at Oklahoma’s DFest .
