“Winnipegosis, the new cd by Nelson Rudiak is one of the most amazing and refreshing musical productions I’ve heard this year. From start to finish it has no weaknesses that I can see under my microscope. It has everything from amazing playing, superb writing, unique signature sound and groove, and last but not least it’s just a whole lot of fun to listen to. Praise goes out to the artists out there that can show us something pure and genuine beneath their veil of vanity. Nelson Rudiak is one of those artists that let's it all hang out, they let the chips fall where they may and it shows. At the end of the day the music of Nelson Rudiak is a rare find, and their music shines brightly like a priceless gem. Cyrus Rhodes”
