CONGRATS! Hamilton/Dunville's Rob Lamothe on Powerplay Magazine's Top Singers List

Former Hamiltonian and current Dunnville resident, Rob Lamothe got some well-deserved national recognition recently. UK rock mag Powerplay included the talented singer/songwriter him in their 'Top 50 Favourite Singers List' in the August 2021 issue. He was number 23. CONGRATS!

Here's what the magazine had to say: 

"As frontman for The Riverdogs, Rob was at the helm of one of the most overlooked debut albums in rock music history. I got to see The Riverdogs (long after the debut came and went) when they ventured over to the UK in support of their wonderful ‘Bone’ record, recalls Mike Gaffney.

Lamothe was in spectacular form that night (and every night I’ve seen him since), and his voice, rather than diminish, just gets better as the years go by. He has an extensive collection of solo records too, each of which is a must-listen (everyone should own a copy of his debut solo album ‘Gravity’)."
