Possessed of a powerful, slightly gritty and slightly Alanis-like singing voice and an ear for catchy melodies and instantly-accessible roots-pop arrangements, Rheaume won $40,000 in Live 88.5’s 2008 Big Money Shot competition. She began releasing EPs in 2007, culminating in a fundraising Christmas collection for Boys and Girls Clubs of Ottawa that sold 6500 copies locally. For the past several years, she has organized Ottawa’s Bluebird North songwriter showcases and co-organized the Babes for Breasts concerts and recording projects to raise money for breast cancer. In addition, she’s performed for the troops in Afghanistan three times and raised money on tour for the families of military personnel.
