Album Notes
Theressa Ruppert

Theressa Ruppert has been singing since the age of 3. Her career began in Winnsboro, Louisiana, where she sang in her local church and with her Mother, Sister and two Aunts in a Gospel band "The Louisiana Angel Band". They opened for such well known gospel acts as "The Hinsons", "The Singing Americans", "The Payne Family", and many more. She would record an original song on their first album produced by Ronnie Hinson of "The Hinsons" in Nashville, Tennessee at the age of 17. Later in college in Monroe, Louisiana, she sang in a 100-member choir and traveled with "The Louisiana All-State Choir" for two years. After college she moved to South Haven, Michigan and began singing with a local cover band, Diamond and the Rough, where they performed at local festivals, parties and local bars. She sang with the cover band for 21/2 years before striking out on her own.

She has performed with well-known European blues artist, Jimmy Dillon, J.C. Hartsfield, a former Columbia Recording Artist, of the "Hartsfield" band from the 70's and also sang backup for well-known Elvis imitator "The Big E". She was privileged to perform at R&B Artist Heather Headley's wedding reception and sing a duet with Chuck Leavell from the Rolling Stones.

She has since formed her own band, writing and performing her own music. She released her first CD, called "Get On Board" early last spring to a sold out crowd of 300 people in her home town. In April of the same year she was given the opportunity to open for Lorrie Morgan and also later that summer "The Rockin Road House" tour at "Summer Jam 2002 in St. Joseph Michigan. Her CD is played regularly on Y97.5 radio station out of St. Joseph, Michigan.

This past November she entered and won the "Nashville Star" competition in Chicago and headed to Kansas City for the "Nashville Star" regional where she did not place but gained a chance to be seen by executives in the Country Music Industry.

On July 19th of this year she released her second CD "Dance of Life" to a crowd of over 300 people. She sold 200 copies of her CD in the first week out.

Theressa has opened for the legendary Leon Russell in Grand Rapids,Michigan and Country Music Star, Chris Cagle in St. Joseph, Michigan. In February, 2004 she appeared on Oprah's Pop Star Challenge as one of eight contestants out of 15,000 videos submitted.

Most recently, Theressa was given the honored opportunity to perform at the CMA Festival (formerly known as FanFare)on the same stage as some of Country Music's biggest legends at the Ryman Auditorium.

Her songwriting has been called a unique blend of country and blues and her voice a "booming gospel-stirring sound".

David Proulx

This is a great album! Theressa has really found her own sound.
So often these days, albums seem disjunct and have no flow to them at all. While each of the songs on this album have their own flavor, they are all distinctly Theressa's unique style. Combining elements of jazz, blues, country, and down-home Louisiana grit, this songwriter has found her own sound. Theressa should be very proud of this project, as she has overcome the oridnary, and has stepped out to make a statement of her own.

A group of songs that will leave you dancing all night and day long!
The Dance of Life has danced its way into so many hearts and souls so quickly! The blues and souls sound to the country twang adds the right mix of spice that will weave its way into your life. Definitely 5 stars!


Nostalgic of USA
Can't help myself playing Theressa every mornin'as i wake up.I'm usually more into Blues,but Theressa's voice and music make me feel nostalgic of the USA!!! I feel being part of some American landscape,just like in a movie,just like in a dream
I wish her all the best in her Country ,in the whole world.Anyway i'll spread the word here ,trust me !!!

Sean from Chicago

Great Voice and some infectious songs!
The stand out cut on the CD is Betcha. Its a modern raucous honky tonk gem. This song along with Gladys Defoe, Drop by Sometime and Raindown on me with their country/blues hyrid sound are worth the price of the CD alone. Voice is silky and warm like brandy. Thanks Theressa

Fabulous, Fun, & Funky
Great Sound, the lyrics hit home on so many of the songs that anyone can relate some life experience to each one.

Susan Gilmore (Fertile Ground)

Good lyrics!
Hey you got listed as on our CDBaby page . I thought I'd give it a listen. Not bad. Not bad at 'tall. Check us out too. We'd love any feedback you can spare. Thanks.

Becky B.

So amazing and talented ! She knock's your socks off every time!
With all due respect, the Oprah staff made a poor decision when then didn't pick Theressa as the winner of the Top 100 Talents. Not only does Theressa compose and perform her own music with soul and emotion, her sexy and sometimes husky, sultry voice is a balance of Faith Hill, Cher and Celine Dion. A little country, a little jazz and gospel and just plain FUN! I bounce when I hear the “Dance of Life” every time! We are very proud to help promote this very beautiful and talented woman and grateful for her support and participation of

Coladaman ( Muskegon )

Great looks , killer voice , super lyrics, this one has it all !!!
What an amazing disc, Theressa has that killer voice that's going to take her far!!! Her soulful lyrics will keep you listening again and again !

Rodger Welch

I am a little bias as I knew her when she was 3 years old, thru her early career and now to hear her voice all mature and worthy of being the next STAR. Finding mediocre is easy finding a unique and different sound that is pure joy. This CD is a keeper don't miss it.
