    It's like waking up to the sounds of the music of nature, birds singing and bees buzzing.Skylark by Renee Olstead is wonderful music to your soul!

    I believe that Renee Olstead is a true talent and has quite a future in the music industry.The range she has in her voice is phenomenal! She does not try to copy anyone's style, her own is completely original. When I listen to her music it takes me back to a time when life was simple and I feel like it's good to be alive. I highly recommend this CD to anyone who wants to feel good about who they are.

    more from this reviewer

    She is wonderful!!!

    Have been following her short but amazing career. This is truly a "must have". I play it in the car, while relaxing, with company: it is great. Buy it and you will not regret it.

    I love this CD

    I bought this CD on impulse after hearing some of it played in the bookstore. I had never heard of Renee Olstead, but I suspect we will hear a lot more from her as she has a wonderful voice and the music chosen for the CD seems to fit her perfectly.

    Not the same really as the first; but definitely worth a good listen.

    Renee Olsteads Long Awaited 2nd Release For Reprise Records

    Sharp, Smooth, And Soulful.<BR/>Miss Olstead has a enchanting voice.<BR/>Her grasp of the material gives it a bold, fresh power well beyond her 19 years.
