Album Notes
With almost four decades of performing festivals, concert halls, coffeehouses, colleges, and house concerts, Bernice Lewis has built a solid national fan base. She is also a published poet, a producer, and an educator extraordinaire. Lewis — who studied vocal improvisation with Bobby McFerrin, guitar technique with Alex DeGrassi and Guy van Duser, and songwriting with Rosanne Cash and Cris Williamson — has been a featured performer on NPR’s Mountain Stage program, as well as at the Kennedy Center. In 1987, she was a finalist in the prestigious New Folk Songwriting Contest at the Kerrville (Texas) Folk Festival, where she continues to be a main stage favorite. Her ballad, “Bridges That Hold,” was included in Peter, Paul and Mary’s Lifelines video (PBS). She was featured in Yoga Journal for her work with sound and yoga, and has shared the stage with many renowned artists, including Dar Williams, Dixie Chicks, Patty Griffin, Pete Seegar, Ellis Paul, Rory Block, Livingston Taylor, Odetta, Christine Lavin, Marty Sexton, Patty Larkin, Catie Curtis, Mary Gauthier… it’s a long list. She has had a thirty-year daily yoga practice, loves good coffee, and her religion is the Grand Canyon.

Bernice at her best
Bernice Lewis has always been among the best of our American singer-songwriters,
with a clear and distinctive voice, good melodies, and keen powers of observation and communication.
This CD is like a best-of, in soulful ballads, and catchy, up-tempo offerings.
It's hard to select favorites, but I lean towards the first four tracks.
