Album Notes
Her first album was entitled, "Melancholy Pop." A wide variety of influential producers contributed to the album, including Andrew Williams (Old 97's, Peter Stuart, Victoria Williams, Scott Thomas Band), Chad Fischer (Alexi Murdoch, Colin Hay, Lazlo Bane) and Dave Dale. Most of the songs on this CD were co-written with Kevin Hunter (Wire Train, Tuesday Night Music Club). Tracks from this album were used on a number of different TV shows, including "Roswell", "Wonderfalls", "Party of Five".

Renee felt that the music on her follow up album, "sounded a bit more optimistic," which led her to title the album, "Hopeful Romantic." She describes the general sound of this album as, “on the electronic side” which she calls “folktronica”

Barnes & Noble Booksellers distributed “Hopeful Romantic” nationally. Her song “Something Real” was used in the trailer for the movie “The Dead Girl”

She also released “It’s a Big World” on One Melody Records in 2007, which is a collection of original songs for children of all ages that she wrote and performed with Jeremy Toback.

It all started with a simple idea, really: to make kids' music that adults could enjoy, not just tolerate - a collection of original songs for parents who appreciate the likes of Jack Johnson, Nick Drake, and Aimee Mann. The result is a treasure chest of luminous harmonies and sophisticated lullabies. Quiet time music for the whole family to enjoy together.

Great album!
Renee Stahl has got one of the sweetes voices you'll ever hear. This is a fantastic, relaxing CD. Definitely grab "Melancholy Pop" (her other CD) too!

Alexis Peters

Rene's music takes you into another world where you escape and feel like everything will be ok. She is beautiful and special and beyond talented. You need to hear her!

A True Gem - worth a million listenings
I have so many favorites on this CD - Music 101 will stick in your brain like the happy tune it is - Adore is the one I hit replay on the most. This is such gorgeous listening - every time the Renee's music comes up in the shuffle it is a breath of goodness in the air. I truly love this CD it's one of my all time favs.

This is a great CD! "Run" is a song you'd expect to hear on LA's KCRW (a primier radio station that's ahead of the curve). With hints of Aimee Mann and Natalie Merchant, Renee has a style that's ultimately all her own. Definitely worth the listen!
