Hollis Gets It Going!
Hollis Resnik is Chicago's own diva and now we have here on a great CD. Her selections, orchestrations and voice bring out the true personality Chicago has learned to love. From the upbeat All you Need is a Quarter to the poignant Lion Tamer, the CD captures the range and depth of Hollis' strong theatrical personality. Musical theatre standards, pop tunes and poignant melodies are all blended into a super CD! For any musical theatre fan, this CD is a must!!!!

Ray Dooley

A beautful collection.
Beautifully conceived, produced, and performed, this CD brings both superb musicianship and theatrical excellence to a lovely selection of material. Hollis Resnik is brilliant.

Jim Beck

Wow! I am so glad this leading lady has her own recording!
Now you can hear a cd version of what Chicagoland already knows... This leading lady has got what it takes.... It was my privilege to be in shows and work a master class with Hollis...and her talents are Class A+++... You can "see" her expressions as you listen to each song... truely talented...Nice variety of songs. Strong vocal delivery..... NO disappointments here.. HATS OFF to arrangements,orchestrations,and quality of recording!!

Cyril Fargues

The CD is excellent: the voice and the orchestra are very very good. The two numbers I prefer are "the life of the party" and "make someone happy".

Hollis Resnik's phenomenal debut cd
If you've ever seen Hollis perform live, you already know you're in for a treat. What's truly remarkable about this recording is that it captures not only her incredible voice but the complete theatricality she brings to every piece of music she sings. Every track on this cd is phenomenal. I'm particularly obsessed with "Who's That Stranger?" which I don't think is recorded anywhere else. But Hollis makes each song sound incredibly personal, so even the "classics" sound like they're being sung for the first time. And the orchestrations will blow your mind. In short, BUY THIS CD. By the time you reach the end, you'll be begging for her next one.
