Open Lines and Signals - David Johnson of  New England Folk Almanac calls this recording "a small masterpiece." Produced by Peter Gallway (Cliff Eberhard, Aztec Two Step, Laura Nyro, Louise Taylor), it features Bernice's cover of Michael Smith's Dead Egyptian Blues complete with horns and Andrews Sisters-like harmonies. This album also includes I Need A Wife, Too co-written with David Wilcox, as well as other originals. Back-up musicians are Cosy Sheridan, Cormac McCarthy, Ed Gerhard, Susie Burke and David Surette.

Featuring new classics like "Normal's Just a Setting on the Washing Machine" and "When the Guru was Around", this recent release is peppered with appearances by an all-star cast of national musicians, including Dar Williams, Ellis Paul, Jennifer Kimball, Brooks Williams, Mark Kelso and Alisa Fineman. The clarity of the writing and the sophistication of the production make "Religion and Release" Lewis's best album to date. There's not a bad note on it, nor any song that won't hold up to repeated listening. Seth Rogovoy, Berkshire Eagle

Highly recommended, one of the 10 best I've heard this year.
Alan Rowoth, F_M Digest

Lewis' finest achievement. It's a winner from every angle.
Roberta B. Schwartz, Folk & Acoustic Music Exchange

Isle of Spirit, produced by Adam Rothberg, (Dar Williams), was hailed by the Berkshire Eagle as Bernice Lewis "most mature, successful recorded effort to date." Featuring such radio-ready material as "As Soon As It Stops Raining" and "Moses and Me", the diverse collection of songs, which garnered a three-star review by Seth Rogovoy in the Boston Phoenix, also features the western-swing novelty, "Red Cowboy Boots", the hauntingly heartbreaking Holocaust song, "Ways To Survive" and "Bridges That Hold", a ballad that one critic has called "an instant classic."
