                    An enlightening presence...

                     It is impossible not to have a good time listening to Lewis sing.

                     Bernice Lewis may well be the frosting on the cake!
                             Rod Kennedy, Director
                             Kerrville Folk Festival
                             Kerrville, Tx
                     Bernice Lewis should be investigated by major labels if they can spare the
                     time from signing groups who sound like the Beatles.
                             John Tobler

                     Lewis' lake-clear voice and satisfying mix of heartfelt and humorous
                     compositions make her worth hearing.  Again and again.

                     Bernice packed the Threadgill Theatre to capacity and wound up with a
                     standing ovation and a pair of encores.   She wowed the crowd with funny
                     stories and her wry insights.  I loved the show from beginning to end.

                     Autumn must be nature's attempt to imitate Bernice's
                     voice: vivid contrasts, intense hues and bright spendor. Voices
                     of such quality are of the "once in a generation" variety. Unlike
                     similarly gifted female vocalists (Mary Black, Maura O'Connell)
                     who are exclusively singers and interpreters of songs, Lewis has
                     a real flair for songwriting as well.
                     Shawn Linderman

                     In the forefront of her generation of singer-songwriters.
                             Vic Heyman

                      Her music, her vocals, and her writing are utterly and uniquely her own.
                             Seth Rogovoy
                             Boston Phoenix
                     A fully realized effort from a mature, complex performer who can express
                     every note of her emotion.
                             David Johnson
                             New England Folk Almanac
                     A musical and lyrical tour de force that should propel Lewis to the
                     uppermost ranks of the new folk crowd...

                     The type of recording you listen to over and over again,

                     "A small masterpiece."

                     She was the first person in the history of our coffeehouse to receive a
                     second standing encore.

                     Lovely - I was scared to death to follow her.

                     Isle Of Spirit is a first class recording, Bernice's finest work yet.  Each
                     song sparkles with top notch writing, performances and production .  I
                     just cant stop listening to this album.
