Welcome back to Music Monday…. or should I say Music Friday. 🙂 I was a little late this week, but I wanted to make sure that I found a fantastic artist to share with you. As I listening to my trusty Pandora vocal jazz station, I came across Renee Olstead. Although she is more known for acting roles in TV sitcoms, Renee Olstead started singing jazz at age 13. She published a self-titled album with Warner Brothers in 2004, and then Skylark . One of her songs, “A Love that Will Last,” appeared in Princess Diaries 2.
I love her traditional jazz, bluesy voice. I also love her talent with vocal scatting -a skill I would really like to develop. 🙂 I can’t believe it took me this long to find her!
Here are five of my favorite songs by Renee Olstead:
- Summertime by Renee Olstead
2. Alright, Okay, You Win by Renee Olstead
3. Hit the Road Jack
4. Skylark by Renee Olstead
5. Someone to Watch Over Me by Renee Olstead
I hope you liked Renee Olstead’s amazing voice and stylistic talent as much as I do! 💚
