Synopsis of all the songs on "Freeverse"

We stand upon the Earth with our hands up in the air, reaching out to God and dream the most of water, as we smolder in despair... will you still Politely tell that lie?     I know you better...What if we changed? ...just like a line that's been erased, still a ghost of Truth will become what you dwell upon!
We'll get the Truth we earn...walk a fine line to balance your Soul...your footsteps paint the Canvas of your life...Once is enough in a lifetime...
Love is the Power that makes this Sound!

Rene has been a solo performer since 1980 and over the years has shared the stage with Tom Chapin, Michelle Malone, Danielle Howle, and Indigo Girls. She has seen a lot in her life travels and it’s all here in “Freeverse.” Put to melody and beat, you get a trip through the heart and head of Rene Russell. Personal, intimate, vulnerable and strong this CD has an old soul that connects to everyone, especially those who have done a little living.
