“Jolly is the rare soul who can appease hip-hop heads, highbrow theater aficionados and hardcore country fans alike”—Spencer Griffith
Award-winning singer-songwriter, Jeanne Jolly, is invigorating the music scene with her heartfelt lyricism, heavenly range and soulful folk-pop beats tinged in Appalachian Americana. With her unmistakable signature voice, she is carving out music without boundaries that pulls from her classical training and folk sensibility. Jolly broke onto the music scene as the featured vocalist for Grammy Award winning jazz trumpeter, Chris Botti. Touring throughout North America, she had the opportunity to sing with world renowned symphonies and perform at venues like Carnegie Hall & play marquee events such as the Monterey Jazz Festival. A diverse, classically trained vocalist, Jolly’s voice is said to embody the “early belting power of Linda Rondstadt, combined with “the delicate lilt of Alison Krauss”.
In 2010, Jolly released her EP, Falling In Carolina which has garnered top praise for honest lyrics and quality vocals. She received recognition upon it’s release with the North Carolina Metro Magazine’s award for “Best Local Musician” in 2010, 2011 and was a featured artist at the 2011 International Folk Alliance. In 2012, Jeanne Jolly embarked on a tour of the Pacific Northwest where she headlined the Sweet Pea Festival of the Arts and the Red Ants Pants Festival alongside the likes of Rodney Crowell, Emmylou Harris and Billy Joe Shaver.
Her new full length album, “Angels”, debuted in the top fifteen on the iTunes Singer Songwriter Chart. Since it’s release, “Angels” has been praised for its depth of sweetness and sorrow that can fit any mood and strikes a chord with a variety of music fans. Her songs reflect on the angels that affect all of our lives, leaving the definition of “Angels” to the listener. It is a grassroots album to really sink your teeth into. 2013 will see Jeanne touring throughout the U.S. engaging festival and club audiences.
“Her sound is a unique blend of strong vocals with a folk sounding melancholy reminiscent of Alison Krauss”
