The Boston Globe – “Jeanne Jolly aims high with ‘Angels'” by Dick Trust

Jeanne Jolly was a sight unseen, a voice unheard to many in the audience when one of her recent concerts began.

After just a few songs, a buzz in the crowd was fairly audible. The overheard, hushed conversation between a 30-something couple seated in the second row was typical. She: “This woman’s voice is so good, how come we’d never heard her before?” He: “I don’t know. Her music is really, really good, and her band is dynamite. You’re right. I don’t know why she’s not more famous.”

Once seen and heard, singer-songwriter Jeanne Jolly from Raleigh, N.C., is hard to forget, her songs easy to remember — especially if you have her debut, “Angels,” and have the habit of playing over and over the 10-track collection released last October. One of contemporary music’s best-kept secrets, she is a revelation when you sit in on one of her concerts.
