Walter Magazine Feature – “Jeanne Jolly: A Study in Contrasts”
Jeanne Jolly is a jack of all trades, and also a study in contrasts.
A classically trained vocalist, Jolly’s new record, A Place to Run, takes her deep into country music territory. And while the Raleigh native may look like a composed Southern Grace Kelly, on stage, she gets down, with powerhouse vocals evocative of Linda Ronstadt and the ethereal harmonies of Alison Krauss.
Jolly’s hometown release show for A Place to Run will take place downtown at Lincoln Theatre later this month, and she’ll bookend that concert with three performances as a featured solo vocalist for the North Carolina Symphony’s trio of Thanksgiving holiday shows. Two are performances of traditional holiday songs, and the third, for children, features the music of Frozen.
From soulful country originals to Princess Anna from Frozen’s song For the First Time in Forever–for Jeanne Jolly, it’s all in a day’s work.
