Born in North Carolina, singer/songwriter Jeanne Jolly broke onto the music scene as the featured vocalist for Grammy Award winning jazz trumpeter Chris Botti. Touring all through North America, she had the opportunity to sing with world renowned symphonies, perform at venues like Carnegie Hall, and play marquee events such as the Monterey Jazz Festival. A diverse, classically trained vocalist, Jeanne's voice is said to embody the "early belting power of Linda Ronstadt" (MetroMusicScene, VA) combined with "the delicate lilt of Alison Krauss" (NC Metro Magazine). After her tenure with Botti came to an end, Jeanne found herself being pulled back to her Southern roots, moving back to North Carolina where she began to focus on developing her guitar skills, sharpening her solo performance, and focusing on writing more of her own songs. It wasn't long until she once again found herself in the company of Grammy nominated artists, opening up for Sam Bush, Maura O'Connell, Chuck Mead, and many more. "She is undeniably a versatile singer with an amazing and rare ability to sing with the sophistication of modern jazz and the simple passion of an Appalachian Americana. Jolly has a gorgeous voice that isn't something you hear or happen upon everyday." - Common Folk Review
