Just Across the Water
Carolann Solebello is a native New Yorker who spent several years touring the nation as a professional theatre actor before finding her way back home as part of 'folkabilly blues' duo BLIND DIVA (with singer-songwriter Hope Nunnery). After going solo in 1998, her rich voice and distinctive brand of urban folk graced acoustic rooms in New York City as well as watering holes in exotic locations like New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Florida, and Kansas. In 1999, she formed CC RAILROAD with fellow singer-songwriters Rich Boniface, Ryder Daniels, and Cheryl Prashker, performing with this funky folk foursome through several tours and two albums (available here at CD Baby), until divergent family and career paths took the members to four different states in 2005. Carolann is also a founding member of the Americana/roots trio RED MOLLY, who have been tearing up stages all over America since 2004. All RED MOLLY releases are available here at CD Baby. Just Across the Water, Carolann's 2000 solo effort, is a stylistically eclectic, lyrically-driven collection of songs of innocence and experience. Featuring ten original 'urban folk' tunes, this album highlights Carolann's dramatic vocal style and sweet acoustic guitar while spotlighting several stellar guests - cellist Michele Moyer, upright bassist Matt Scharfglass (of MRS. GRUNDY), plus percussionists Brendan McGowan and Cheryl Prashker (late of CC RAILROAD). Carolann lives in Brooklyn, New York, with her husband and son.
