[Threshold] is excellent. Carolann has crisp, lush vocals and strong instrumentation. I give it an A rating.

For six years Carolann Solebello anchored Red Molly's harmonies with her velvety alto. On her new CD, Threshold, she steps confidently into the role of solo performer with the clarity and conviction of her vocals, complemented by some of the New York area's best musicians and Fred Gillen's ever-tasteful production.

Threshold, Carolann Solebello’s departure from the wonderful Red Molly, is in no way a lesser effort. It seems she has found her own voice in a manner that is in turn both winsome and full of frolic. This is not say it is not a mature work...far from it. There is also a maturity in the writing that speaks to adult matters. In brief, we have here an artist who has found herself by going it alone,and thus has become complete; and completely one with her work. It is a joy to hear.

Through her latest CD Threshold, Carolann Solebello opens the door and invites us in to enjoy a powerful collection of songs that take an affirmative look at the changes and opportunities life throws our way. Her artistry as a songwriter and vocalist take center stage as she shares thought-provoking original songs as well as offering new interpretations of some traditional gems. Songs like "Tea Without Sympathy" and "Empty House" are just two of the standouts from this CD that quickly made its way into my heart.

Carolann Solebello's aptly named new CD, Threshold, is a gem. She has entered a new phase of her career, stepping out of the shadow of Red Molly to display her own rich voice and considerable songwriting talents, skillfully mastering a wide variety of genres from contemporary to country while also putting her own spin on a few traditional ballads. Carolann has come into her own.

Carolann Solebello delivers a lovely new solo release that is beautifully sung and thoughtfully produced without a trace of cluttered arrangements or superfluous instrumentation. The ten original tunes on Threshold are marked by solid songwriting and a clarity of style that relies on pure devotion and heartfelt emotion. You don't have to be a radio programmer to appreciate these newfound originals. The beauty here is quite obvious for all to enjoy.
