CAROLANN SOLEBELLO is a performing songwriter born and bred in New York City. Her smooth, compelling voice and warm acoustic guitar style surely nod to rural folk traditions, yet a decidedly urban sense of rhythm and sophisticated vocal phrasing bend those traditional forms into more contemporary shapes. Carolann released her fifth solo album, Shiver, in February 2018. A proud member of the Jack Hardy Songwriters’ Exchange, Carolann has won numerous songwriting awards and released her fifth solo album, Shiver, in February 2018.
"I think of Carolann Solebello as a painter with words. An illustrator could have a field day with the imaginative storytelling [in this] book of tales... Whether it’s divine aid or some other muse, she shows off some major chops with Shiver."
~ Richard Cuccaro, Acoustic Live in NYC
