Carolann Solebello is a performing songwriter born and bred in New York City. With a smooth, compelling voice and warm acoustic guitar style, she nods to rural folk traditions while leaning on urban rhythmic structures and sophisticated vocal phrasing. 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.
"It's refreshing to hear a singer-songwriter from Brooklyn who's actually from Brooklyn… Steel and Salt is nothing if not a love song to New York City... This is an album about home. Whether you're from my home or not. In "Movie Queen," Solebello sings that "We will never be celebrities." While that's probably not a bad thing, it would also be a shame to let this album fade into obscurity."
