Jeanne Jolly Will Be Unleashing Her ‘Angels’ Next Month

When The Foreign Exchange released their hotly anticipated live album/DVD, Dear Friends: An Evening with The Foreign Exchange, many expected long-serving FE members YahZarah and Sy Smith to be providing female vocals. Sy was present and correct, but a new name, at least to us here at SoulBounce, was also featured, a lady by the name of Jeanne Jolly. Jeanne, a classically trained vocalist who has performed with renowned jazz trumpeter Chris Botti (as has fellow FE affiliate Sy Smith), was best known for her country-inflected Falling In Carolina EP, but she proved she is equally at home singing more soul/R&B orientated material, so much so that she joined the FE guys on their Authenticity tour, as well as providing vocals on Phonte's solo project, Charity Starts At Home, and on a stunning cover of Anita Baker's "Same Ole Love," taken from Zo!'s ...Just Visiting Three. Jeanne has since signed with +FE Music and will be releasing her 10-song album, Angels, on October 2nd. Produced by The Foreign Exchange/The Hot At Nights guitarist Chris Boerner, there is no word on what direction Jeanne will be taking on her full-length debut, but given her past performances, we here at SoulBounce can't wait to take a listen. Keep an ear out for the album's first single, "Sweet Love," due soon.
