Many, many thanks to Folk DJ, Rich Warren, for including Carolann Solebello’s “SHIVER” on WFMT’s “Midnight Special” annotated “Favorites of 2018” list. Working with Carolann and producing SHIVER was the highlight of the year for me. Rich’s comments are below. Enjoy!
“Carolann Solebello may be the best kept secret in the world of singer-songwriters. She left the trio Red Molly just when it was becoming famous. She possesses one of the best voices in the singer-songwriter world with vocal body and spot-on intonation. She’s also matured into a first-rate songwriter. Her topics range from finding her muse to “Bastille Day in New York,” to the deeply personal question and request “Listen.” A great deal of credit for the glory of this album must be given to her producer Joe Iadanza. Thanks to Iadanza, Solebello finally delivers an album where her voice stars and the accompaniment is just that. Everything just falls into place on this recording which vaults Solebello into the upper echelon of singer-songwriters.”
