Journeys About to Begin on CD

Finally! After many years of performing, Jeanne feels she has found her true calling in singing, playing guitar, and songwriting. The title of the album, 'The Journey's about to begin...' reflects both exhiliarated self-realization, and excited promise for the road ahead. Jeanne released this debut CD in August 2005, but she is not at all new to music or performing; she began singing, playing piano, and acting as a young girl in Missouri and has been acting professionally in Chicago for a number of years now. Her passion for singing/songwriting has become her focus in the last couple of years, and her time spent with her guitar now definitely outweighs her time learning lines! Meanwhile, she continues to work contractually as a school psychologist with a couple of suburban Chicago-area school districts (obviously, great fodder for song ideas!), while spending most of her free time focusing on that which she is most passionate about - songwriting and performing. After beginning writing and performing her original tunes just a couple of years before the album's release, Jeanne completed her full-length CD - 15 lyrical little stories about life, love, laughter, and loss. These songs range from quietly acoustic, to a completely orchestrated full-band. It's folk-infused singer/songwriter stylings blended with soulful-pop. The album highlights Jeanne's passionate and powerful vocal expression and phrasing, as well as her intense, percussive guitar technique, often accomplished in open tunings. Critics say: 'The strong emotions explored on Jeanne T. Arrigo's CD ring true thanks to her classic folk singer vocals and deft touch with lyrics...' Terrence Flamm, Illinois Entertainer; 'Arrigo is startlingly straightforward, earnest and organic in her material, which is enlivened by a beautiful singing voice...sincerity and artistry...' Music Connection Magazine. Audience members have compared Jeanne's sound and style to that of Joni Mitchell, Shawn Colvin, Jonatha Brooke, and on occasion, Ani DiFranco. Listeners have said: 'Her songs are like a love letter I'd like to receive;' 'She creates whole stories in which her characters live.' Jeanne performs both solo acoustic showcases and gigs in and around Chicago, and gigs with other local singer/songwriters as they flesh out each others' songs with harmonies and more instrumentation. Jeanne is a natural performer, relishing every opportunity to share her intimate, organic style with listeners.
