“Boundless Love,” the first single from Jeanne Jolly’s upcoming A Place to Run, is a gorgeous slab of Americana and a showcase of a versatile Raleigh singer coming into her own. Co-written with Chris Boerner, who also plays guitar and handles production duties, the soulfully swaying “Boundless Love” shifts from country crooning to blues belting, with R&B-inflected melismas punctuating the tune. The blend is intoxicating.

While Jolly cites influences such as Billie Holiday and Renee Fleming, the country roots of The Foreign Exchange and Chris Botti collaborator have come increasingly to the fore in her solo work. A Place to Run, set for an October 2 release on her Ramblewood Records imprint, digs deeper into the red clay of her home state.

Recorded at Kernersville's Fidelitorium, the song’s atmospheric beauty draws upon the skills of a fine assemblage of Triangle talent, including pedal steel player Allyn Love, organist James Wallace, Matt McCaughan in his percussionist role and bassist Brad Cook of Megafaun, whose brother Phil contributes elsewhere.

Echoing the album’s title phrase, “Boundless Love” picks up on the LP’s theme of running—both away from dark things as well as toward love and connection. As Jolly sings in the chorus: “Pray with your feet moving."
