N. E. D. is an alternative rock band on a mission; these talented musicians are also distinguished gynecologic oncologists. They're raising awareness and supporting women with cancer with original music that's gaining serious critical cred.
In a review of the band's first EP, All Music Guide says, "It never feels like the quality of the music is taking a back seat to the importance of the cause." N.E.D. plans to release its first full-length album this year.
Jeanne Jolly is a Raleigh native who moved back to the Triangle in 2009 after time in Los Angeles and Boston. She is a diverse, classically trained vocalist who has toured and recorded with a variety of acclaimed songwriters and grammy-winning musicians. Jeanne's angelic voice & delicate style have been compared to Alison Krauss, Patsy Cline and Jewel. Her latest EP, 2010's Falling in Carolina, was recorded right here in Durham at SoundPure studios and she's currently working on material for her next solo release. Jeanne has also been touched by cancer, losing her mother to the disease shortly after she moved back home in 2009.
