Article written by Rod Underhill - 1sound.com

Dolly Rappaport glides gently through a Bay Area studio and perches on the bench before her grand piano. After a moment of reflection, she nods to her husband, Mitch Rappaport, who stands behind the glass window of the engineering booth. After adjusting her headphones, she smiles and prepares to lay the first tracks for another song. Dolly has a lot of work to do. She's already recorded more than a 100 songs, but there exist nearly 100 additional songs that she and her husband have written that remain yet unrecorded.

Soon her hands are expertly moving across the keyboard as chords emerge and are dutifully recorded. Singing out in her clear, lovely voice, Dolly starts to knock out another pop gem.

"The Bay Area community of artists and performers is a pretty close knit group," remarks Mitch to our question about how Santana and Tower of Power musicians had happened to guest on the recording of the song "Pendulum." Indeed, the Bay Area has long been famous for producing quality pop and rock music. Could Dolly Rappaport be the next star to issue from the recording studios of "The City by the Bay?"

Rappaport has a wealthy background as a musician. A classically trained and award winning pianist, she turned from "serious" music to the world of pop. Gifted on sax as well as piano, her compositions often feature both instruments giving her music a unique signature sound.

Her husband and song writing partner also lends a hand: he performs most of the bass and guitar sections of each Dolly song. Together they form a team with one central goal always in mind: to increase Dolly's audience. They aren't the only ones trying to spread the word about Dolly: a vibrant Dolly Rappaport fan club already exists.

Dolly embraces the classic pop sounds of a Carole King, Elton John, and Billy Joel but such comparisons are ultimately misleading. Dolly Rappaport stands alone as a unique talent.

The Internet has allowed thousands of artists to find audiences, but Rappaport stands out as one of the very few Internet artists who actually deserves the attention of a major label. Her latest CD, Dark Blue, is a marvel of pop music. Dolly could become the new Queen of Pop if somebody would wake up and toss a recording deal her way.

Dolly continues to sing, as the sound recording equipment captures her voice...

Cinderella wants to play
King Arthur wants to play
The evil sisters are looking good
They want to rock around the clock
I think the knights are all in shock
But they'd party, I know they would

Is it all just window dressing
Just dress up and pretend
Fancy this and fancy that
Again and again and again...

Soon, she will lay the final tracks to "Am I Dreamin'" and move on to another Rappaport original. Dolly's music is waiting for you to discover. Give her a listen, won't you? Such talent should be enjoyed, talked about with friends, and supported. Dolly Rappaport is gifted, but it is you, the listener, who ultimately will be rewarded.

An Overflow of Talent !
Don't let the beauty and humbleness fool you. Dolly is overflowing with talent. Along with Mitch, her husband, she produces top notch music, which combines her classical and pop skills together to truely be one of the new millennium's top pop stars. Besides the unbelievable set of lungs on her, her talent on keys and saxaphone gives her music a sense completeness from start to finish.
You got to hear her to believe it!
And this won't be the last you hear of her!!!

Andrea Crimmins - singer/songwriter

And a star rose over San Francisco Bay...
Dolly Rappaport has put together a wonderful collection of songs that will touch your heart and pluck that inner chord that few artists manage to find. From the haunting Sense of Identy to the powerfully emotional Hold Me Closer, Dolly pulls you along with her on a unique musical journey that you will want repeat again and again. A MUST HAVE CD...Just For You...

Richard Duane

There is special sunshine when Dolly sings
This beautiful complication has something for everyone. The songs, one after another, are so refreshing in these days of vocal nonsense. Depth and sincerity are the two words that come to mind as I listen. Dolly spells talent!

Wettstreit auf der Suche im Seelengrund
JS (Joerg Sommermeyer) über den Song "Deep Down":
Prächtige Vocals, Sax, Piano, Orgel, Bass & Drums im beschwörenden Wettstreit auf der Suche im Seelengrund nach Erkenntnis, Selbsterfahrung und Verwirklichung.

What a voice
Wow, this is my first c.d. by dolly, even though I heard a lot about her from another person. I love just putting on her c.d., pulling out my art supplies, and drawing, and listening. Keep on singing Dolly!

Dolly has consistently made great music! What else is there to say?
Dolly has consistently made great music! What else is there to say? I am going to run out and get this latest CD. I have been a fan for years. Gotta love the oldies like Hotel d'space, Cool River Sally, Hey Ya. I can't wait to hear more of this new CD.

One word. Awesome.

This music is stunningly beautiful
Dolly Rappaport has the voice of an angel, especially when she is singing harmony to herself. I nearly get goosbumps every time I hear her music. Dolly is clearly as at home on the piano bench as she is with the sax as she is with a vocal mic. The vocals are stunning and the supporting music is fabulous too. Never does it overshadow the vocal.

The songs on this collection are diverse for sure. They're beauties every one of them too.
