Polly Paulusma's ‘Pivot’ is her fifth studio album and the ninth release from the indie-folk stalwart whose thought-provoking albums since 2004’s ‘Scissors In My Pocket’ have earned her plaudits from international champions as far flung as Nic Harcourt at KCRW in LA and Michele Manzotti in Italy, as well as homegrown accolades from Mark Radcliffe (BBC Radio 2) and The Guardian.
Polly is also a producer and label founder — her own label Wild Sound released records from nine other artists between 2012-2016 before becoming a folk imprint at OLI. She self-produced and recorded ‘Pivot’ from her garden shed, with the exception of three days in studio for bass, drums, and strings, and she has directed and filmed all her own music videos for the project. Her academic book ‘Angela Carter and Folk Song: ‘Invisible Music’, prose, and the art of canorography’ is coming out in December via Bloomsbury Academic.
Paulusma has toured the world supporting Bob Dylan, Jamie Cullum, The Divine Comedy and Marianne Faithfull, and played Glastonbury, T in the Park, V Festival and Cambridge Folk Festival among many others, touring the USA and Italy. She signed to Sony/ATV in LA and opened for Coldplay at their secret show at The Troubadour in West Hollywood.
