About Polly Paulusma

I am a working musician and life-long student of the porous boundaries between song and literature.

After studying English at Cambridge I signed to Björk's record label One Little Indian in 2003, and released my debut 'Scissors In My Pocket' in 2004 to international critical acclaim.

Since then I have released two more studio albums, 'Fingers and Thumbs' (2007) and 'Leaves from the Family Tree' (2012), and founded my own folk label Wild Sound which has supported the work of nine other independent folk/acoustic artists.

My albums have achieved international critical acclaim and my songs have been published by Sony/ATV in Los Angeles. I have toured the USA, the UK and Europe, supporting Bob Dylan, Jamie Cullum, Coldplay and Marianne Faithfull in my travels.

I am currently releasing a fourth album, tentatively entitled 'The Pivot on which Everything Turns', to subscribers, across two years, a song a month.

I am also working on a collaborative musico-literary project with Kathryn Williams and Kirsty Logan, while completing my PhD on the folk-singing of Angela Carter.

When I reach my first 100 patrons, I will celebrate by releasing - exclusively to patrons - some never-before-heard archive material of live shows I played in the USA.
