About Polly Paulusma

I am a touring, recording singer-songwriter, a record producer and label founder.

After studying English at Cambridge, I signed to Björk's record label One Little Indian in 2003, and Sony Publishing, and released my debut album 'Scissors In My Pocket' in 2004 (and its sibling album 'Cosmic Rosy Spine Kites') 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 sibling albums 'Fights and Numbers' and 'The Small Feat of my Reverie'), a film soundtrack ('Clear Lake') and founded my own folk label Wild Sound which has supported the work of nine other independent folk/acoustic artists.

I am now back working with newly-named One Little Independent towards my next two releases, 'Invisible Music' (2021) and 'The Pivot On Which Everything Turns' (2022). I have been releasing 'Pivot' songs as an experiment to subscribers and patrons across two years, a song a month.

My albums collectively 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.

Alongside making albums, I do research: I just finished my PhD was on how folk singing affected the writer Angela Carter; I teach English literature at university level, and I am working on a collaborative musico-literary project about Angela Carter with fellow singer-songwriter and Patreon creator Kathryn Williams and the Scottish novelist Kirsty Logan.

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.
