Polly will be joining John Illsley in May for an album launch show.  She has dueted and provided backing vocals on four tracks of the upcoming album 'Streets Of Heaven' and will be performing these on the night for press, media and industry friends at The Gibson Room, London, and over the coming months as the album is toured.

 

Groove at the Grove

John Illsley, of the legendary Dire Straits, has been recording his new album at British Grove Studios in London, and invited Polly to write backing vocals for several of the tracks.  So, on a wintery afternoon in January, Polly created and recorded some gorgeous melodies that will now be featuring on four tracks of the upcoming release. 

Polly will also be appearing in a video session at Britsh Grove later this month in association with the album.

Polly and Steve have been working with a great new drummer and bass player in a studio in the depths of the Berkshire coutryside... The guys, who have worked together as a duo for years, have already mastered several of the existing tracks and are now working on developing some of Polly's latest writing.  Watch this space for the first live 'Band Gig.'   Rock On!!

 

Do you wanna get high?

At the highest altitude gig to date - and it's gonna take some topping - Polly, with guitarist Steve Picken, played to the new season skiers on the Italian Dolomites. A stage was erected mid-piste, with all gear (and players) being transported by ski lift to Piz de Plais at 1620m!

Polly got everyone warmed up (!) before the legendary players from Dire Straits took to the stage for a shiveringly good show to the 2000 strong crowd. Despite the sub-zero conditions, there was no chance of a frosty reception as Polly got feet stamping and hands clapping across the salopetted audience, once again delivering a stomping gig to a great crowd!

We love you Italy!

 

Band Camp

In the coming weeks and months, Polly will be working on developing some new and exisiting material with a small band. She will be taking some time out from gigging to work on this, and penning new songs, with a bigger and better sound heading your way early next year!!
