Polly Paulusma combines an American country aesthetic with old-English folk sounds, and this is one of the reasons we love her. Following critically acclaimed first album, Scissors in my Pocket, Paulusma has appeared on stage with more famous people than Mark Ronson, including Bob Dylan, Jamie Cullum, Marianne Faithfull, The Divine Comedy and Coldplay (but we’ll forgive her the last one). A difficult personal time in which Paulusma suffered two miscarriages resulted in a heartfelt, complex and often agonising second album, but two children later Paulsuma is on top of the world. Let’s go and celebrate with her.
