Polly Paulusma follows up her critically acclaimed 2021 album Invisible Music with The Pivot On Which The World Turns.
Affectionately shortened to "Pivot," Polly Paulusma's The Pivot On Which The World Turns marks a return to her singular brand of insightful songs that, in their subject matter, roam around the badlands of love, sex and parenthood, death and grief, failure and success, violence and healing. Most poignantly the album focuses on the roles of women, in our lives and across history, from a variety of perspectives.
Polly Paulusma is an English singer-songwriter and renowned folk artist who’s released eight official albums since 2004. She is also a producer and label founder - her own label Wild Sound released records from nine other artists between 2012 and 2016 before becoming a folk imprint at One Little Independent Records. 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 has 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.
