Does the name Polly Paulusma (you say it pauls-mer) ring a bell? In 2004 her self-produced, home-recorded debut album Scissors in my Pocket (released on One Little Indian, home to Bjork) was everywhere, and so was she. Buoyed by a BBC Radio 2 playlisting and support from Michael Parkinson and Terry Wogan, she toured up and down the country supporting Jamie Cullum and Gary Jules, all over Europe with Bob Dylan and PJ Harvey; and then across America supporting The Divine Comedy, Joseph Arthur and Coldplay; she went on to play Glastonbury, V Festival, the Cambridge Folk Festival, the Fleadh and Glasgow’s T in the Park. Not bad for a little album recorded in a shed.
