"I heard something in the voice that made me know that if a lot of people heard that voice they would love it. You’re either born with that or you aren’t. Boy George has it, Sade has it, Tracey Thorn has it and Pola has it"
(Sade, Everything About the Girl, Ive Mendes)
Welcome to the official website of Pola Pospieszalska - Singer / Songwriter and Vocal Coach
Pola Pospieszalska is a London-based singer/songwriter discovered by the legendary top selling UK producer Robin Millar, the man behind the success of SADE, Patricia Kaas, Ive Mendes and Everything But the Girl.
Robin says, “Pola approached me via my website two years ago with a dream and a bunch of very simple little demos. At first I was not sure there was anything to be done. Then three things happened. First, I heard something in the voice that made me know that if a lot of people heard that voice they would love it. You’re either born with that or you aren’t. Boy George has it, Sade has it, Tracey Thorn has it…and Pola has it. The second thing I heard was determination, ambition, single mindedness and self-belief. The third thing that happened is that I started ‘producing’ her music in my mind without being paid and without being asked to”. Early 2010 her first album 'My Favourite Town' produced by Robin Millar (SADE, Everything But the Girl, Patricia Kaas) and Ned Bigham ( Amy Winehouse, Leona Lewis) was released.
In May 2009 Pola performed at the Sony Music’s Smooth Festival , minutes before Macy Gray took the stage. Since then, she performed in Poland, UK, USA, Switzerland, Norway, Denmark, China and Sweden, she also was the guest star of the London Fashion Week opening, where she presented songs from her first album. In 2011 her music video 'You Disappear' won Eurovision OGAE music video contest , voted the best music video by the internet users.

Their work has gained huge celebrity following including music industry mogul Simon Cowell, Meg Matthews, Kevin McNally, Peter Egan, Hollywood actors Ian Somerhalder and Ian Ziering.
Pola supports various animal charities and in 2013 was nominated for a prestigious Polish Award 'Serce Dla Zwierzat'.

“Pola’s music is like a breath of fresh air. The songs match the personality totally, and her unique style and sincerity shines through all she writes and performs. It's a pleasure to create music with her”.
