We had a sneaky listen to the songs from the upcoming release and we must say that this album produced by John Altman and Michael Luevano will delight you. Pola has a soft, slightly husky and fragile vocal that reminds me of Portishead's lead singer Beth Gibbons. The world class arrangements put together by the Oscar nominated/ BAFTA and Emmy winner John Altman bring you the organic sounds of tring quartet as well as hip hop grooves combined with jazz horn section. Simply a masterpiece.
“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”.
Pola approached me via my website two years ago with a dream and a bunchof 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.
