'Wbrew' Pola , Kayax/Agora

...It's the first album of this young, sensual vocalist, and already successful. Some songs are so delicate and moody that they almost seem to be whispered into your ear (Breathe) and some of them are full of feminine energy (Strangers in the Street) .... - GALA (Gruner Jahr Poland)


One of the most interesting debut albums this year. Pola, who's voice is sensual and delicate has written/co-written all the songs on her first album.

'One of Pola's songs 'BREATHE' has been released by Agora and Sony Music Entertainment before, on the 'Smooth Festival' Album. The other artists featured on the album are: Candy Dufler, Macy Gray, John Legend, John Mayer and Chris Botti. - www.mzg.pl


It's nice and new... in the Top 20 Life Radio..

POLA 's debut album produced by Robin Millar ( the man behind the success of SADE and Everything But the Girl) is out in May.

'Strangers in the Street' is probably the first single, a beautiful track that reminds me of happy Chris Isaak.

This week Pola is number 2 in top 20 on the Life Radio.

“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 had it, Sade had it, Tracey Thorn had it…and Pola had 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' - www.robinmillar.org.uk


'...subtle, delicate, sensual velvet voice of this young vocalist, reminds of early Dusty Springield..'

'..ideal for the coming summer..' - www.fabianski.com.pl


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 - John Altman ( Emmy & BAFTA winning composer)

Bio

POLA 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 had it, Sade had it, Tracey Thorn had it…and Pola had 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”. Source http://robinmillar.org.uk/beautiful_women/pola.htm

John says: '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'.
