Polly began her music career as a busker on the streets of Cork city in 2005. After training as an Actor-musician at London’s Rose Bruford College, she appeared in several stage productions before deciding to pursue her music full time.
She successfully released her debut album ‘Mr. Bookshop’ in 2012 and toured the UK and Ireland extensively for the following 2 years.
Now Polly releases ‘Probably Me’ to her eagerly awaiting public, to whom she is eternally grateful.
Polly now lives in west Cork with her dog, Winnie.
