International artist Polly Gibbons performs at the Arts Garage

DESCRIPTION

Saturday November 4 at 8 PM: International jazz/blues singer/songwriter Polly Gibbons, who has been compared to Adele and Gregory Porter, is receiving brilliant reviews and praise for her talents by artists like Van Morrison and Joss Stone, continues her quest of the U.S. with her third mini tour this year. She is accompanied by Kevin Bales (piano), Chuck Bergeron (bass), John Yarling (drums), and featuring Paul Bollenback on guitar. Inspired by Billie Holiday, the budding singer experienced an initial flurry of excitement in discovering jazz and blues, listening to such artists as Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye, Nina Simone, Miles Davis, Donny Hathaway, Thelonious Monk, etc. She was also greatly influenced by artists like Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen, Rickie Lee Jones and Bob Dylan. Polly has cultivated her craft and eclecticism over the past decade, performing at all the leading UK jazz clubs, international festivals and as a regular at the legendary venue Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club, where she has sung with the All-Stars, led by pianist and house musical director James Pearson.

“There’s always this element of surprise from people who haven’t seen her perform,” says Pearson, Polly’s longtime songwriting collaborator and arranger. “She astounds me, too. She’s unpredictable.” In 2016, she opened the sold out UK tours for George Benson and Gladys Knight and had two acclaimed performances at the Royal Albert Hall. She was also a featured singer with the Liverpool Philharmonic in a presentation of the music and life story of John Lennon. Polly is quickly establishing herself in the States as well, with shows these past few years in Florida, Boston, Minneapolis, Kansas City, Oklahoma City, Los Angeles and Birdland in NYC. She released her critically acclaimed UK debut album, "My Own Company," in 2014.

Polly’s road now leads her to one of those extraordinary places with the release of "Is It Me…?" The album is a journey all its own – a culmination of so many moments that also signifies a meaningful new beginning for both the singer and contemporary jazz.

“A voice that is to Jazz what Adele’s is to pop: rich, powerful, soul-baring!.” – London Evening Standard

Arts Garage is located at 94 NE 2nd Ave in Delray Beach. Tickets are $30-$40-$45 at artsgarage.org or 561-450-6357. BRING YOUR OWN ... WHATEVER! The theater boasts cabaret-style table seating, where patrons can bring their own food and drinks, including alcohol. Music courtesy of KCC Productions
