  • PJ Harvey

    Raised in the English countryside on Hendrix, Captain Beefheart, and the blues, Polly Jean Harvey first shook the ’90s alternative rock world with her raw, guitar-driven debut Dry (1992) and its aggressive, Steve Albini-recorded follow-up Rid of Me (1993). Harvey went on to make one of the best rock albums of that decade in 1995’s more bluesy To Bring You My Love, and its snaking, organ-led single “Down by the Water” became a surprise radio hit. Harvey has continued to surprise audiences into the current decade by never repeating her sound. She has experimented with electronics, mastered lush pop-rock, mixed tender intimacy with punk swagger, composed solely around the piano, and now made beautiful autoharp-based and saxophone-infused folk songs about war. She has also collaborated with everyone from Nick Cave to Mark Lanegan, and continues to release albums with longtime collaborator and “musical soul mate” John Parish.
