POLLY WOOD is a drummer, songwriter and multi-disciplinary artist with a purely revealing and enchanting voice. She sings while she drums, letting rhythms guide her intelligent lyrics and buttery, percussive vocals straight into the heart of the listener. Think ‘morning songbird meets nighttime rhythms’.
Her prolific songwriting ranges from softly cutting social commentary to honestly sweet love ballads to uplifting edu-tainment which she backs with her rhythmic beats on the djembe, tounge drum, canjon and drum kit. Her sound, which hearkens the sound of a different era, has been called ‘Appalachian Jazz Percussion’ and ‘Acoustic Rhythmic Love Spirituals’.
Polly holds an MFA in Creative Inquiry and an MA in Women’s Spirituality and is devoted to preserving the Divine, Sacred Feminine through music, dance, art & scholarship.
