Polly Jean Harvey, artistically known as PJ Harvey, was born in Bridport, Dorset, England on 9 October 1969. Happy 51 to a remarkable singer-songwriter with a remarkable career scoring several masterly albums. Three of Turn Up The Volume‘s favorites: Second album Rid Of Me (1993), third LP To Bring You My Love (1995), fourth longplayer Is This Desire? (1998).
PJ always did only what she wanted to do (and will continue to follow her own path), exploring herself and her art from different angels. With every album (a total of 9,
so far) she surprised and she triumphed. Not many can claim the same. One of the
most compelling artists of her generation. Hands down.
