Personalities | P.J. Harvey | Twenty-First Century | Rock

(Guitar, singer-songwriter, b. 1969)

Hailing from the UK’s ‘West Country’, P.J. Harvey is now eight albums into her career. Trading in a primeval, highly feminine strain of blues rock, Polly Jean Harvey has moved from stripped-down rock to sophisticated acoustic ballads before a stomping brand of indie that is incendiary when caught live. She has influenced many female acts since the mid-1990s, and has guested and duetted with artists as diverse as Thom Yorke, Nick Cave, Josh Homme and Tricky.
