Seventeen year old Polly Mackey’s precocious songwriting skills received industry acknowledgement earlier this year when she reached the finals of the UK MIBI National Songwriting Awards.

Her live performances have been in demand from promoters and venues alike throughout the UK in 2008, with more than fifty gigs under her belt…. including Liverpool Sound City Music Festival and MTV Music Week.

Her newly recruited band, The Pleasure Principle, have added a radically new dimension to her already powerful material and 2008 has finished on a high note with a coveted invitation for the band to perform a showcase gig at the SXSW International Music Festival in Austin, Texas in March 2009.

Described by Radio 1 as a “significant talent”, many within the industry feel that 2009 will be her year.
