PJ Harvey to take the stage in Istanbul
ISTANBULPJ Harvey, one of the most iconic musicians of our time, will be in Istanbul.
Polly Jean Harvey, known to millions as PJ Harvey, started her extensive music career in the late 1980s. In 1988, she joined Automatic Dlamini as a vocalist, but she wasn’t a full-time musician until 1991, when she formed the eponymous bass, drums, guitar trio. The trio released two albums, including the fantastic debut “Dry” and the Mercury Prize nominated second album “Rid of Me.” In 1993, she was named as the “Best Songwriter” and “Best New Female Singer” by Rolling Stone Magazine.
Harvey then focused on her solo career, releasing albums such as “Is This Desire?” “Stories from the City, Stories from the Sea,” “Uh Huh Her,” “White Chalk” and “Let England Shake.”
She is a two time Mercury Prize winner, which makes her the only artist to have been awarded Mercury Prize more than once. She also has six Grammy nominations and eight BRIT Awards nominations. In 2013, she was awarded an MBE for her services to music.
After five years, PJ Harvey’s highly anticipated new album “The Hope Six Demolition Project” was released on April 15.
PJ Harvey will be performing at Zorlu Performing Arts Center on June 8.
