Polly Jean Harvey is the essence of post modernism art and intellectual self expressionism – everything that I admire in my favorite artists. To me she is the musical equivalent to Anais Nin, Ayn Rand and Frida Kahlo all in one. Her music is not only at times challenging and inspirational but also makes you think and question thoughts and actions you may have committed in your own life. Her songs always give me strength, hope and faith in power in myself. When she sings, she sings for everyone – her voice is so universally unique that every man and woman can relate and revere. Her words are memorable, enlightening and poetically powerful. PJ Harvey is the one who will be remembered as the artist who not only influenced others around her but a generation of lyrical enthusiasts searching for substance in our rhythmic passion that we call music.
