In late 2012, knowing what a huge Bowie fan I am, Nick Jones suggested that I listen to Paul Leahy’s new album ALL MESSED UP by Polly. I managed to get a copy from Richard Chapman at the Pointed Sticks show a few days later and the album quickly became my 2012 album of the year. I reached out to Paul on Facebook and we became “friends”.
I went to see Polly at LanaLous a couple weeks later and Paul introduced himself to me as he recognized me from my FB profile. He thanked me for the kind words in reviewing his album and thanked me for the support and coming to the show. Every time I subsequently saw Polly, Paul took the time to say hello and thanked me for coming. He is always so humble and so gracious. A wonderful talent, a great musician, a superb entertainer, but most importantly a lovely human being.
Love on ya Paul!
