    An American Werewolf in London which to my mind bestows an uneasy Eighties tone upon the place only exacerbated by the incongruity of this great music establishment lurking beneath a brash pub full of suits Keen to catch up and rapidly exchange many views in a short space of time with a friend I don t see too often during the support acts we ended up sharing some observations about what set her apart from the crowd aside from having a pretty voice and singing in her own accent which is such a rarity in the British singer songwriter scene the folk scene aside notably her lyrics are always well written and avoid the predictable off the shelf word choices shoehorned metaphors and unimaginative rhyming patterns that so many singer songwriters employ lo how those angst ridden guitarists feel pain in the rain again there are just too many budding troubadours who cry bitter tears for years not to mention how often having another lover causes one quite unnecessarily to recall one s sister and brother for no apparent reason Aside from a far more considered lyrical approach to her material originality shines out from Polly Paulusma s actual choice of subject matter too Without resorting to the hackneyed fall back topic of the lonely misunderstood poor broken heart that staple of artists the world over there are not that many songwriters who can consistently hold one s attention while navigating other themes Across three albums she manages this deftly her best songs generally eschewing the angry angst and breakups in favour of a jubilant thanks for life and love or for bleak crushing reflections on the loss of friendships or loved ones for bereavement the fragility of life and the ultimate importance of being thankful and savouring every minute we have Where anger does reign supreme in One Day for example the cause of her ire is not even broached and the rage itself is masked in a vivid and creative description of how to contain one s emotions both metaphorically and in a marvellous touch of perspective quite literally I noticed another key feature of her craft during her set Not being a guitarist I do not recognise guitar tunings and chord inversions when I hear them But watching her play I was able to observe her choices of tuning and high fretboard positions they granted her access to a wider range of walking bass lines and melodic progressions within the chords themselves which are not often present in the three chord arrangements of lesser musicians I always feel you can tell a songwriter who plays or writes at the piano even if their primary instrument is the guitar The keyboard tends to lead to a wider range of chord progressions and musical motifs even at a basic level Of course capable guitarists can achieve their own levels of complexity but past learning their first 20 chords or so few bother expanding their musical palette any further Whether
