Polly Wood Biography:
Half Kiwi and originally from Devon, Polly has been writing songs since the age of 12 but has arrived 'fashionably late' on the music scene, by current standards. She was instantly recognised as a huge talent on her very first demo CD, by a highly respected figure in the industry, at which point she decided to turn professional.
Credited with a music style similar to that of Sheryl Crow and Carole King, Polly is set to become a star in her own right!
Now approaching her fourth year on the music scene, Polly has spent this time 'honing the craft' of live performance. Working solo and with other world class musicians has enabled Polly to capture audiences at festivals and top class venues throughout Europe and the UK such as The Jazz Cafe, Bush Hall London and the O2 Academies.
While mainly focused on creating her own material, and co-writing, Polly has lent her vocal talent to various other artists, including featuring on several tracks of John Illsley's (the legendary Dire Straits bass guitarist) latest album, touring with him in summer 2010. Polly's integrity means she retains her credibility and personal style throughout her projects and performances.
Polly's debut album on which the legendary Sam Brown has been co-producing will be launched on the 1st March 2013.

CHARITY CYCLE RIDE 2012
Funding research to find a cure for 'triple negative breast cancer' which is a particularly aggressive form of breast cancer.
BRUGES TO SPA, BELGIUM
7th– 9th JUNE 2012.
* (Please note: transport will be organised to depart from London to Bruges on Wednesday 6th June in the afternoon and returning from Spa to London on Sunday 10th June 2012 in the afternoon)
WE ARE OFF AGAIN ON OUR THIRD FUND RAISING RIDE!!!!!!!
Cycling through the beautiful countryside of Belgium, the spiritual home of cycling.
Please join us on this fantastic, fun adventure, cycling approximately 250 miles in 3 days from Bruges, one of the most beautiful and historic cities in Europe known as the Venice of the North to the amazing city of Spa referred to as the ‘Pearl of the Ardennes’ renowned for its health-giving hot water springs.
All funds raised go directly to The Sarah Greene Breakthrough Tribute Fund which was established after Sarah Greene lost her battle with breast cancer in 2006 aged 44. Sarah’s Fund finances a number of research posts at the new Kings College London Breakthrough Breast Cancer Research Unit in Guys Hospital, London by awarding a number of gifted young doctors the opportunity to apply for a 5 year funded Fellowship (The Sarah Greene Fellowship) which costs approximately £400,000 each. It is also our aim to fund some equipment in the future to support the research.
The purpose of the Fellowships is to fund research and find a cure for 'triple negative breast cancer' which is a particular aggressive form of the disease (and the one that Sarah died of).
We have already raised close to £1 million from our previous two rides to Paris in 2008 and across Ireland in 2010 and have so far funded two researchers.
