Pollyanna is a French indie-folk project lead by Isabelle Casier. Her honest songwriting and her heart-warming voice has led her to many different places all across the western hemisphere. She shared the bill with riot grrrls stars (Sleater Kinney), sophisticated indie pop (Wilco), French chanson (Françoiz Breut), rootsy folksters in Tennessee and shanty choirs in Germany. A curiosity and taste for friendliness that is noticeable whether she plays solo or lines up a full band. Despite a natural flair for minor chords, Isabelle’s cheerful presence, eclectic taste and experiences as an outsider (in Europe and the Americas) open up her musical field to all things pop, rock, folk and folklores. A fair collection of ballads that often sound like pure classics.
