Musicians who keep their own counsel over an extended period of time represent an all-too-rare phenomenon. Polly Jean Harvey arrived fully formed with her accomplished 1992 debut, Dry. It was a critical smash, but like David Bowie, Neil Young, and other major recording artists before her, she refused to make the same record twice. After Dry came the ferocious Rid of Me, the blues-saturated To Bring You My Love, and so on throughout her discography, including 2016’s openhearted The Hope Six Demolition Project. If some albums work better than others—the wraith-like singing on White Chalk was a bit much—she’s become a confident performer since her first tentative Seattle gig. In a music world filled with people-pleasers and trend-hoppers, she’s the real deal. KATHY FENNESSY
