Polly O’Keary's eclectic blues style reflects her colorful history. She grew up in a log cabin with no electricity or plumbing and began her music career a teen working bars in Mexico. At 19 she had a husband in prison and an 8th grade education. Twenty years later, she was a bassist for touring blues bands, playing a total of four continents, was one of the Pacific Northwest’s most highly awarded blues artists, and was working toward a Ph.D.

Her fourth album, Black Crow Callin', features the incendiary guitar work of California Central Coast legend David Miller, as well as the technical mastery of her long-time world touring partner and drummer Tommy Cook.
