In 2003 Paulusma was happily putting the finishing touches to her shed-recorded debut album Scissors in my Pocket when Bjork’s label, One Little Indian, signed her up and catapulted her round the world for six years, supporting Bob Dylan, Jamie Cullum, Joseph Arthur, Coldplay and many others.
Paulusma now releases her third album, Leaves from the Family Tree. On this joyful third album, she has collaborated with folk heroes Adem and Erin McKeown, rock violin diva Anna Phoebe and acclaimed film composer Michael Price of recent Sherlock fame, combining recordings from her garden shed, Pinewood Studios, and everywhere in between to create an insightful representation of the joys and complications of modern family life.
When Tom Robinson recently played a live version of Last Week Me on BBC 6Music, he said: “Just goes to show, all you need is talent… just one woman, a guitar and a voice.”
In what is the biggest Totnes Festival ever, there will be more than 50 events taking place in venues all across the town over the two weeks from Sunday 19th August.
