Not Made of Stone
This may be Polly Moller's fourth album of original work, but it's the first album by Polly Moller & Company. Words and music are by Polly (except the Duran Duran cover), and arranged by the band: Polly Moller - vocals, flute, bass flute, acoustic guitar, autoharp, electronica Daniel Magazin - piano John Moreira - electric guitar Will Grant - electronica Jim Carr - bass Jeff Davis - percussion Not Made of Stone was recorded, mixed and mastered by Jeff Davis at Lucky Dog Studio in Eugene, Oregon. The songs on this album are all about confronting limitations -- finding out that your endurance isn't infinite, and that you have a breaking point. Each tune, as it grew in Polly's mind, turned out to be about getting to the limits of endurance, and the aftermath of that moment. Composer/performer/bandleader Polly Moller improvises on the flute and bass flute. She also composes, creates performance art, and heads up a revolving cast of characters called Polly Moller & Company. Since 1995, she's recorded three solo albums and performed in diverse venues all over the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. Polly has been awarded grants by the American Composers Forum Subito Program, the American Composers Forum Community Partners Program, and the National Foundation for Advancement in the Arts. Her recordings have been released on Albany Records, Pax Recordings, Mindspore Records, and Silver Wheel Music.
