ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"The first thing a listener notices about Polish singer-songwriter Ola Bienkowska is the serenity imbued in her vocals. Angelic and smooth, her singing makes her album 'Résumé' one that is pretty easy to consume, but it's not for everyone. Many of the tracks are a touch too soft for a regular pop listener, yet great for someone looking for a more polished jazzy album. Even when the surprising guitar riffs show up on a song like, 'In Pursuit (Things That I'd Do)', Bienkowska's sense of sweetness is what stands out. She is particularly adept at lyric-writing, making a fine showing of love songs that lack clichéd sentiments, an anomaly for even the most accomplished songwriters. On 'Secondhand' she turns proverb, 'The clothes don't make the man' on its head: 'The clothes don't make the man/when they're positively secondhand'. It's that creativity that could land her a wider audience than just those used to lighter fare." BILLBOARD DISCOVERIES


After years of providing support for artists at home and internationally Polish singer-songwriter Ola Bieńkowska finally steps into her own to deliver an understated batch of jazz and blues flavored pop with a Slavic heart and a western vibe.

Backed by the crème de le crème of Polish musicians, this experienced performer finds her own voice with “Résumé” – a unique collection of beautifully crafted songs, haunting melodies and heartfelt lyrics, which provide an insight into Ola’s take on growing up in different cultures, experiencing life, love and searching for a home.

The most important ingredient however is the leading lady herself – classy, versatile, with a powerful stage presence, exuding experience and yet wonderfully emotional and spontaneous.

The debut album sums up Ola’s musical journey from her early days in a funk band, her jazz grooming with Polish legend Ewa Bem, her pop and theatre backgrounds and the rock she soaked up delivering her rendition of „Great Gig In The Sky“ over 400 times under the banner of both The Australian Pink Floyd Show and their British counterpart – BritFloyd.

2012 is shaping up to be a year of breakthroughs for Ola Bieńkowska; so stay tuned for the ride!
