Sidney Polak is a one man band- a singer, songwriter, composer, talented drummer - and the voice of his generation. Polak skilfully blends different genres of music and produces a vibrant mixture of reggae, hip-hop, funk, and urban folk.
He once was one of the three co-owners of a drumming set and he became a drummer for the legendary Polish rock band T-Love when he was just shy of 19 years old. Work with T-Love brought him fame and acclaim, but Polak decided to branch out and explore what a solo career could offer. He recorded the well-loved and extremely popular radio hit “Otwieram wino”, which was a first single from his debut solo album released in 2004. Polak grabbed three Fryderyk statuettes for his solo effort: best songwriter, composer and best alternative album of the year.
He is now back with his third solo album - a musically diverse tale of the life in a big town. As a music writer, Polak is a master of different genres and as a songwriter he is a great observer of everyday life - sometimes funny, sometimes sad, always clever and honest in his approach do describing contemporary Poland.
