About Emma Pollock
Scottish singer-songwriter Emma Pollock already had Glasgow -- and, for that matter, critics and fans on both sides of the Atlantic -- wrapped around her little finger before her debut album ever hit the stores. A founding member and singer/guitarist for Glaswegian indie darlings the Delgados, Pollock also helped create Chemikal Underground, the influential record label on which the band put out their own albums, as well as the debut releases of fellow Scots Mogwai and Arab Strap. While Chemikal Underground is still active (with Pollock's involvement), the Delgados split amicably in 2004. Pollock signed with 4AD in 2005, and the label released Watch the Fireworks in 2007.
