No Woman Is The Sea

by Josaleigh Pollett

  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    The first physical release by Josaleigh Pollett available outside the USA! We love a classic CD and it turns out Josi does too, so we've been delighted to work on this. Early orders get a free NWITS badge, but that's only whilst stocks last.

    If you're in the US, yes, I know postage costs are WILD. We're hoping to get a quantity of CDs over the pond to reduce costs for you, but we need to sell a bunch of these first to afford shipping them over, which I don't have a timeline for just yet. If you want one in the meantime ordering here is the best way.

    Includes unlimited streaming of No Woman Is The Sea via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

‘No Woman Is The Sea’ — the debut international release from Salt Lake City’s melancholy indie-folk artist Josaleigh Pollett.

Taking inspiration from the likes of Sharon Van Etten, Jason Molina and Heather Woods Broderick, Pollett has crafted a collection of deeply-introspective songs which grow with every listen. With an unflinching examination of heartbreak and grief, Pollett refers to this album as their ‘divorce record’, forged from the aftermath of a marriage breakdown that looms over every note of this powerful, personal record.

From a young age, Josaleigh has developed a desire to create a uniquely intimate brand of folk, earning early praise and a passionate fan base via local Utah record store label; Lavender Vinyl.

Originally released amid the turmoil of March 2020, the initial run of 300x 2LPs sold out lightning quick. Now, with this new reissue from Brighton, UK based label Cupboard Music ‘No Woman Is The Sea’ is finally available internationally in physical format.
