About

Poliana, professionally known as "Pops," is an artist, touring and session bass player based in Los Angeles. Originally from Brazil, Pops embarked on her musical journey at the age of nine. By twelve, she was already performing professionally with her family's corporate event band. Her foundational experiences in Brazilian music and Rock n’ Roll, coupled with significant influences from Funk Music and Grunge-Rock, have cultivated her into a highly versatile and proficient bass player.

Since relocating to Los Angeles in late 2019, Poliana has established herself as a prominent figure in the music industry, performing and touring nationally and internationally with acclaimed artists such as Adam Lambert, Willow, Avril Lavigne, Travis Barker, Larry Braggs (Tower of Power), Artur Menezes, Naia Izumi, Nik West, Lari Basilio, Nona Hendryx, Ozomatli, and Moein. Her performances have graced prestigious venues and events, including Wembley Stadium, Royal Albert Hall, The Late Late Show with James Corden, Global Citizen Festival, The Greek Theatre, The Baked Potato Jazz Club, and Koko in London.

Prior to her move to the United States, Poliana was the resident bass player for the Brazilian Late Show 'Adnight,' hosted by Marcelo Adnet. There, she performed alongside major Brazilian artists such as Anitta, Ivete Sangalo, Daniella Mercury, Ludmilla, Luiza Possi, and Emicida. Her exceptional musicianship has also led to features in gear promotions and reviews for renowned brands including Fender, Beetronics, and Darkglass Electronics.

Currently, Poliana is dedicated to the development of her debut EP, which delves into themes of isolation through an innovative fusion of music and visual art. Each track on the EP is complemented by a visual counterpart, be it a collage, unique photograph, or digital artwork, creating an immersive and cohesive artistic experience. This project exemplifies her ability to transcend traditional musical boundaries and create a multifaceted world of her own.

 

Poliana remains a highly sought-after artist for both live performances and studio sessions, continually enhancing her reputation as a remarkable and influential talent in the music industry.
