THE DEAD POLLYS is an extension of the singer-songwriter project Eldinger started by Nizze in 2011. The actual birth of these dying pollyboys was the meeting between Nizze with his past in the punkrock scene hans Dr Glitter with a history in the reggae and country scene (and much much more). As the first songs evolved Dr Glitter actually destroyed them completely as he was adding this dimension of lustre to arrangements that were meant to be quite hard. The first
reaction Nizze had was to stop the madness, but as he had the time of his life he let it pass and was soon infected by these influences.
IT IS A PUNKROCK ACT, SOMEWHOW given the idea that it is uncontrollable and wild in its creation phases and the lyrics actually is caring for freedom and people. At the same time it is not a punkrock band at all but more a rock band with influences from what the day has to offer.
INTOLERANCE is one of the subjects that emerges quite often and we like to bring our listeners to a musical journey into the heart and mind of the world and people we have met.
DEBUTE 2013 was the E.P "Waiting For Tomorrow" released by The Dead Pollys and the US DIY label Infested Records. The album was recorded with Sten Gustafsson on bass.

12 of my original songs written and performed by me with the help of some truly exceptional musicians and friends
The Band: Ejk - Acoustic & Electric guitar, Piano, Vocals Kai Alex Stöber - Electric & Bass guitar Demos Horn - Percussion, Drums Robby Ballhause - Acoustic guitar
I chose to record it at Lands End studio with Robbie Ballhause in Hannover Germany. Together with some great musicians who worked under great pressure and showed amazing skill (and patience!) I wanted to keep the "real" sound of my music so I insisted upon it being a mostly live recording. Everyone agreed this was a great idea but did put all involved under a bit more pressure and added to the work load. The other amazing thing about the recording was none of us had ever played together before, the drummer hadn't even heard most of the songs, Robbie hadn't heard any of them! They all showed how amazingly talented they were and i think because of this we found a really fresh and unique sound. We had a great but exhausting time but i love the results, many musicians from around the world have congratulated us on our achievement.
Ejk or Elleni Jean Kempson, Music is my life! I am a musician, singer songwriter and recording artist living on the Greek Island of Lesvos. I am 16 years old. In the last year I have shot to fame locally and across Greece. My first album "15 Years" is now available. All of the songs are written by me, the lyrics come mostly from my life experiences and observations, sometimes political. The music is mostly rock and rock ballads and includes a Greek love song.

Kai Alex Stöber - Electric guitar, Bass guitar, great friend.
Demos Horn - Percussion, Drums, an amazing percussionist who has a huge future.
Robby Ballhause - Acoustic guitar,
I began really writing songs at age of eleven which is the first song on my CD called Future, at fourteen my first famous song “pink is not a colour its an attitude” finished in the number one position after I entered it into the Beat 100 charts in March 2013. To date this song has had over 100,000 views on the internet
The publicity that came with my big win meant that I was in the national spotlight. My story was featured in many newspapers both national and local. I gave many live radio interviews and two TV interviews to national TV stations, one of which was live where i also performed my winning song. I was also given special awards by the Mayor of the island and by the head of the North Aegean education authority as I had used the publicity to highlight some of the
issues facing students in Greece.
Some of my newspaper articles and TV interviews can be seen here
Since my win i have performed on stage many times both solo and with my rock group “The Reapers”. “The Reapers” have also played as support group for visiting famous groups here on the island.
I am also one of the founding members of "The Siberian Hamsters". I mostly taught myself guitar starting at age 5, using the internet and soaking up small lessons from visiting musicians. I now attend a music school here on the island which has given me new opportunities to learn new skills on piano and guitar and also to work with other musicians on collaborative projects. I speak three languages fluently, Greek, English and German, and working on a fourth.
