The singer and songwriter known as Polly Baker has won second place in MondoTunes' Pop/Rock Songwriting Contest with her latest single, “Leaving it Up to You.” The online music distribution company's three judges selected Baker's single from hundreds of entrants in July of 2014. Participating judges included producer Warren Huart (The Fray, Korn, Matisyahu), Interscope A&R rep. James Mormile, and Pussycat Dolls lead vocalist Kaya Jones. “Leaving it Up to You” is the most recent official release from Baker since her November 2013 single, “Good at Goodbyes.”

Polly Baker has cited as main artistic influences Taylor Swift, Kate Voegele, Selena Gomez, Katy Perry, and Maroon 5. Her sound is rooted in the country branch of pop music and blends the two genres without leaving an obvious line of demarcation between them. Her easy, natural singing style and traditional manner of songwriting make her accessible to listeners of both categories with room to spare for fans of rock and dance music.

Speaking of the themes of “Leaving it Up to You,” Baker writes, “Well, by now you all know that I write songs about boys. This latest single was written about this guy I had the biggest crush on, and he was vegan. And he didn't want to date me because I wasn't vegan and what-not. We were really good friends and our everyday talks would be like the chorus of the song: 'You like me, like me, but I'm still not really your type…' Honestly, when it comes down to it, I was set on becoming vegan to go out with him.”

Unsurprisingly, Baker's tenacious character and independent tone of voice, for which fans have come to admire her, win out in the end. She explains, “I think I ate a piece of cheese one day – my favorite cheese, actually – and, well, it didn't happen. Also, no disrespect to vegans/vegetarians/fruitarians everywhere is intended in this little story.”

Polly Baker is a pianist, singer and songwriter from northern Virginia currently living in Los Angeles. She has been singing since the age of four.

The award-winning “Leaving it Up to You” by Polly Baker is available online worldwide.
