John Parish and Polly Jean Harvey have been making music together for more than two decades. And while Harvey is better known for a solo career that has made her one of the most vital artists of the era, Parish is the guy who initially recognized and nurtured her singular skills. He in turn has produced and played on three of her solo albums (1995’s To Bring You My Love, 1998’s Is This Desire? and 2007’s White Chalk) and has long been a sounding board whether in an “official” capacity or not.

Their latest release as a duo (following 1996’s Dance Hall at Louse Point) is A Woman A Man Walked By, a diverse collection of songs that range from the straight-up Rock of “Black Hearted Love” to the acoustic-driven melancholia of “Leaving California” to the dirge-like, Beefheartian Blues of “Pig Will Not.”

They celebrate their latest collaboration at the Madison Theatre in Covington. Read Jason Gargano's interview here.
