Bartosiewicz Makes Comeback
Edyta Bartosiewicz, one of the most popular Polish female vocalists of the 1990s, is back with a new album and tour.

After a string of hugely successful and critically acclaimed albums, at the end of the 1990s Bartosiewicz took a break that became a 15-year hiatus. Except for the odd duet with other popular performers and several announcements about a comeback that never happened, little was heard from her. Last year, fans were finally rewarded for their patience and Bartosiewicz released her much anticipated sixth solo album Oct. 1. Entitled Renovatio, the album went platinum and was hailed by critics as an accomplishment that restored quality and meaning in mainstream rock music.

This April and May, Bartosiewicz is embarking on a tour spanning dates in 10 Polish cities. The Love Renovatio tour kicks off April 11 at the Wielki Theater in ŁódĽ and will end May 13 at the Palladium club in Warsaw. Bartosiewicz will perform with an eight-strong band.

Bartosiewicz debuted in 1990 as a member of a group called Holloee Polloy, but her big break did not come until 1992 and her first solo album, Love. So began a brilliant career as a vocalist, composer and lyricist, with frequent invitations to team up on chart-topping singles with the best Polish music acts of the day.
