Initial 16: P.J. Harvey

As we continue our look at the 16th letter, we move on to British artist P.J. Harvey. If there was ever a musical successor to the Pretenders’ Chrissie Hynde, it would be Harvey. Not only does she slightly resemble Hynde, she is also an excellent guitarist. Harvey’s single “Good Fortune” is from her fifth album “Stories from the City, Stories from the Sea” and was released in late 2000.

I don’t know why “Good Fortune” didn’t do very well on the charts. It failed to even chart on the US Alternative Rock chart – the place where her singles normally do well. In her native Britain, the song narrowly missed the Top 40 by placing at the #41 slot.

“Good Fortune” was written by Harvey and was produced by her, Mick Harvey (no relation), and Rob Ellis. Mick Harvey normally supports Nick Cave while Ellis was P.J. Harvey’s former drummer.
