See the Music: Billy Burke - "Pollyanna Rose"

"It's obviously based on my wife. The song is her name," said singer and actor Billy Burke, when he sat down with ARTISTdirect.com editor and Dolor author Rick Florino for this latest edition of our exclusive "See the Music" series about "Pollyanna Rose" from Burke's debut album, Removed.
"From what I recollect, I started writing that song very early on in our relationship and I had forgotten about it," Burke revealed. "I was going through those archives and that came out and I finished the song much later in our relationship, so I had the luxury of drawing from eras and a time span that she and I have been through."
It's like a sonic document of their relationship. Burke's had quite a year with his killer performance in Drive Angry alongside Nicolas Cage, still promoting 2010's phenomenal Removed album, and with Red Riding Hood and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 . In other words, he's an unstoppable presence on screen and in the studio. We just really can't wait for his next album though…
