“Irish singer Imelda May is a walking, talking, singing embodiment of the 1950s. She wears leopard-print sweaters, tight bad-girl jeans and her hair in a ponytail. Her bangs are curled into a tight roll, known in England as a “quiff.” Although May has won numerous awards in 2009, her music harks back to a style that was popular in the ’50s: rockabilly.”- NPR

Debut Album Love Tattoo Out Now On Verve Forecast!
Dublin-born May, who has previously shared stages with Jeff Beck as well as Van Morrison, made her major label debut in late 2009 with Love Tattoo (Verve), which shot to #1 on the Irish charts, ahead of Bruce Springsteen and Eminem. Throughout the U.K. and Ireland, she has won honors from Rising Star of 2009 and Jazz Artist of 2009 to Best Female Newcomer. Shaking up traditional jazz with a magnificent voice that channels both Janis Joplin and Patsy Cline, her mix of jazz, rockabilly and blues yields a cool, swinging fusion both classic and oddly modern. Her fierce, unbridled concert performances have a reputation for being impassioned events.
